They aren't assault rifles, the media says they are to feed off the ignorant. They are SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLES, nothing military grade about that.
The AR-15 is a long arm semi automatic rifle.
The m16 is an assault rifle.
what's the difference? besides a few minor cosmetics? The m16 is select fire. That's the difference.
And, my friend, up until sandy hook, the internet referred to the AR-15 as an assault weapon. Argue semantics all you want.
