    I fail to see why.

    Explain to me what is the difference between the AR and say mini ranch rifle both are semi both shoot 223, does the plastic make the gun more deadly?

    If I take my SKS and replace the wooden stock with a military stock has the gun become more dangerous?

    Well,that's one way to keep AR platform rifles out of the hands of those that shouldn't have them........stop selling them. What about the 5 million already in circulation,though? This is more of a corporate PR move by getting out in front of the coming shyte storm,but, at least,it's someone doing something as opposed to everyone doing nothing.

    Maybe what is dangerous, is in the mind set of someone who wants the most dangerous looking gun, even though they all can kill. The better question would be , why do people want that particular gun, if they all kill equally? Sorry but take out the number one reason given, because I want one, , look deep within yourself and answer honestly, what is the real reason?

    A pistol grip is more ergonomic than a conventional grip.

    I'm sure you have your own answer to that other than the stock one we hear all the time of "I need it for home security" which to me is ridiculous,but,then again,I don't live in America where armed intruders enter dwellings at all hours of the day and night to rob,rape and murder. Man,what a way to live.

    Because it was a military rifle and was used in Vietnam. They all presume if it was good enough for the military you gotta have it. It was primarily used as a casualty producing weapon versus a killing weapon but would do both depending on where you were hit. With the 7.62 MR14 if you were hit in the shoulder the projectile would pass right through and that person could get back to a safe area on his own. With the AR15 if a person was hit in the shoulder the projectile would rotate, twist and turn and tear the shoulder right off needing two people to get that person to a medic...thus taking two additional people off of the front line... Plus the ammo didn't weigh as much, meaning you could carry more. Nothing more than a me too weapon for those that gotta have one.

    They want it because it looks meaner and deadlier, than other guns, even though all guns kill. They want to be the bad, meanest looking dude on the range.

    nothing but a PR stunt to try and increase sales from left leaning people who don't shop there anyways, dicks will be bankrupt in a few years regardless, they should stick to selling tennis shoes...

    I see Norway has decided to bad semi's by 2021...better not let the Liberals see them doing that, or guys will have to learn to use bolt actions again

    Already known for its tough gun control laws, Norway is reportedly taking steps to further tighten its firearm legislation. Quoting a Norwegian lawmaker, AFP reported Tuesday that the Scandinavian nation is planning to ban semi-automatic weapons by 2021 — a year that also marks the 10-year anniversary of the 2011 mass shooting on Norway’s Utoya island.

    Peter Frolich, a member of parliament who sits on the judicial affairs committee, told AFP that “it has become clear that there is a parliamentary majority in favor of” the ban, which was first proposed last year by the country’s minority right-wing government.

    “Semi-automatic weapons will therefore be banned in Norway,” Frolich said. AFP noted that the law would go into effect in 2021.
