    It's a mis-marked M-16. An AR-15 is the civilian version of an M-16 and is ONLY sold as a semi-automatic rifle. In order to prevent a civilian semi-automatic AR-15 from being readily converted for use with the select fire components a number of features were changed. Parts changed include the lower receiver, bolt carrier, hammer, trigger, disconnector, and safety/mode selector. The semi-automatic bolt carrier has a longer lightening slot to prevent the bolt's engagement with an automatic sear.

    You are gonna need to post those incidents up. I'm pretty sure that's not true.

    Insisting that the AR15 isn't the replica of an M16 removes the only incentive to buy it. Those who do buy it do so because they know it is a (very slightly) different version of the military cousin.
    'Gunners' say that 'guns' are not the problem in America.
    This is true.
    The problem is the sick fascination with violence. That, connected to firearms, is the tremendous hazard. The AR is a good example of this. It is totally image, not function. It looks "bad". That is an indication that the interest in the firearm is misplaced.

    Lol, you are obviously a sensitive little flower, offended by terms like "idjits" and "dingbats". Also, if you will look, those were retorts to being called things like "shit for brains" which if you are honset you will admit is somewhat more offensive than "dingbat".

    Next nonsense?
