    In recent years, the usage of AR-15 has been on the rise, and nothing is stopping it at all. In general, AR means “Armalite Rifle.” It is not an Assault Rifle, as you think. Yes, this is a famous misunderstanding. Initially, the rifle was made by Armalite. But as Financial troubles started to emerge, the company was forced to sell their rights to Colt. Now Colt has been making these semi-automatic rifles in vast numbers. However, AR Gun Builders seem to create customized versions, which get recognized in the end.

    Hmmm, okay, your infinite wisdom underwhelms me. Never considered an AR an assault weapon, and I am actually a bit insulted that you might imply I do, or that others here do. But seeing you are new, I give you the benefit of doubt.

    An assault weapon (M-16) is a select fire model, meaning it is capable of sustaining 3 round bursts, automatic fire or both... An AR-15 does not,,,

    Here is my question. Why would anyone join so many forums posting the very same thing? This is a small sample of what I’ve found. Copy and paste the text in google and you will see.
    Somethings not right here?

    At least it’s the same name. More show up in google search but appear to have been deleted in their respective forums?

    When he had his "hello" thread I forwarded it to Admin.
    The combination of a stock pic with a user name and intro that is suggestive of real naming was in itself sufficient t be supicious.

    Maybe the left getting creative trying to build up forum disrupting bots (or real folks)
