I never discounted what the ruling allowed,but you are taking one snippet of the ruling and acting as if it's all there is in the ruling.
What about ARs makes you defecate your shorts besides media hype? ARs are not machine guns. Do you know that even when ARs aren't used in killing sprees, the media claims they were? They're still claiming Holmes used one, he did not - he used another rifle of a similar caliber, which is the caliber commonly used for hunting small animals with.
You're so afraid of varmint rifles - which are used in less than 1% of gun murders - that you want to ban them?
