Sadly, 99% of them can't explain the difference between an assault weapon and an assault rifle. I'd bet dollars to donuts that 100% of the blubberers here believe the "AR" in AR-15 means assault rifle!
I'm a gun owner. I don't know what "AR" stands for. I never thought it stood for assault rifle. I assumed it had something to do with manufacturing but never really gave a shit. I still don't care what it stands for. I even occasionally use the word "clip" instead of "magazine" because it pisses tightwads off that think that the terms used need to be exact because guns are serious business. (I also use "arrrg" for both "on belay" and "climbing" because it is similarly wrong.)
Since I'm working on weight loss, I'll take the dollars over the doughnuts.
