Quick point (0.00 / 0)
Not endorsing the Cruz antics but I think he is making the same point you are.  Both weapons are functionally the same.  They are semi-automatic, centerfire rifles with detachable magazines.

Both can be fired rapidly.

Both can accept 10 round magazines.

The only difference between the Remington and the AR-15 is that the Remington fires much more powerful ammunition.

The distinction he is making is the absurdity in the Feinstein bill that would ban the less-powerful AR-15 SOLELY because of the plastic grip, while the Remington would be completely legal.

Oh and it's brown.

The grip is the ONLY difference between the two, and all else being equal the Remington is a much more powerful and dangerous weapon in the hands of a criminal.
