I shot one recently. I'm not against guns, but there was no doubt in my mind what that thing was built for. Mowing stuff down. The user can define what stuff he or she would like to mow down. I don't ever see a hunter needing to obliterate varmint with a weapon such as this so I'm not sure what it's purpose is besides taking a bunch of people out. I have a bolt action. It fits under the category of tool because it legitimately is used for hunting. I know zero hunters who go out into the mountains to use their AR-15 as a tool. In fact, it's laughable to think it's the right "tool" for any hunting job. I know quite a few people who own one and they only use it like it's a big kids toy. It's not a tool. Some people setup targets and blast away for personal amusement while others use them for mass murder. The only other valid category is for warfare. Mass murder, personal amusement, and war. Never is an AR-15 a tool.
