But perhaps someone with better knowledge here can double check this.


M16 and M16A1 had safe, semi and auto modes.

M16A2 and M4A1 have safe, semi and burst modes.

M16A4 just adds the removable carrying handle and Picatinny system like the M4A1, but also has safe, semi and burst modes.

There’s no need to waste taxpayer money on such a study as the FBI already tracks this information. In 2011, there were 12,664 people slain in the United States. The top weapons of choice were: handguns (6,620), knives (1,694) and fists or feet (728). Although the White House wants to ban rifles with certain “military-style” features, rifles of every type were used in just 323 homicides.

This needs to be shouted from the rooftops every time they mention the AWB.
