The NRA would like you to believe that
assault weapons like the AR-15 are great for hunting and other recreational activities. What a pile of rubbish!
Anyone who says they need an assault weapon in order to hunt is not much of a hunter. There’s no skill involved in spraying multiple rounds per second at a helpless animal. Assault weapons are designed for one thing and one thing only: to kill as many human brings in the shortest time possible.
The killers at Aurora, Sandy Hook, San Bernadino, Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs and Stoneman Douglas understood this. They all used AR-15s to speed their slaughter. .They were hunting people, not animals or birds. And they were grimly successful.
Yet the NRA continues to fight any ban on assault weapons. They wrap themselves in the Second Amendment, intimidating members of congress and even the president. . It’s time those elected officials were shown the door!
