...listening to NPR today and they were asking people to call in if they had ever had to pull a gun on someone...guy calls in from florida and says he had a crack-head invade his home...he grabs his assualt weapon and points it at the guy, but he keeps coming...turns out he's some kind of martial arts guru and breaks the home owner's nose and takes his rifle away from him...the home owner comes to hearing the clicking of the rifle which is pointed at his face...apparently, the intruder couldn't figure out how to release the safety...they struggle for a while and home owner ends up with the rifle...three rounds to the belly and one to the head later and the intruder ain't no more......home owner claims he would be dead if he was defending himself with a pistol or shotgun...really?...not completely buying that one...
I can understand that you guys want gun ownership and it's in your constitutional right etc. But wasn't the right to bear arms a safeguard against those damned handsome British coming back? It was also written before assault rifles etc were even a twinkle in mankind's eye and you managed okay. I don't see why so many people are hung up on the idea that gun ownership means they must have an M16 or similar. Where does it end? I need a 40GW phase plasma rifle qnd a howitzer to defend my property.
You guys is not intended to reference any individuals, just the American people as a single simplified entity.
Any body who has been to Florida knows that the damned Redcoats would invade at the drop of a hat! But we'll be ready for them this time!
Part of the reason people like the AR15 is that it's a light weight , all purpose , easy to comvert gun. The same reason that our armed forces use it (that is women, or small framed men can use it. It shoots a glorified 22 cal round.). It's actually not legal in most states for deer hunting because the round is so light. So here it's used for "varmits", pests that range the gamit from praire dogs to coyotes. It can be easily modified to carry a 22 round for training, or a 7.62 for serious stopping power. It's collapsable stock can fit a small framed person (like my spouse) or a bigger guy like myself. A lot of people just can't afford a bunch of weapons , and this one can do most function adequetly.
It's really the modern equivalent to the rifled musket over the fireplace.
Personally , I'm old school , I love my M-1 Garand (WW2 USA issue). A much heavier, longer ranged peice.
