“An AK-47 is a Russian-made weapon that is made for war. An AR-15, which is an answer to the AK-47.."
An assault weapon is not useful for hunting game. It isn’t easily available, like a handgun, for self-defense. It is designed for one purpose: war. These are weapons for domestic, homegrown terrorism.If you're a blithering moron who has no idea what you're talking about, sure, then both of the above statements are true. That seems to fit all three of the above listed. Anyone w/ their head not firmly planted inside their rectum either knows or can easily learn that the 'AR-15' is THE most popular sporting firearm out there and is VERY good for hunting and self-defense in the home.
So, as usual, to push for gun control, one has to use lies, ignorance and fear.
UPDATE: It should be noted that a month after this article was published that the Detroit Police Chief in question was suspended for misconduct and retired for having an improper relationship w/ a subordinate (ironically the same reason his predecessor was fired). The subordinate, again note another police officer, made insinuations of suicide during the affair and was made to surrender her service weapon.
These are the people that gun control advocates like Ladd Everitt want to give a monopoly of force.
