The label isn't the deadly part


We must hope that Larry Tradlener will explain in "Part II, Guns and Roses" how the users of the "non-assault rifle (AR-15)" could kill so many people (in Aurora and Newtown) in such a brief time, with a semi-automatic rifle which fires only when the trigger is pulled. A novice using a semi-automatic AR-15 or Mini-14 can unload 20 rounds in less than 10 seconds, and reload another magazine, when handy, within another 3 seconds. They are still, according to the NRA, non-assault rifles.
