Listen closely (well, read carefully, I guess…). The military does NOT use AR-15’s. Did you get that? I’ll write it again. The military does NOT use AR-15’s.
AR-15’s do not go full automatic. The military uses fully automatic (whether to a 3 shot burst, or some go fully automatic, like a machine gun. The military does NOT use AR-15’s.
The AR-15 is only semi-automatic. It is not a “machine gun.” The military does NOT use AR-15’s. The AR-15 looks scary, but those are just cosmetic features. Have you ever seen that kid that has a Honda with a big spoiler and loud mufflers, but does 1–60 in 11 seconds. Yeah, that’s all the cosmetic features do. Make it look cool but doesn’t change how it works.
The people who tell you that it is a military weapon are either very ignorant (meaning they really don’t know anything about guns) or are flat out lying to you. Those are the only 2 options. They think it’s OK to lie to you about it, if it will help them get their way and ban them. They are the same people who have already started calling any hunting rifle “Sniper rifles.”
