It seems to me that this whole "assault weapon" phobia is generated by folks who have never held a gun. Any semi-auto hunting rifle or carbine is far more dangerous than small calibre armalite firearms. The bullets are bigger, they travel further, and they often tumble in ways sure to inflict maximum damage. I don't know if full-auto is allowed for ARs in Colorado or not, but no one who wants to hit anything uses it anyway...you can pull the trigger almost as fast and with more accuracy using semi-auto. The only thing ARs have that hunting rifles don't (except perhaps the more or less useless capability of full-auto) is that they look scary and all militaryish.
If they try to ban these things in Canada, as our virtue-signalling Liberal government is gabbling about, I have a sneaking suspicion that a lot of gun owners are going to find that they've suddenly been burgled by nefarious gun thieves, and are consequently no longer able to turn in their fire-arms to the authorities. So sorry.
