Americans should use their minds and not buy into the media hype.
The AR is a weapon with the body style of a military weapon, like a body style of a vehicle. The AR weapons are not automatics, they are semi-automatics. This means you have to pull the trigger every time to fire, just like your pistols and semi-auto shotguns.
I agree that the extended magazines are not necessary, but to ban the AR style will not change anything. They also are saying to ban all military style weapons. Well the military uses 9mm Beretta pistols, pump shotguns and have used the Remington 700 as a sniper rifle. So how far are we willing to go?
All responsible gun owners need to let their voices be heard.
