Bans wanted only on weapons of war

I was totally dismayed by a letter from Randy Harris of Campton Hills who strives for accuracy when describing the AR-15. Yes, we should be fair to this lethal, human rifle (as opposed to a “deer rifle” since politicians refer incorrectly to it as an “assault rifle” or “weapon of war,” and we just can’t have that since it’s actually a “modern sporting rifle!”

How sporting was the chance that the seven victims received in Highland Park? Or the 19 children in Uvalde, Texas, who were slaughtered within seconds by this “modern, sporting” killing machine? No matter what you call it, accurately or not, the AR-15 is a menace to society and should be banned from sale and possession.

Existing models should be given up voluntarily and then the rest confiscated. We cannot risk the safety of locking up these despicable tools of mass murder lest a deranged individual breaks in and steals one for insane, deadly reasons.

I grew up in Texas hunting squirrels and jack rabbits with shotguns and 22s. That’s sporting.

All models of the AR-15 and other similar guns and their large magazines of death should be outlawed.
