    Well that's good. Now if we could just get you to understand that an AR15 is NOT an assault weapon we could move on.

    Your intent should be to stop the threat. Your intent should NOT be to kill anyone. There is a difference.

    Man, this needs to be repeated ad infinitude! The anti-gun crowd LOVES to paint gun owners as hell bent for leather but that is rarely the case!

    Heres what you do. You say "Damn I sure am glad that family owned an AR15 and trained their kids. I think the AR15 is a GREAT home defense weapon!"

    That might be your intent. If someone breaks into my house my intent would be to kill them. In my opinion a shot gun is the better weapon to use, it covers a wider area, you can remove the plug and put 5 to 7 shells in it, it can be sawed off to make it more maneuverable in the confines of a house, the rounds won't go thru the wall into your neighbors house. I can understand the kid using what he had. IMO a shot gun would be a better choice.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Why would you not use an AR-15 for home defense? Who cares if the kid could of used less. If you are facing an home invasion you want to give yourself the best shot possible to stop the invasion and get out alive. Why you not pick the best weapon available?

    One might ask why you would want to kill someone as opposed to stopping them from harming you and yours, but I'm fairly certain that you are not given to philosophy at any level...ahem. You seem to be the kind of person most gun owners want to avoid being associated with, if you are old enough to own a gun. Your attitude does not represent responsible gun ownership. I'm guessing you have little or likely no formal firearms training. Might I suggest you get some formal training?

    If they have a knife, I want a gun. If they have a gun I want a rifle. If they have rifles I want as much ammunition as possible to hold them off until more good men with guns, preferably the police, show up.

    Perhaps (not speaking FOR him) in this day where prisons have a revolving door he might be concerned that the perpetrators might get out in 1-3 years and come back looking for revenge. OR...perhaps it is because in this lawsuit happy country with some extraordinarily ****ed up values he might be concerned that the perpetrators might fall a lawsuit against the homeowners...and win.

    BTW...the police dont train to shoot to would...they train to shoot to STOP...whether that be incapacitation or dead. NO ONE trains to wound or incapacitate. For my money...'stopped' is good enough. Ive dealt with the aftermath before. Wouldnt wish it on anyone.
