Are you guys under the impression that the "assault" rifles we are talking about are full auto? To get a full auto (legally) in this country is almost impossible. I can load and fire a hunting rifle as fast as any AR type rifle, plus there are many that are more powerful and accurate then any civilian version AR.
EXACTLY THANK YOU! semi auto weapons arnt as wonderful as one who doesnt shoot may think. i can fire my pump action somtimes faster than my buddie with his semi auto.
