The articles that even mention it all cal it an AR-15. I thought the Military all carried M-16s. Big difference.
Ear witnesses reported hearing sets of 3 shots in a row “pow, pow,pow”, that sounds like a three round burst fired from an M16A2. Bottom line is the guy liberated the weapon from security guard or a cop using a shotgun. Are they gonna ban shotguns now? or just ban M16s in the hands of cops, security agents, and soldiers?
Yes, but they look very similar. From a distance, only an expert can tell them apart. I certainly could not.
