Democrat Ruben Gallego Seeks to Ban Arizonans from Purchasing AR-15s

via FOX 13 Seattle

Senate candidate Ruben Gallego supports banning AR-15 rifles and other assault weapons in Arizona.

As a Marine, he carried an M16 in Iraq, which has a selective fire switch allowing fully automatic bursts, but notes this on his website without explaining how it relates to semiautomatic AR-15s for civilian use.

An M16 is a battlefield rifle, while AR-15s only fire one round per trigger pull.

Gallego cites his M16 experience to argue AR-15s have no place in civilian life.

As a congressman, he backed assault weapons bans, universal background checks, and legislation prohibiting those under 16 from firing AR-15s even at a range with an instructor.

Gallego’s campaign highlights his support for gun control and keeping “weapons of war” from streets, but does not provide details on the specific policies he advocates and how they differentiate military and civilian firearms.
