Well that's not true. Except dead is dead. Using the fact of slightly larger bulled/projectile and increased powder load to increase range accuracy and impact velocity the M-16 was chosen over the AK 47 higher power or 30 cal automatic/semi automatic rifles. Plus they are lighter even with their standard 30 round sstandard capacity .
But vinners have convinced me that all rifles and revolvers are the problem. We have regenerated the wild wild west all over again by slackening gun laws. By putting a federal tax on all ammunition we can handle this just like cigarettes. With the exception that those gun aficionados and collectors need a special license and an acceptable inspected vault to store them all in.
This ever increasing war games scenario, war movie copying must be stopped if the removal of assault rifles is not the answer and Vinners and other individuals have told me they conceal carry and there for could kill 5 or ten anytime of their choosing if the were crazy or drug addicts.
Lets price the ammunition out of sight and limit the ammount anyone is allowed to order or have.Washington put serial numbers on bullets you turn in old casings you get to buy more.
