An analysis...

THE HEART OF TEXAS -- I don’t know about you, but personally, I am sick and tired of hearing people tell me what I do or do not need. In particular, I refer to the ongoing national debate on firearms, and whether or not anyone needs these so-called “assault weapons,” to include the AR-15 -- the most popular firearm platform in the country.  . . .

Thanks for info......always thought that AR stood for (another round) which came in handy due to my lack of skills with gun...Good with bow and arrow.

Alvin, Nice try. AR does not stand for assault rifle. I spent over 20 years in the Army as an Infantry Officer. Long before Colt bought the rights to what is now the M-16, the Fairchild ArmaLite corporation developed the AR-15,... More ›
