the title said so. It is an AR style as designed by Eugene Stoner, but I doubt it was made by Bushmaster. Most likely it was made by Colt or Armalite. Bushmaster just happens to be the name of the manufacture of the gun used in Newtown. It could have been just as easily been made by Rock River or Olympic Arms.
Costa Rica has a higher murder rate than we do. In fact, it is twice our murder rate.
As I showed you from a Canadian gun dealer's website, you are wrong. Another "assault style" rifle is a semi auto of the Isreali Tabor. All of the ones exported for civilian sales went to Canada. Some are restricted and some are not. Few are prohibited.

I
'd have to double check, but I'm reasonably sure that most of the EU countries have either outright bans on assault style weapons in the hands of civilians, or very strict regulation that limits those to very few people.
No they don't. The EU regulations are mostly age requirements and central registration. Germany might, they do allow semi autos that are not so cosmetically challenged.

I suggest you cite your sources and double check those. Just because some blogger claims something doesn't make it so. It seems your sources are questionable at best.

We're not France, they use different monitoring devices in crime prevention and they have a much denser population distribution in their country than we tend to do here. While there are jerry-rigged silencers they don't work as well or for as long as commercially made ones, and that still doesn't address the legitimate opposition by law enforcement for how silencers are used here that reduce effective crime reduction.
silencers don't work the way they do in the movies. How do you come to this conclusion since you seem to lack even basic knowledge of firearms or firearms laws. Using your logic, we don't live in the EU or Australia either so why should we adopt restrictive laws similar to theirs. Until 1993 Tasmania allowed private ownership of machine guns. How many crimes were committed with legal machine guns?
