Left Lie #1 AR=Assault Rifle

Left Lie #1 AR=Assault Rifle

We often hear from the left that AR = “Assault Rifle” which is a total lie.  The AR acronym stands for ArmaLite Rifle who originally developed an entire series of AR rifles ranging from bolt action rifles to semiautomatic shotguns for the civilian market. The military followed a similar strategy as they do today which is to evaluate civilian firearms models for adaptation for military use. The US military did adopt several military adapted versions of ArmaLite AR rifles including their superlight bolt action survival rifle, another lightweight bolt action rifle, several semi-automatic rifles with designs adapted to allow for use as machine guns/fully automatic/select-fire.

The main draw was that ArmaLite's AR designs were extremely light and comfortable due to it leveraging its capabilities as part of the Fairchild Engine and Airplane Corporation who was experimenting with then new lightweight materials and manufacturing processes. ArmaLite was using carbon-fiber, fiberglas, polymers, special metals, aluminum and very new manufacturing and milling techniques which had just become recently invented/introduced. AR does not stand for Assault Rifle and use as such does constitute both misuse, rebranding and defamation of the AR trademark and brand.

Don’t believe the lie that AR stands for Assault Rifle. Share this article to share the truth.
