Because they look scary and some people are really stupid. I have a mini-14 "hunting" rifle that shoots 556 (same caliber as AR-15/M16) and I have 40 round mag, and apparently that's fine. But put a tactical stock on it and add a ******* flash hider and it's an "assault weapon". Really??? I'm surprised they don't call swords "assault knives", or rocks "assault pebbles". Just goes to show how dumb people can be. I can't even imagine what it would be like to be that ignorant.

An AR-15 uses a magazine, not a clip.

For the reccord, I agree with you OP. Literally the only reason "assault weapons" have a bad rep is becuse they look like machine guns and have the option of large capacity clips.

On a side note, the AR-15 can be chambered for both the .223 and 5.56 NATO rounds

They want to ban the AR-15 because it is popular and yes because it resembles many military grade weapons. The left side has been attempting to ban certain fire-arms for years and with these new shootings they can scare the soccer moms into thinking these are what soldiers are using to blast towlheads.

I like your post and all but a machine gun is not the same as a shoulder fired fully-automatic. By definition a machine gun takes a team of two or more people to operate.

I think the AR-15 is used as the "example" gun because it is recognizable and people know what it is.

I would go so far as to say that most people who would ban the AR-15 would be in favor of a ban on all semi-automatic weapons, they just don't see the point in listing every single one of them in a comment thread.

No we want the AR-15 to be banned because it can be (and has been) very easily modified into an automatic rifle. If mental cases like the sandy hook shooter can get what they need and figure out how to do it, it just shows how easy it is. Also, the AR-15 is only part of it - the other part is the high cap magazines. Hi cap mags + automatic "assault type" rifle = mass killing. There is no other use
