Politicians and reporters are quick to talk about the need to restrict or ban assault rifles. But an AR-15 is not an assault rifle. It is a semi-automatic rifle. It is not a high-powered rifle. It fires a .223 round which is basically a .22 caliber round. If we use the same criteria to ban reporters and politicians that they are using to try to ban rifles, we'd have a lot fewer scary looking reporters and politicians looking at us on our TV sets.
