Take a .308 Winchester deer rifle, which nobody is talking about banning, and then see what IT does to your side of beef. Sorry little boy, an AR is not a powerful gun. Assault rifles are, BY DEFINITION, weak. The term basically means "rifle capable of automatic fire chambered in a varmint round". Because if you hunt anything bigger than coyotes and antelope with .223 Remington, you will go to JAIL for animal cruelty.

No, they don't. That would make them useless at ranges beyond throwing a rock. As I can hit a human target at 300 meters with iron sights using an M16, I guarantee you that the round isn't tumbling and "breaking apart" out of the barrel. A round out of an M4 or AR15 isn't going to be as accurate at 300 meters, but it's because the barrel is shorter. Which is why pistols aren't very good beyond about 25 meters.

Why is it you loonies speak with such certainty about things you clearly know nothing about? Have you any idea how many people are laughing at your idiot posts?

No rifle there at Sandy HooK, nutzo!

You fail to grasp my point. .223 Remington—the round AR-15s and M16s are chambered in—is so weak, it cannot achieve a humane kill on a deer. Far from "blowing it apart", it makes a small wound that bleeds out slowly.

Check your local game regs. I'll wager they specify calibers above .223 Remington.

Cease to flaunt your ignorance, little boy.

You know very well how the rounds tumble and break apart out of 'assault rifles" . . just don't let the US women see the pictures of the Sandy Hook children dismembered by the shots. That wouldn't work to well for the NRA argument.

Really? Go ahead and post all of the people who 'have gone to jail for animal cruilty"for blowing apart a deer. you DO know how to google, right?

AZY,

Give it up. You are trying to educate a Fool-Aid slurping moron.

Not, of course, that a civilian-legal AR is an assault rifle, since they're only capable of semi-auto fire. AR doesn't stand for "assault rifle" in the context of Eugene Stoner's designs. It's "Armalite Rifle", that being where he worked at the time. Otherwise the AR-10, chambered in the aforementioned .308 Winchester (7.62 NATO) would've been BR-10, because it's a battle rifle.
