You do realize by your use of “semi auto” your referring to more than 80% of guns made today correct? And who determines that these guns was not intended for civilians? I’m a veteran I can’t fix stupid but it’s gonna hurt. fully automatic weapons are already illegal unless you have a special license to have one. Thus most likely if you have one statistically speaking your illegally in possession of it.

The AR-15 has been sold to the public since the 1960s. To say that civilians were never intended to have weapons based on this design is 100% false. They’ve been available to us from the beginning. it’s a semi-automatic auto rifle which shoots a single bullet per trigger pull like all other semi-automatic rifles. But unlike my other rifles, I can easily break down, clean, and repair my AR. I’m a veteran I can’t fix stupid but it’s gonna hurt. The AR 15 was designed as a semi-auto rifle. The M 14 was a select fire weapon, so it could not have been designed to replace the M 14. The platform was changed to select fire by Colt and then replaced the M 14. The semi-auto versions of this weapon are not assaulted wespons. Further, you are incorrect that civilians ‘don’t need and were never intended to have’ this weapon. The semi-automatic AR-15 was specifically designed by Colt for civilians. Over twelve million of them are in lawful use by civilians for such purposes as hunting, varmint control, sports shooting, and defense.
Have a good day!
Also I highly doubt you even used your m16 in combat. Most of us who have used our M4s in combat would tell you that the stopping power isn’t as good as the rounds coming at us. The Second Amendment doesn’t have a ‘needs’ test. The founders already decided that firearms were needed. The Supreme Court affirmed the right for them to owned and allowed that this right was not just one given by the Constitution, but a natural right.
