    the difference between an AR15 and an M-16 is miniscule. If you learned to shoot an m-16 in the Army, you also learned how to modify the AR-15. It was part of the training when I was in the Army.

    One is a semi-automatic only rifle. The other is a select-fire battle rifle capable of burst-mode (A2) or fully-automatic fire (A1, M4A1).

    Internally there are major differences: The trigger is different (full-auto has an open channel at the rear). The disconnector is different (M16 part is without the "tail" at the end like on an AR). The hammer is different (the M16 hammer has the hook at the end that gets caught on the full auto sear). The selector switch is different (not the least of which the capability of being able to be rotated in the third, automatic position). The bolt carrier is completely different and the FA bolt is necessary for it to operate in automatic mode. There are others beyond that, but you get the point.

    That is the plan, it is to strip people off of their gun rights, but they do not realise that ,it is not the guns that are bad , it is certain people who misuse the guns.

    Its not going to do anything but screw with people who don't even commit crimes and make innocent people an even bigger target. The criminals will have better guns and more ammo than innocent people and that's all obama is going to pull off.

    They will be taking guns from innocent people who just have them to hunt and protect their family or themselves though. The people are brainwashed and they terrorize theaters to be on the news and feel notorious when its not. They don't realize they're a coward and terrible person for terrorizing innocent people. America should also stop glorifying terrorist like they're notorious, it messes with people's head and makes them want to do it to be talked about on tv. It doesn't have anything to do with people having guns. Criminals will still buy guns in the street. The laws will mostly only mess with people who don't break the law.
