I was shooting a friend's AR15 yesterday at the range. If I was asked to kill a room full of liberals it would be the LAST weapon I would choose. I would do FAR more damage with my glock 19.

Twice as many people die from getting hit by punches and kicks than they do by rifles according to the FBI.

Millions of AR-15s have been sold and yet the most popular firearm for homicide is the simple handgun.

BAN ARS!

So we have now concluded that a few who fear the appearance of an AR wanted to use Sandy Hook as propaganda to make themselves sleep easier at night?

I fear the appearance of an AR when one appears in the hands of a nutjob who thinks he's lord of the universe because he has one.

That is not even the full video.

there is another out there, that is uncut from the chopper over the car. It shows after the guy who clears the weapon, two men in white forensic suits each grab one long gun, and walk to a trailer on site. 2 men, one gun each. Only the first one appears to grab the "shot gun". The other you cannot see so well, but both are holding long guns.

So, which is it? Is the first a shot gun, and the second the AR? Are they both ARs? Is one a shotty and the other an AK? Do we have a crime scene photo of the AR used in the killing spree? Just a question, believe what you want.
