It is both legal...and lethal. The AR-15 is seven pounds of steel and plastic that can fire a bullet at roughly three thousand feet per second. To some, it's a brilliant piece of engineering and a symbol of one of America's most basic freedoms. To others, the AR-15 is an obscenity, an assault weapon with no justifiable place in civilian hands. And to both sides, the rifle used in the Newtown and Aurora shootings has become a lightning rod in a wrenching debate over what a gun like this is for and whether anyone should have one. CNBC's Brian Sullivan examines the controversy and the rise of the AR-15, the rock star of America's gun industry.

"America's Gun: The Rise of the AR-15" Thursday April 25th 10p ET/PT on CNBC.
