Production of the AR-15 sporting rifles a big mistake
By Jim Darnell
Daily Record Columnist

Choose your battles carefully.

That’s good advice to parents with teenagers. It’s good advice for politicians. Some issues are too emotionally charged and not worth the fight. I would give the same advice to the American gun manufacturers and the National Rifle Association.

I’m a strong Second Amendment rights person. I stand against fire arms registration and government control and confiscation of our guns. But I strongly feel that the firearm manufacturers of our country are making a big mistake in producing the AR-15 sporting rifles.

Ever since Colt introduced the first AR-15 into the hunting world more than 30 years ago they have been very popular. It’s now being produced in several heavier calibers by all major gun manufacturers and is the all-time No. 1 selling rifle.

The AR-15 looks very similar to the M16 service rifle first used in combat in Vietnam. It’s similar in looks to the military rifle used by our vets in the first Gulf War. It also has similar features to an AK-47.

Therein lies the problem. These modern sporting rifles are inflammatory in looks — they don’t look like modern hunting rifles. They are military in looks. They look like they were produced to kill men, not deer.

The AK-47 is the most widely distributed assault rifle in the world and almost always associated with wild terrorists. And most Americans can’t tell the difference in the looks of an AK-47 and a modern AR-15 hunting rifle.

Granted, the AR-15 is not an assault weapon.

Unlike the AK-47 it is not fully automatic (pull the trigger and fire the whole clip). It shoots one bullet at a time like my semi-automatic 30-06 that I hunt deer with.

Granted, the new AR-15’s are compact, light, rugged and accurate. They make excellent hunting rifles. The problem is their inflammatory looks.

The press immediately jumped on the letters AR to mean “assault rifle.” That’s not what AR means. AR abbreviates Armalite. But the anti-gun press conveniently overlooks the facts.

The firearms manufacturers defend their production of the AR-15 modern hunting rifles with an argument from history. World War I soldiers used the 1903 Springfield bolt-action rifle in combat. When they returned to America they wanted a hunting rifle in the same 30-06 cartridge with the smooth bolt action cycling that they experienced with the Springfield. Thus, the production of millions of great bolt action sporting rifles like the Model 70 Winchester, the Ruger 77, and the 700 Remington. The bolt action rifle is still the most accurate and popular rifle among the world’s big game hunters.

Then came WW II and the introduction of the first semi-automatic service rifle, the M-1 30-06, popularly known as the Garand (named after the inventor).

When these brave service men returned home a wide range of semi-automatic hunting rifles and shotguns gained widespread popularity among both hunters and target-shooting enthusiasts.

The manufacturers ask, “Shouldn’t Vietnam and Gulf War vets have a hunting rifle like their service rifles?”

I don’t think the argument is valid. After WW II, crazy terrorists weren’t running through the streets firing 1903 bolt action Springfields into the air.

No Arab terrorists were on the daily newscasts blasting people with the semi-automatic Garand after WW II.

It’s the AK-47 and its long history with revolution, riots and terrorism that’s the problem.

The average person in America says why do you need a terrorist’s assault rifle to hunt? Again, the AR-15 is not a terrorist’s weapon. It is not fully automatic. It is not an assault rifle. It just looks like one.

So why endanger our Second Amendment rights by manufacturing and defending a modern hunting rifle that has such an inflammatory design? It plays right into the hands of the anti-gun movement. They love the looks of the AR-15. It’s easy to enrage the average American against such an “assault rifle.”

Let’s get wise. We have a difficult enough task defending our right to own firearms without this foolish battle.

Comrade Castro with a....ut oh.... sniper...er...  bolt action hunting rifle designed only to kill innocent deer from long cowardly distances



Comrade Fidel once again with a.....bolt action United States Rifle Model of 1917... the obvious choice of terrorists.



Somebody better not tell the intelligent and informed Reverend-Columnist that these are
1903 Springfields and M1 Garands in Cuba in 1959 (is that post-WW2?)



American government terrorists armed with M1 Garands and they ain't firing them into the air, are they Reverend?
Kent State 1970 killing unarmed innocent Americans.



She's probably saying: "If we all had AR15 rifles this wouldn't have happened".

I could never figure out the pistol grip= bad gun. It's ergonomics folks. Look at computer keyboards and Your mouse. I bet some of You don't have the old flat rectangular key boards with a plain old mouse. Even hammer handles, axe handles, scissors etc, have got more comfortable grips over the years. But guns can't  improve ergonomicly?

Yup; let's give up production of what even the writer of that asinine article admits is the most popular, useful, rifle ever made and as such, qualifies as a "common usage" firearm under the SCOTUS Heller Decision.

Only because it's looks are "inflammatory".

That'll help preserve our rights.

His article does more good for Ar15 than harm. When you get done, the only thing he has done is say that it doesnt look like a normal hunting rifle, even though it functions the same and is light, rugged, accurate. Throughout the article he refers to it as a modern sporting rifle.

What does it have going for it

3 its not an assault rifle

Be very suspicious of anybody that uses the word 'but' after they describe themselves. Because it's usually followed by a statement that totally contradicts the previous statement and then a bullshit attempt at justifying it.

"I want big government out of my life......but"
"I love freedom......but"
