An Assault Rifle Is Not A Tool

gun, gun accident, gun control, gun death, gun suicide, gun violence, AR-15, assault rifle,
This is a somewhat light-hearted presentation, but it does so well illustrate the problem as a lot of us see it. As a former soldier who carried an M-16 for 10 years, I know firsthand what awesome killing machines it and the newer M-4 are. If, fates forbid, I had to go back into service, then that's the rifle I'd want. It's excellent at what it is designed for, but that is only one thing: killing people in combat.

Such a thing simply has no place other than on the battlefield in the hands of soldiers. It is not a "tool" with other legitimate uses.
