Average citizen? I guess I'm an average citizen and I own an AR15 because I can. I'm a former LEO, retired, a military veteran, degree in Criminal Justice and have a CCW permit. I use my AR15 for varmint hunting as well as self defense should the need ever arise. According to the antis I shouldn't be allowed to own that firearm because I am neither current law enforcement or active duty military & its an ugly black "assault" weapon. Will someone please define for me what exactly is an "assault" weapon, and don't used the tired label that its an "automatic" because fully automatic weapons have been mostly illegal in the US for nearly 40 years unless you possess a very expensive license from the ATFE.
