Also, to the Senator's point, the.308 round I used hunting recently was a 180 grain bullet with the ballistic coefficient of .484. The standard .223 AR-15 uses bullets in the range of 35-45 grains with a coefficient of around .20. In layman terms, at a similar velocity my bullet is a LOT more high-powered than the typical 'evil looking' AR-15, and it would remain legal under this ridiculous bill.
Dems show they do not care about facts only perception. An AR-15 is a personal defense weapon and an equalizer for trained children like the deputy's son in Houston in 2010 or any mother protecting her family. The so-called "experts" behind the bill do not know what they are talking about and do not care about statistics, only power.
