Weapons of War
There is no sane reason to own weapons of war for sporting purposes. The AR variants sold to the public *are* weapons of war for all intents and purposes with just one function removed. The Assault Weapons Ban does not describe cosmetic characteristics but actual functionality. They describe weapons that are directly pattered, if not exactly the same, in all respects but one (select fire), of actual weapons of war issued to our troops and used in theaters of war.
Calling an AR variant a "sport rifle" is like calling a F1 race car with street tires a family car. It's still a weapon of war, just like the street-tire-shod F1 race car is *still* a race car.
