    I'm assuming they were the 15-22 version of the m&p15. It's my understanding that the .22 caliber can be shipped ground. Assumung it was a small package companies container. But the news doesn't want you to know what caliber. Just that they're "assault rifles". The spin machine media would never leave out any pertinent info would they?

    it's less significant if it's a certain caliber?

    Those big wusses (the liberal media) don't know jack about firearms, never have, never will. To them, all guns are the same.

    The M&P 15 sport is a cheaper model AR15 .223/5.56. Basically they don't come with a forward assist or a cover on the ejection port. Still a very effective rifle and a mean round, just built with out the bells and whistles.

    that's what you focus on? Perceived inaccuracies of the kind of weapon and not that they've gone missing from a UPS facility?

    UPS facility? I thought they said a rail yard?

    My bad. It is a rail yard. The people of Chicago can rest peacefully knowing their high gun violence rate won't go higher because these aren't really assault weapons and the caliber isn't what the media suggested it was.

    Seems to me that 22 (LR) caliber firearms were exempted from certain aspects of the Brady Bill, for one.

    maybe these weapons are only going to "law abiding" citizens.

    They aren't exempted from theft subsequent illegal sale, are they?

    Ah.....An M&P 15 sport is considered an assault weapon. It shoots a .223 or 5.56 round.

    Don't worry if they ban guns they'll have to turn them in anyway.
