Most popular rifle in America. I can guarantee there are far, far, far more than 1,000,000 in private hands.

I don't have one. I have one of these (and a few others):

Federal appeals court says states can restrict open carry of firearms

Hawaii’s law specifically bans residents from openly carrying firearms if they don’t have a license to do so. Licenses are given only to residents who can prove they need a firearm because of “reason to fear injury” to “person or property.”

Bybee wrote that “the contours of the government’s power to regulate arms in the public square is at least this: the government may regulate, and even prohibit, in public places—including government buildings, churches, schools, and markets—the open carrying of small arms capable of being concealed, whether they are carried concealed or openly.”

Some goon managed to get through a US supermarket into its loo carrying two long guns. He was apparently loading them and the four pistols he also carried when somebody came into the loo and heard him. So it goes.

'An Instacart shopper believed he heard someone loading guns in a bathroom stall. Police arrested a man with 6 guns'
An Instacart shopper who entered an Atlanta supermarket bathroom this week told police he saw an AR-15 style rifle and heard what he believed was the sound of someone loading guns in a bathroom stall.

The witness rushed out of the bathroom and notified staff at the Publix Supermarket. When police arrived soon after, they arrested a suspect as he was exiting the bathroom -- with six guns in his possession.

...

By the time the officer arrived at Atlantic Station -- a commercial and residential complex in Atlanta just north of downtown -- the supermarket appeared to have been evacuated, the report says.

The officer wrote that he donned a ballistic helmet and took his city-issued rifle into the store, where he immediately saw the suspect coming around the corner from the restroom, just feet away. The officer ordered the suspect to put his hands up and not move, the incident report says.

"The accused appeared to be surprised when he saw us that close to him," the officer wrote. [The wannebe shooter] was detained without incident, the report says.

What is the purpose of carrying them in unloaded? Was he afraid of shooting himself in the foot or testicles?

Part of being a responsible gun owner is placing a high priority on gun safety. :?

Shooter wannabe: they'll get you for marijuana

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa gun store refused to sell a semi-automatic rifle to a heavily armed and agitated Colorado man after he said he was surprised his friends didn’t suspect he was the Boulder mass shooter, according to federal court documents released Friday.

The Nebraska State Patrol initially arrested the self-described firearms enthusiast, Adam Vannoy, 40, on March 14 on Interstate 80 in Lancaster County. Another driver had called police to report he was driving recklessly at about 120 mph.

During a search of his packed truck, troopers seized a handgun from Vannoy’s jacket, a loaded AR-style semi-automatic rifle with an illegal silencer, four other firearms, ammunition, a bulletproof blanket and vest, two brown wigs and an Air Force costume. They also found marijuana.
Snip

In addition to denying the sale, the store notified the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives about his comments. Agents arrested Vannoy in Iowa this week on a new federal charge stemming from the Nebraska traffic stop, illegal possession of a firearm as an unlawful user of marijuana.

An interesting video about American cities.



Just another thought jerking video. The guy who makes them is a Canadian city planner living in Amsterdam.
