Automatic weapons have been banned in the United States since the 1930s. The AR-15 is not an automatic weapon. It works like any ordinary rifle. One trigger pull fires one round. It has cosmetic features that make it look like a military weapon but these features do not affect the operation of the rifle. The AR-15 is not a military weapon.
Rifles are rarely used to commit crimes. More people are killed by stab wounds than are killed by rifle wounds.
