The difference between an AR-15 and a Military Assault Rifle

The Gun Control crowd has done a great job at confusing the public as to what an assault rifle is and what a modern sporting rifle, such as an AR-15 actually is.  I hear a lot of people saying that they want a ban on military style rifles and weapons.  What I believe they mean when they say military style weapons are those weapons that fire multiple rounds with one pull of the trigger BUT they believe that an AR-15, an AK-47 and similar rifles are these rifles as well, and the truth is, they are not.

The video below, found at Arms Vault, was done by the Military Arms Channel and does a great job at explaining the differences between an assault rifle used in the military and an AR-15 and rifles like it as well as showing that a magazine ban on 30 round magazines for 10 round magazines makes a 1/2 second difference in shooting time.  The video is short.  If you are confused by all of the talk going on about banning certain guns, or if you think you know what you are advocating, take the 6 minutes and watch the video.

    1. Thanks for commenting. I am glad that this post has helped to clarify the differences for you. I believe that with the proper knowledge people will not fear firearms, but recognize them as a tool that should be treated with respect, like all tools.

      Hope you continue to come back to read the blog!

    1. I agree, even among my friends and family people are confused, so I hoped this post helped to clarify it a bit for some people.

      Thank you for commenting and I hope you come back to read more.

  3. An AR-15 would be a good home defense weapon for a veteran (i.e., a civilian who served a term in the military), because it has the same manual of arms as the M-16/M4 assault rifles with which the veteran trained and qualified while on active duty. But the weapon has been so demonized in the media that I would be afraid to own one. If you ever did have to shoot a home invasion robber with it, an anti-gun district attorney (or a plaintiff's lawyer in a civil suit) would try to make you look trigger-happy, and would cite the "assault rifle" as evidence that you were a Rambo wannabe.
