Please try to refrain from using opinion and emotion when writing a piece about something that is so near and dear to hearts of many. Your first paragraph alone is overly dramatic and inacurate. You cannot shoot steel targets at trail glades unless your in the 50 not 100 yard range next door that is private for law enforcement or gun clubs. The Ar15 recoil is not explosive nor is it heavy 6-8 lbin any way, this is why 18 year old 100lb women in the military can shoot its near cousin, the M16, with ease. Being an AR15 and other firearms gunsmith myself, your section on the assembly performed by Mr. Corbato was. If you dont know just write that he assembled the varios parts into a rifle. If your gonna quote statistics you need to really break them down. More people are killed by handguns than rifles period. Of all these murders, how many were with stolen guns?
