: Just because it looks scary doesn't mean it is any more dangerous.
Here's the problem: Once you get the general public to realise that, do they conclude the AR-15 is no more dangerous than a hunting rifle and allow them?
Or do they decide hunting rifles are just as dangerous and ban all semi-autos?
Stop blaming politicians. It's the general public you have to convince.
As a firearms owner and shooter, I'm big enough to admit that my attachment to any particular look or style of firearm is just as emotional and irrational as the people who think they're scary.
If everyone can accept that, then perhaps a real dialog about responsibilities, rules, and controls can be had.
