There are many people nationwide who are calling the AR-15 a weapon of war, and demanding another assault weapons ban. So, I am putting together a little test, using pictures. Below, you will see pictures of seven rifles, and there will be questions to follow. Look at the pictures below:
Of the seven weapons above, three of them are semi-automatic, and four of them are fully automatic. Which are which?
Of the seven weapons above, which of them would have been illegal to own under the 1994 assault weapons ban, and why?
All but two of the above weapons have been issued to the soldiers of either the United States or a European nation. Which of them hasn’t?
What characteristics make a weapon lethal enough to ban, or what criteria would you use to specify what constitutes a weapon that should be illegal?
If you cannot answer at least three of the above questions correctly, then how can you claim enough knowledge to demand laws be changed? How can you hope to ban something that you cannot even accurately describe?
