I know some hunters. None of them uses an AR-15 for hunting. They might own them but not for hunting.
I'm thinking you are taking a guess at those numbers. Also, take a look at the rate of fire that someone can attain with a revolver , you might be surprised.

You apparently don't know anyone who hunts hogs or coyotes, then. AR-15s are popular for hogs, and excellent for coyote hunting.

We were talking about deer hunting over in the Maryland forum awhile back and I mentioned being required to use a shotgun where the questioner was going to hunt. One of the other regulars said that "No, you hunt deer with a rifle".

That's true in his part of the state but not in mine. He didn't know that there is a large Shotgun Only zone in the state encompassing several Counties.

Same thing as "I know people who hunt and they don't use an AR". He just doesn't know the right people.

The nutjobs and criminals would still have guns! Only the law abiding people would turn them in.. All of the mass shootings are in gun free zones, and it is illegal to have guns there...yet they do. It's illegal to murder, yet they do.

Or you may leave all of the existing so called "evil" features and simply drop the magazine when the 2 receivers are separated. Many have gone this route.

I did not elect to register mine or make the necessary modifications. I simply move them to a free state.

50 times a minute is nothing for a semi-auto of any type. The problem is keeping that on-target at a high rate of fire.

Some states don't allow a .223/5.56mm round for deer hunting. Maybe for varmints. But ARs (both the AR-15 and AR-10) are chambered in many rounds, all the way up to a .50BMG.

I have an idea! These gun crime's seem to be caused by angry people. What if we legalized prostitution? I figure it would be better for such people to turn to a prostitute than a gun. Right?

Or we could make being angry illegal.

So, for those who think a shotgun is not as deadly as a AR-15, load one of these into a drum or clip fed shotgun, I'd rather be shot by a .223!
Here is only 3 of the available exotic rounds available.

Flechette sabot Shotgun Rounds
http://www.sabotdesigns.com/007.html

Dragons Breath Shotgun Shells
12 Gauge Flame Thrower - Dragons Breath - 3 Units Per Package - G12-013

Exotic Shotgun Shells
You have to see this round to appreciate it. A real live .50BMG / M17 Tracer round that has two Sabot sleeves so it comes straight out the end of the barrel. It lights just as soon as it exits the barrel and burns a good, 3-4 seconds. This round has a 400 meter tracer burnout, but you have to aim 30 feet above the target at that range.
