    Never mind the fact it wasn't a combat rifle turned into a sporting rifle, but a sporting rifle turned into a combat rifle nearly a decade before the Army adopted it.

    So glad I don't pay money to see that kind of garbage. Like Katie Couric, he is another formerly high-profile personality fighting to remain somehow relevant in this world. Really pretty sad.

    Love how "military" rifles sold to the public sounds so new and frightening to these people. They obviously never heard of CMP....a .gov program selling military arms to civilians for ages.

    Funny thing about this is that the AR-15 would not be near as popular without these gun prohibitionist hit pieces and political attacks. Best thing about Americans is they like to do the opposite of what the rulers want.

    You got that right Paul. Never had a real interest in AR's until the Oregon legislature started murmuring about banning them... Now I'm a full fledged fan.

    You can make the same correlation with high powered domestic cars and track only race cars.
    Both can kill you if driven with recklessness, but that doesn't stop the sale of 400 hp plus automobiles to anybody with a down payment.

    Ironically, an organization taking over the military role created during Slick Willy's admin if I remember correctly.

    The media is going all out to attack guns.

    "Gunned Down", from the PBS news magazine Frontline is pretty bad too. It mainly focuses on blaming the NRA for America's lax gun laws.

    PBS has the full show available to view on their website:
