Known as a symbol of freedom to its admirers and an assault weapon to its detractors, the AR-15 is one of the most controversial weapons in America. Lightweight and easily customizable AR-15-style weapons have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years taking center stage at gun ranges and shooting competitions across the country. According to the most recent national figures, there are an estimated 393 million civilian-owned firearms in the U.S. And there are about 20 million AR-15-style weapons in the country. Firearm manufacturers have seen revenue surge taking in about $1 billion from the sale of AR-15-style weapons in the past decade. But the weapons have also been involved in a number of mass shootings. AR-15-style weapons were used at shootings in an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, a Fourth of July parade in suburban Chicago and a grocery store in upstate New York. Critics argue the weapons are also aggressively marketed by gun companies targeting at-risk young males. So what is behind the popularity of the AR-15 and what responsibility do gun makers have when their products are used in mass shootings? Watch the video to learn more.

Because joe Biden let out one of the biggest arms dealers in the world. Bad mistake if he takes our guns we can just buy them from him now

Politicians understand that VICTIMLESS felony convictions that permanently abolish people's gun rights are key to the full abolishment of all guns and even ammunition!
Eternally removing gun rights from honorable citizens for victimless DUI crimes (Without vehicle accidents or even incidents) while conveniently allowing these same, newly created felons to retain "voting rights" based on victimless offenses (No injured parties) would persuade all "prohibited voters" to vote to disarm everybody for total 2nd amendment abolishment.
Make no mistake these newly created felons (Moms and Dads) with retained voting rights are coming after your guns and ammunition, now too! (For Equality)

And as always we can rely on the main stream media to do their best to point the finger at guns and not people. And as usual you lied about how many A.R. 15 style weapons have been in “mass shootings“ and that definition has changed with time. Just so you can say there has been many more mass shootings. As everyone knows when a policeman is needed in seconds, if you are lucky he will be there in minutes and in some places over an hour if at all. Their job is to investigate the crime because they can’t be there to stop it. You are your only protector. And the biggest lie of all is how The media plays down how many good people with a gun have stopped bad people from shooting or killing good people and most of the time they didn’t even have to fire a shot. The main stream media has no morals.

How about we look into the mental health issues and start securing our schools. Stop blaming the guns.

Most common rifle platform in the US, most common used in mass shootings.
Yeah, that's like saying the Honda Accord is the most common vehicle, also most common car to be in an accident.

Wow! Whoever made those BS should at least comprehend that the vast majority of handguns are semiautomatic. Even a revolver is semiautomatic! There is nothing special about the AR platform other than morons think it looks scary.

I’ll tell you why because there is a Democrat in the White House who keeps saying he is coming to get them. You also have every idiot Democrat in Politics trying to pass laws to bam them. One must ask yourself why they are so hell bent on taking them. What are they planning? If they unarm the population they can take away any of your other freedoms and Rights and you won’t be able to do sh*t about it.

Those that advocate for a "Gun Ban," the solution is simple; DON'T BUY A GUN!!!! However, your paranoia should not be able to infringe upon the ability of others to defend themselves.

The NRA is the gun safety candidate and has been for decades Don't try to mix safety and control. To this day control advocates will not allow safety to be taught in schools like when i was young. We all know why.

I grew up in the early 60's. I still remember shooting competitions at school and truck gun racks in the parking lot. It's NOT guns that lead to violence. When violence is happening you need a gun at your ready.

Some of the reasons why gun sales have gone in the past few years. Dems soft on crime policies (Some places like Chicago they're now kicking violent criminals back out onto the streets) and the Defund the Police movement. I wonder how many people are killed every year in reckless driving accidents and dui accidents. It's easy if you have the money to buy a car that's to powerful for your skill level, Just look at the number of idiots crashing leaving car meets. The #1 reason we have the 2A, Is if the government tries to take away our rights we have the Tools to over throw the government. Which is why before WWII the Nazi Government took away gun rights from the people. I know there's a lot of people in China right now that wish they had access to guns like we do. The one thing you barely hear about is the number of times guns are used lawfully to stop a crime and in some cases without firing a shot.

You know who has an uncontrollable urge to force their will on others?? Communist and totalitarian supporters!!! Oh, and misinformed useful idiots, they are the stampeding sheeple that have zero knowledge of guns and believe all the misinformation from anti rights groups funded by billionaires.
