Owning an AR-15 is as uniquely American as baseball, apple pie and the Second Amendment. It’s a classic example of American exceptionalism, independence and ingenuity—all the things that make us the land of the free and home of the brave.

You might have said the same thing about the 1903 Springfield or the M1 back in the day.

A few Americans have been accidentally shot and killed with AR-15s. All the rest have been murdered- nearly all unarmed civilians, many of them children. Home of the brave my arse. JayInOz

Owning an AR 15 is uniquely American? Groovy. Imagine an ad for a Somali arms dealer.

Usually AK 47s.

Usually AK 47s.

And their Somali hearts can soar with pride just like an American with an AR.

Ah yes , I was thinking the same thing Paul.
I remember in recruit training , the treatment for recruits who called their rifle a gun.
They had to run around the mess queues , about 3000 men , holding up their rifles with one hand , their groin with the other shouting "This is my rifle , this is my gun This is for shooting , this is for fun".
What hurt most I think was that that put them at the end of the queue , and they would be lucky to get a meal.

This is my tiny, shriveled pecker, which makes my wife laugh.

So I threaten her with my gun. Or rifle. Or whatever.

Americans,
If you feel that you absolutely cannot live without firing one of these weapons, get your fat asses in shape and join the military like I did. #VetsForGunReform #MomsDemand #Everytown

Well , they are right.
There is a place for that sort of weaponry , in the military.
There is no place for it in a civilian population.

NRA pronouncements would be hilarious if they weren't so dangerous.

Yeah, that would be a lie. Here is a sample of what you can buy in Canada. The only exceptional part is the death toll. You'll note the 5 round capacity. . .

If we made a mistake of that nature, we were stood up before the squad and had to shout "Ahoy, ahoy, I"m a titoi boy". That latter word being Maori for a self abuser.

I've seen this with my own eyes. Also seen the same thing but running in circles around the whole unit while they were marching back to the barracks from the shooting ranges. Poor bastards had to cover a lot ground.
