In their Morning Edition report on Monday, National Public Radio (NPR) took an in-depth look at the AR-15, while interviewing people who own the rifle and gun shop workers who sell it:

“‘You know, they picture you as some kind of militant freak. And that’s not me,’ says Mike Collins, who owns more than a dozen military-style rifles with his wife.

‘I spent 27 years in the military,’ he says. ‘I defended this country all over the world. I’ve been in multiple combat tours. I’m not a nut. I’m not a crazy guy. I’m just a normal person who enjoys shooting.'”
