He’s was beaten within an inch of his life by the invaders and she killer at least one of them with that ar-15. She was pregnant and their daughter was in the house. This is why we need to keep the 2nd amendment. There were 3 invaders by the way
@Webbed Foot, the second amendment is fine, and we will always keep it. However, she could have done the same with a pistol or rifle. An assault weapon was not critical, a gun was. No one advocating for gun control is ad advocating to take all guns.
@occasionalmutant, heck, I’d settle for limiting sales so that only the non-clinically-insane can buy them. Call me crazy. No wait, don’t.
@occasionalmutant, but... she did it with a rifle... what is your point?
Edit: assault weapon is a bûllshît made up term. The armed robbers used “assault weapons” because they were assaulting. The mother used a “defense weapon” because she was defending.
Would you change your mind if the article read “she used a .223 rifle”
@occasionalmutant, an assault rifle is not much different than any other rifle. And I doubt she could have dont as well with a gun that limit itself to a smaller magazine capacity. 3 badguys is a lot. I'd want more than 10 bullets. People rarely seem to die after being shot once and they still can hurt ya while shot. Your statement was made out of ignorance what a rifle is.
Assault rifles last year accounted for less than 400 deaths according to the FBI. Handguns account for far, FAR more deaths.
Your statement makes no sense. Even if you warp what I said to make handguns more dangerous.
@occasionalmutant, Dude, there are a lot of people asking to take all the guns. The politicians are just focusing on the AR-15 cause it's the hot issue
@occasionalmutant, she could have. But she could have done it with a crossbow or a baseball bat. Doesnt mean that its optimum.
@CunningLinguist, that’s how it is
@Webbed Foot, folks I’m not trying to spark a debate. There’s already a background check in place and all I’m saying is don’t target some particular gun (the way politians do) when someone defended them self in the way that only some blessed enough to be an American can do
@CunningLinguist, oh wow its almost like thats already the law.
@occasionalmutant, assault weapon is a political term -usually for a rifle with certain cosmetic features. These features don’t make the firearm any more deadly, just easier and safer to use. In California the doj re-defines assault weapon in order to ban any guns with features they don’t want you to have.
@big freedom, "all I know was the story said it looked like an AR-15".
@occasionalmutant, please, define "assault weapon", the semi automatic ones that are legal to have, and how it is different from a "rifle". Because you have to reload it everytime? This isn't 1911.
Heh, get it
@occasionalmutant, dont matyer the weapon gosh darn it. Ppl need training and education. What good if they dont even know how to load it and safelt wield it.
@big freedom, what about trebuche?
@occasionalmutant, studies have proven that this high stress situations, people are far less accurate with a pistol , still not very accurate with standard rifle, and surprisingly accurate when a pistol grip is added to the rifle.
This women might have missed with a pistol endangering her husband and neighbors.
That being said. She should have the gun loaded with frangible bullets to ensure they don't end up in the house next door. They break up on impact.
@occasionalmutant, it's a better gun for a reason. It's better at defending
His face looks like it’s made of crumplezones
@Nosferatu Zodd, probably because he was almost beaten to death
@Nosferatu Zodd, he was pistol whipped in the face multiple times...
@ArchangelForcas, you can make fun if they ain't dead, I'm sure the guy would've chuckled and then groaned cause it hurt his face
@RomeoStealYoGurl, yeah he should be extremely happy he is alive and hiw wife defended them.
It was the babies idea
