'Gun Control' Against The
AR-15 Is Full Of Lies

Efforts to outlaw the AR-15 are part of an incremental
movement to ban all semi-automatic guns

“This conflict over the 2nd amendment and the attempted removal of firearms rights will ultimately result in a civil war that will eventually balkanize the US along political, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines,” wrote the Christchurch, New Zealand mass murderer in his demented manifesto. Some Americans, unfortunately, immediately used the bloodbath to support their political causes.

Sen. Chris Murphy wondered, for instance, why Americans needed “semi-automatic” rifles, at all. “Nobody needs an AR-15 to hunt,” the Connecticut senator tweeted. “Nobody needs a semi-automatic rifle to defend their home. But mass shooters NEED these weapons in order to murder as many people as efficiently as possible. And so nobody will miss them when they are illegal – except for the killers.”

One of the nice things about having individual rights codified in a Constitution is that Americans don’t (or shouldn’t) have to explain to government officials why they choose to practice them. I’m certain nothing in the Second Amendment mentions hunting, because the right of self-defense—an individual concern, as well as a collective one—wasn’t about shooting deer, it was about protecting Americans from the state confiscating their firearms. .....

One of the most popular statements against the AR style rifle is "it's designed as a weapon of war" - usually regarding it erroneously as being the full auto version, and also being swayed by the 'black rifle cosmetics'. The bottom line is as ever the constant push to ban any and all semi-auto rifles, which in turn presents the starting point for ultimately an attempted ban on all civilian owned firearms. The criminals will not complain.
