Rebuttal to this?
I would argue that an AR-15 is much more lethal then either grenades or a flamethrower. If I have either of those two devices I am limited to inflicting damage to people within about a 40 yard range. With a standard AR-15 my range is greatly increased to over 200 yards. I would argue that an AR-15 is a weapon of mass destruction in a civilian setting. In your opinion what is so recreational about it? The fact that it holds a standard 30 round magazine (that can easily be upgraded) or the fact that it can be easily modified to make it fully automatic?

First, the AR-15 fires a .223 caliber bullet. A very small bullet, fractionally larger than a .22 caliber. Here is a humerous description of what a small caliber bullet does compared to a .45 caliber (which many police officers use).

The AR-15 has many advantages over other rifles, it is lighter, more accurate, and easier to use than other rifles.

As far as lethality, an AR-15 is no more lethal than any other rifle used for hunting or recreational shooting, and less lethal than most.

The AR15 can be lethal. It can fire military graded NATO 5.56mm rounds, and is much more lethal than hunting weapons as it is semi-automatic. I don't understand how this debate is about gun control nevertheless.
