Those suggesting the AR-15 was NOT developed as a weapon of war should read up on history. The AR-15 was developed as a military weapon to replace the M-14. Eugene Stoner designed it to be lighter and more lethal than the M-14.— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) March 18, 2019
It was far deadlier than the M-16 used in Vietnam.
As a longtime gun owner and supporter of the Second Amendment, I agreed with the Supreme Court’s "Heller" holding that concluded Americans had the right to keep and bear arms. But that constitutional protection did not, and will not, extend to guns designed as weapons of war.— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) March 18, 2019
Almost every gun we use was developed as a weapon of war. As well as almost all communication equipment, nautical technology, most cold weather gear, and all our nonperishable foods. https://t.co/lm2EJf97oZ— Johnny (Joey) Jones (@Johnny_Joey) March 18, 2019
