    I never said the AR-15 was evil and he could have used another weapon as well. You're a liar, get over it.

    Except the criminal is still alive. A nice 12gauge shot gun loaded with 00buck and there would be a dead criminal.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Good idea. Lists of registered voters are public information, maybe we should post an interactive list of who the Democrats are and where they live. If we cross reference it to CCW permits maybe we can make the world safer for burglars.

    Dead...stopped...no assault on the kid or his sister. Dood did it right. Thank goodness that family owned firearms, trained their kids on the proper use of firearms, and made a wise choice to boot.

    Or perhaps just one more round...

    This would not happen in my house. If an intruder takes a hit he is going to be dead right there. Second chances are for people who deserve them.

    A wounded man can heal and come back at you, a dead man is just dead.

    Also, I'm not arguing that the weapon SHOULDN'T be allowed, I'm only pointing out that in this case other lesser fire arms could have been used while others are claiming ONLY the AR-15 type could have saved them. Your fail, not mine.
    It is a lot easier to know what might have worked after the fact. I'm thinking that the home invasion, like most home invasions, was a surprise. The brave young man responded with the fire arm that worked for him. We know from the outcome that the AR-15 was an appropriate choice. Prior to the home invasion the kid had no clue that it was going to happen, when it was going to happen, where he would be in the home when it happened, how many people would be involved, how they would be armed and on and on. His attackers had more information than he had.

    After the fact it is much easier to armchair quarterback the event, but the young guy did not have that option that night. It is way simple to say, "He had too much gun" after the fit hit shan, but how does someone know that prior to the incident? Besides maybe the kid had small hands. There are just a lot of reasons why the AR-15 was a better choice BEFORE everything happened.

    As a father and a husband, I want my family to have every advantage if something similar were to occur. IMHO, what most people here are saying is that while the AR-15 isn't the only gun that would have done the job, it would be among the first choices of available guns. Further, there is no question that the AR-15 did not leave the kid at a disadvantage. I don't think many gun owners would like to be without that choice.


    Note to readers: If you live in New York state, home invasions should no longer be a surprise. You should expect them.

    People HAVE been known to miss...even with shotguns. Sounds like the young man did the job right. I'll stick with the knowns. Perps down, kids safe....this is a win all around.
