We know why.
They are demonized by the left precisely because they are PERFECT for self/home defense, and not crime where they usually are concealed.
-30 round magazines make sure the home owner doesn’t run out of ammo before the adversary does.
-mid caliber rifle gives good firepower relative to handgun while not being too big in close quarters.
-Lots of cheap abundant parts and ammunition.

The gun doomies really are doomed. People will be able to print firearms in their homes in twenty years, maybe less:
I’m betting the murder statistics don’t include battered children deaths.
The number killed with bare hands is way too low.
Of course this is an advocacy site.They claim 5 deaths a day due to abuse.
Non gun mass murders
And a mass murder that didnt happen because the bomb went off ahead of time. BILL AYERS friends.
Ayers then-girlfriend Diana Oughton, along with Weatherman members Terry Robbins and Ted Gold, were killed when a bomb they were constructing exploded unexpectedly. That bomb had been intended for detonation at a dance that was to be attended by hundreds of Army soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Ayers himself attested that the bomb would have done serious damage, tearing through windows and walls and, yes, people too. Notably, Ayers’ fingerprints were found at the bomb-making site, along with an assortment of anti-personnel weapons, stabbing implements, C-4 plastic explosive, and dozens of Marxist-Leninist publications.
Many years ago I read a very astute in-depth analysis of how to avoid becoming a murder victim:
1. Do not have a relationship with an abusive person of either sex.
2. Do not commit crimes or associate with those who do (the great majority of murders are criminals killing rivals and associates).
3. Do not frequent bars which sell beer for $1.
Take away those types of murders and we have a crime rate like Switzerland.

It should be borne in mind that these items are NOT assault rifles - they are civilian copies of the rifles issued to US troops.
The term “assault rifle” used in this context is used to inflame a non-issue.
