Lol. There's "gun culture", the folks who like collection or hunting or going to the range.
Then there's the real gun culture which you'll see in every inner city across America, with gangbangers gunning down gangbangers and innocents by the dozens, every single say, with illegal guns.
No. There is more to it than just that. But I guess if your goal was to deflect, you achieved that goal.
Full automatic and burst weapons require a very special license to own. License that cost many thousands of dollars, along with a very large amount of red tape.
NO standard AR 15 is sold to people that can do burst fire without that license.
Rep. Chris Harris represents Pike County, where Donald Trump won 80 percent of the vote.
He previously had an A rating from the NRA. Now, Harris says wants to see a ban on assault weapons, the outlawing of bump stocks, and deeper background checks for gun buyers.
“I have always been a strong advocate for the 2nd Amendment and I will continue to be, but the time has come for common sense action,” he said on the floor of the statehouse, according to a local newspaper.
Let us not forget the NRA accepted all that dirty Russian money, are they really "patriots" or a fifth column.
And it means that any full and impartial investigation of Russia's efforts to influence our political process needs to follow the Russian money flowing into the coffers of the Clintons, their foundation and their top associates.
The New York Times reported in 2015 that “as the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation.”

I never belonged to the NRA... at least I didn't until this past week. I joined along with the wife and our kids. Best $120 I've spent in awhile.
You simply don't like the fact your lack of logic has been proven yet again.
You chase the NRA boogeyman and its gun culture while widely ignoring the many, many more killed every day at the hand of illegal guns.
Perhaps your issue is you're all emotion. It's as if you've never thought anything thru.

You cant logically/honestly refute the fact that an AR-15 is no different than a M-16 other than it's cyclic rate, they are both assault rifles.
