    There’s no reason to ban ‘assault’ rifles  

    By Andrew L. Jaffee, netwmd.com

    … For the purpose of this article, we’ll focus on AR-15s since it is what CBS calls “the most popular rifle in America” and one often designated an “assault” rifle. An AR-15 is the civilian equivalent to the military’s M-16. So what’s the difference?
