After a 19-year-old man used a legally obtained AR-15 rifle to gun down 17 people at a Parkland, Florida high school in February, some have called for increasing the age at which the assault-style weapon can be purchased. Others have called for a ban, since the AR-15, modeled after military rifles, with bullets that cause wounds more traumatic than those from pistols or typical rifles. The AR-15 was used to kill elementary school students at Sandy Hook Elementary, movie theater goers in Aurora, Colorado and nightclub patrons in Orlando, Florida among other mass shootings.
