The AR-15 is an affordable and popular gun, and yes, it has been used in mass shootings. However, that particular model, which Sen. Dianne Feinstein still insists on calling an “assault weapon” and a “weapon of war,” really resonates with the gun control crowd. Here’s Feinstein, again:
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested on allegations of domestic violence and "possessing an assault rifle", though what type of rifle Foster actually possessed was not defined.
From Fox News:
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested Sunday on charges of domestic violence, according to reports.
Foster, a 23-year-old first-round pick in last year's NFL draft, was arrested in Los Gatos in Santa Clara County, California, and is currently being held without bail, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
County jail records show the NFL player’s bail has been set at $75,000.
Foster also was arrested on suspicion of possessing an assault rifle, according to the Mercury News.
