Mass shooting not a gun’s intention

I’m a semi automatic rifle and because of that I’m referred to as an assault weapon by people who really know nothing about guns.

There are all kinds of guns related to me.

My cousins, referred to as automatic hand guns, are really only semi-automatic firearms.

I was designed to protect, to be used for plinking, and sometimes to hunt food.

Then something happened, something we were not intended to be used for.

We guns were quite comfortable, resting where we were, when all of a sudden these crazy guys roughly grabbed us shoved loaded magazines into us, there was nothing we could do they forced us to hurt and kill people.

All we wanted to do is protect, plink or bring home food.

Not our fault: It was the crazy people who used us to do it.

I’m sorry...

GOD Bless America
