"Why do you NEED an AR-15?" Is the expression I hear muttered from most anti-gunners, well
1. The 2nd Amendment of the Bill of Rights "Shall not be infringed" no fine print there, pretty cut and dry, it's my right as an American.
2. Lots of reasons! They are fun to shoot, great for home defense, zombie apocalypse insurance, I mean come on, when that happens tell me you aren't going to scavenging through your friends list looking for those "gun nuts"! You can pretty much call me Rick Grimes and I'll save the I told you so's for later!
Seriously though, does anyone remember that Shooter at the Garden State Plaza a few months ago? As it was breaking news, I'm home on my day off when I get a call from a family member, she is in the mall, hysterical, hiding in the food court. What would you do? Hope for the best? Well, I didn't have an AR-15 at the time, but I do now. Hunting a man armed with an AK-47 with just my Glock 27 and a couple extra mags, not my idea of a good time! The bottom line is, the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. When government passes all these gun laws in the name of public safety, they are actually making it easier for the criminals by effectually disarming the "good guys" meaning the people who actually obey laws ( not the criminals). Here is a recent story about a man who stopped an armed intruder with his evil "Ghost Gun Assault Rifle" and he only fired 1 shot, must be a former Marine! Enjoy....
