What can an AR-15 do to the human body? A trauma surgeon explains.

Speaking of price, what price will we continue to pay for assault rifles being easily available to almost anyone.
We know we have been dealing with tragedy from mass shootings and gun violence and one of the weapon of choice for some of these shooters have been assault rifles, more specifically the AR-15, a military style weapon that can fire at least 30 rounds.
Well one trauma surgeon broke down what these weapons actually do to the human body. Saying that injuries from this type of weapon are “almost unsurvivable, essentially,” because of the significant damage the bullets cause to the victims.
In comparing the damage from being shot by a handgun versus an assault rifle, she said “When you see handguns, you often just see a little hole on the outside on both sides; shotguns, which are a little bit higher velocity, a little bit bigger. But assault weapons, it’s much bigger,” she said, adding that as a bullet from this type of weapon penetrates the body, it typically creates a large cavity that can cause significant bleeding from vessels and completely destroy soft tissue, as well as organs.
“The organs, for example, like the liver or the spleen, that aren’t very elastic, they can’t handle that. They would basically rupture.”
She added that the reason the AR-15 is so deadly is that victims are hit by more than one bullet, with multiple injuries at a time.
Still don’t understand why weapons like this are available for anybody outside of the military.
