No self-respecting gun owner would ever call his AR-15 an assault rifle, but many who’ve never done their research think the “AR” in “AR-15” stands for “Assault Rifle.” In reality, the initials stand for “Armalite Rifle,” and this modern sporting rifle is just as deadly as a Ruger Mini-14.

By Firefield • March 26, 2021 We don’t know what’s in store for our country, but if you ask certain people, they’ll assure you we’re headed straight for serious disaster. Regardless of what type of disaster is on the horizon, there is no better tool to face impending doom than a firearm. We’ve been using firearms to survive since 1354—in war, for safety and to hunt for food. Owning a gun makes you a better survivor. Guns liberated us.
