I'm being honest here. What's the thing with [View all]

owning a AR15?
I don't mean it is accurate or well made and that kind of thing. Why do people want a military rifle knockoff? What's the thrill?
Me, I don't want one but it seems many do.
Is your life really going to change that much if you can't have one?
I won't buy you need it for hunting or home protection.
I heard a guy on the Ed show about a couple of hours ago go ape shit over the idea of a new assault weapons ban.
I hope this doesn't turn into an insult fest but I really want to know why people want one.
I am doing this like when I wanted to know who here never used a gun. It helps me form my opinions. That last one taught me that we don't have to be gun experts to have a valid opinion on what gun control measures we should have.
