Clearly both sides are fear mongering to motivate their followers, but not fear of the same things.

The reason they are going after assault weapons is that there is legal precedent for banning weapons too dangerous for public usage (machine guns used to be legal to own, now are banned). An AR is not a machine gun, but with a 50 round mag, it could be argued it has similar firepower. Whether the argument flies would be decided by the courts.
