Clearing the air about assault rifles

December 28, 2012
The Marietta Times

I just want to clarify a few things, I understand people fear the "AR15 Assault rifle" Eyeryone who owns one is owning a machine gun used by the military...Reality is the AR-15 is a semi automatic rifle, if you have a"Compliant" AR-15 it has a "Bullet Button" to remove the magazine, that means a tool has to be inserted to release the magazine, a 10 rounder I must add. Not everyone who has an AR-15 is Rambo, nor do they wish to be. Almost everyone who learned to shoot, learned on a .22 rifle beacuse it is saffe for kids to shoot...By the way a .22 bullet is .222 in size an Ar-15 fires a .224 bullet 2 one thousandths large, many .223 bullets are nearly the same weight as a .22 bullet.
