While the NRA made the news rounds this weekend, Brownells, the company that calls itself the world's largest arms supplier, reported it sold three and a half years' worth of AR-15 ammunition magazines in just three days — conveniently, the last few shopping days before Christmas. To be clear, the AR-15 is our fair nation's most popular semi-automatic rifle and was probably on the list of many a gun supporter this year. Unfortunately, it is also similar to the one used in the Newtown shootings. Because guns still aren't the problem, we can all feel extra safe this holiday.
