Don't say you own an AR or AK because those are assault weapons and they are bad!
There is no factual basis for that line of thinking. The founding fathers were talking about weapons that would be able to resist or overthrow tyranny. They were referring to modern military arms. Recent Supreme Court rulings have confirmed that the right to have arms is an individual right. Especially the most popular firearms in wide distribution. The left continues to wrongly believe that only "sporting guns" should be in the hands of citizens, but nowhere was that thought on the minds of the founding fathers.
