Can the appearance of a gun lead to violence?
We know that guns don’t kill, people do, any more than cars cause accidents, drivers do. Yet, the AR-15 is the scape goat. Most assume that AR, in AR-15 means “Assault Rifle.” It does NOT. It stands for “Armalite Rifle”–so named for the company that developed the gun. Dave Kistler (“Stand in the Gap Today” co-host) even heard from a friend, who has become a strident anti-gun advocate, say that the mere appearance of the AR-15 (it’s fearsome look) causes its owners to respond in a way that can lead to violence. Is this type of thinking insanity?
