Default What is the point of owning an AR-15?

PLEASE NOTE: I AM PRO AR-15 AND PRO GUN. I want some reasons, good, why we need AR-15's. I can think of a few with the LA riots and the Korean merchants. I wanted to get a thread here and see your thoughts on why we need them.

True! Today I was speaking with someone and they think that automatics are legal. Now I am going to put this out there: should we be able to own automatic weapons? I think no unless there are EXTREME background and physiological checks. I see nothing wrong at all with semi-autos.

I see nothing wrong with full autos.

Because it is the firearm platform that 95% of all veterans know how to operate...if you get my drift

That does get me thinking that we actually need them to match our military. I can see your point. I have never fired a full auto so I can not really put input in but I have seen them fired and they look very nice!
