Clearly, anyone in favor of civilian AR ownership is 1) disturbed, 2) an NRA stooge, or 3) has a financial interest in arms sales.
…here’s the thing.
The AR-15 and its variants should be banned.
Specifically, the country should return to a 1990s ban on so-called “assault weapons” that U.S. Congress let expire in 2004, and which included the AR-15 and similar guns, as well as certain higher-capacity magazines. The time is ripe to have this discussion.
“I do not support the unrestricted ownership of semiautomatic assault weapons by civilians,” [said Dean Winslow, a doctor and retired Air Force colonel].
No rational person would — unless it is someone with their own idiosyncratic attachment to the AR-15 or is a politician paid off by the National Rifle Association, the gun industry or some other lobbyist.
