Lies Gun Nuts Tell

The AR-15 is Not an Assault Rifle

Gun nuts are all about definitions. The AR-15 is not an assault rifle, they say, because it is semi-automatic while an assault rifle is fully automatic. Semi-automatic means you have to pull the trigger to fire a round. The concept of "semi-automatic" is a lie. The AR-15, and all other "semi-automatics" can easily be fired fully automatic without modifying the weapon using a technique called "bump firing." The lazy lunatic can easily, and legally, buy adapters for the rifle's stock that converts any AR-15 or AK-47 into a fully automatic weapon.

Large Capacity Magazines Aren't Dangerous
Gun nuts will tell you that large capacity magazines are not a problem because reloading is so easy that no lunatic shooter would be slowed by smaller clips. In the next breath they will state that it is essential that 100-round mags are available because it is such a bitch to change clips.

The AR-15 Is a Self-Defense Weapon
Unless you are being attacked by a zombie horde, this is bullshit. The AR-15 is a rapid-fire "kill zone" weapon. This is why it is the weapon of choice for lunatic shooters.

The Red Dawn Fantasy
It doesn't take much digging to find nuts who contend that only untrained civilians armed with automatic weapons and massive mags (and a 12-pack of Bud Lite) are protecting this country from invasion or dictatorship.

The Real Reason
Very few gun nuts are honest enough to admit the only reason they want assault weapons with gigantic mags is because they get off on blowing the fucking shit out of stuff. It's just a form of masturbation.
