    AR-15 Saves Tampa Couple in Armed Home Invasion

    Seems to suggest the ar was responsible for saving the couple. If that is in fact true, the ar saved a Tampa couple, don't be surprised when the anti's claim the ar killed somebody.

    The ar is NOT what saved the couple, nor is it responsible for causing deaths. Can't say that inanimate object saved anyone without having to then listen to an anti spout the ar was responsible for murdering someone. That was the point I was making initially. We're quick to jump on the gun saved someone but loath the antis who use the same mentality claiming the ar was responsible for deaths and needs to be removed from society.

    It wasn't the ar that saved the couple, it was the pregnant wife using an inanimate object that saved their lives.

    Yep. I'm being serious, too! It really IS a good reason to have one.

    My only AR15 is my "precision" rig, designed to be shot prone. But, at least I can say I have an AR15. But, my SCAR-16 and FS2000 are pretty nifty 5.56 / .223 rifles, too. And, they look plenty "scary" to the snowflakes, which is a bonus.

    I keep an AR with an Aimpoint pro for yotes, nefarious trespassers, and so my new neighbor can learn some long gun shooting. And my boy likes it with the .22 conversion kit. Other than that, it's a poodle shooter, just like in the Corps. Real serious work calls for the bolt rifle in .308/7.62

    Personally, I'd prefer my G19 with a couple spare mags of Federal Premium HST 147gr for most home defense situations. But that may not be ideal for everyone. Seems the AR worked for her. Although WE all know it wasn't the AR alone that saved or killed anyone, rather, (that tool) was likely among the single biggest factors in whether they lived or died. IMHO.

    I do not think it matters what gun a person has in the house for self defense. What matters is that the gun is loaded and handy to retrieve if needed in a hurry. The most important thing with having the gun is to learn how to shoot it and not to hesitate using it if you think your life is in danger.
    A gun in the home is like insurance, It is one of those things you have but hope you never have to use it

    Pregnant mom uses AR-15 to fend off home invasion.

    She shot one of them who died soon thereafter. Hopefully law enforcement will catch the other one and charge him with felony murder.
