I use a bolt action .223 for deer hunting, who are you to tell me that I don't need that rifle.

Most AR-s are stamped either chambered .223 or 5.56 and can fire be fired in either weapon.

you can fire a .223 through a m-16 but it is not safe to fire a 5.56 through a standard .223 chambered rifle. there is a 20,000 psi difference between the two. while the actual dimension of the casings are the same the caliper of the bullet is different, .224 to be exact. They are NOT the same.

AR-15 is a little more than a "cosmetic" military weapon. it's a semi-automatic rifle with high capacity clip, the kind of assault weapon that was banned in 1994 until the ban expired in 2004. the kind of weapon nobody needs for hunting or home protection. the only use for such a weapon is mass slaughter period.


AR-15's do not use clips, so I have no idea what you are talking about. The banned "assault" weapons were just dressed civilian rifles. I really wish people knew what they are taling about, instead of just regurgitating what the media says.

Now if you are talking about the magazine, well that is something different. Not all magazines are high capacity.

Didn't say it was a good idea to use the Nato in a .223, however some AR-15s are stamped and chambered for .223 and some are chambered for 5.56!

Yeh, my bad. California already has a Ban on Hi Capacity "Magazines" and is a Federal offense.

When they outlawed the magazines in CA, I think ones already made or bought, were grandfathered in, so those are legal. I could be wrong.

Responsible gun owners in (California) should use no more than a 10 round “clip” or “magazine “It’s the law. Whether “high capacity” magazines that were bought before the ban are legal, I don’t know. It would be very difficult to prove when it was bought, not a chance worth taking in my eyes.

Timothy McVay didn't use a gun but managed to kill more men, women and children that lives were taken in Connecticut by far. Yet, we can still purchase fertilizer, petroleum products and rent trucks.

Knee jerk reactions to tragedies are never good solutions.
