Define "look military".

Is this rifle "military looking"?



How about this one?



Or this one?



All of the above are military rifles, as opposed to my non-automatic Rock River AR (a configuration that to my knowledge has never been issued by any military on this planet).

Honestly, I believe a lot of people confuse "looks military" with "looks modern", and would probably consider a Tubb 2000 or a Remington R25 to be more military-looking than a Remington M700, Mossberg 500, or Colt M1911.

But given that rifles are the least misused of all weapons in the United States (not only accounting for fewer murders than handguns and shotguns, but fewer than knives, clubs, and shoes/bare hands), the push for rifle bans made no sense in the '80s-'90s and makes far less sense now, IMO.
