NBC Nightly on AR-15s
Right here. Must be hard up for "news," since the AR-15 has been on the market for 40 years, and Ed Ezell's book "The Black Rifle" has been out for 14 years.
I have no idea where gun control advocates get the idea (and this is quite frequently claimed) that a pistol grip is meant to make it easier to shoot from the hip (or why shooting a rifle from the hip would be a "military feature."). It's actually just an artifact of moving the butt more into line with the bore, so as to reduce rise from recoil. Move the butt up, and it's no longer feasible to have the handgrip part of it, so it has to be separated.
