Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and she is holding it up for person's to view. I have no problem with either.
What I do have a problem with is that Democrats' agenda is to ban all firearms and it has been decided that the "Evil Black Rifle" is easiest to attack. It is unattractive, holds many rounds and is not used by knowledgeable hunters who want the best tool for the objective.
It is durable, reliable, lighter to carry and for some reason has a "cool" factor. It was chosen by the military because the lighter ammunition was easier to carry. It didn't hurt, in their opinion, that the gas operated cycle had less recoil. It might even have been considered to be easier to carry and shoot by women who were about to enter the military.
