Was checking out the AR-15 wiki page and came across this sentance. "There are no restrictions on the ownership of AR-15 rifles in the United States." I about fell out of my seat I was laughing so hard...

The united states don't restrict them. Some rogue states do.

ppl in glass houses need to check their spelling before laughing at wiki for perceived misinformation.

The United States restricts firearms in general, including AR-15s, to some degree. And the quote does say in the United States, as opposed to by the United States.

I "sentance" you to a sentence.

IMO the sentence is correct, and I bolded the word that makes it correct. To my knowledge there are no restrictions on ownership. There may be restrictions on how you can have your rifle configured, muzzle brake vs flash hider in certain states, bullet button/featureless in California, etc... but there is not a single law in effect anywhere in the US that says "You may not own an AR-15 in any way, shape or form."

Oh really? So they can own AKs, Glocks, Sigs, Berettas, just not AR-15s?

Those groups of people have a blanket ban on firearms in general. Even grandpa's old .22LR squirrel-hunting rifle is off-limits to them. What we're talking about on the Wikipedia page are laws that specifically target AR-15s.

California has two laws currently ON THE BOOKS that both explicitly ban AR-15's.

One bans all Colt AR-15's as listed assault weapons.

The other bans all "AR-15 Series" firearms, but has luckily been overturned by the courts. Still on the books though.

People use wikipedia like its the end all know all for information. That sentence right there is misleading.

Actually, I believe that a few early "AR15" maked rifles were produced in select fire. If I'm right, the USA does, in fact, have restrictions on the ownership for some AR15s.

Of course they are in the NFA registry and there were "restrictions" which you had and have to follow in order to continue to legally own them.;)
