To the Editor:
In response to George Cohen and Sky Cole: The muzzle energy of the AR15 is quite low compared to other rifles. It shoots a 223 cartridge that is so low in power Connecticut does not allow it to be used for deer hunting. The state requires 7MM or 243 or larger. So your statement on impact and extreme damage to flesh bone tissue is amazing because the 223 is a NATO-round regulated by the Geneva Convention. Not to mention, the round is one of the mildest in rifle ammo.
