Ahh, yes I see it now says assault weapon, but I beg to differ that assault weapon is the correct term. What criteria are you using to define an assault weapon and to call an AR-15 an assault weapon?. The AR-15 is a semi-auto rifle, no different than many rifles that have a rather benign look. From what I've seen the AR-15 mistakenly gets the assault rifle moniker is the AR in the firearm's name which stands for Armalite, the company's name, and that it has a military look. In terms of the firearm's function there is nothing really assault about it and it is not a military grade firearm that would be used in any sort of assault. It's important to get these things right if people are to have meaningful discussion, failing to do so simply entrenches people's preconceived biases. IMHO you need to do better and correctly label the firearm.
