and the Swiss Army knife (as the name suggests was developed for the Swiss Army) but then found so useful and versatile that it came into wide use by civilians. And guess what, it's military origin does not make it evil.Non shooters may not known that the A15 type of rifle is modular, multiple variations are possible without any special skills. It is nearly unique in that regard. Also nearly unique in being as accurate a most bolt actions.The AR-15 platform is the highest selling rifle type in the US. Thus by definition it is in common use. And as everybody but Lefties know, the civilian version is not fully automatic and thus differs substantially from the military version, and thereby also by definition is not a military assault weapon. All of which are fully automatic. The semi automatic version of the MI carbine (around since the 1940's) has never stirred up such idiotic hatred but is functionally the same as the civilian AR 15, It just does not look "evil" The facts can not be argued. Civilian AR 15 are in wide use. While a disproportionate number of mass terrorist murders (only if you do not count 9/11 and Oklahoma type events) are committed with ar 15 and AK type weapons, the total people killed with AR 15 rifle is minuscule compared to other shootings. And for those Lefties who think guns are needed for mass murder see Rwanda where it was done by machete https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-26875506 800,000 people.In the department of bogus statistics is this one". In 2017, 46% of all murders were committed with handguns, federal data show." True. But only because in many (most?) cases local police reports to FBI did not specify what kind of weapon was used in the murder.
