This one opens with one of the most deeply satisfying lines you’ll ever read.
Beto O’Rourke will never get the chance to take away the AR-15 kept in the home of Jeremy King of Lithia, Florida.
Or anybody else’s. The piece continues to recount the story of the King family’s ordeal with a couple of home-invader goblins; thanks to the intrepid, gutsy Mrs King, the family was saved from disaster by her handiness with the family AR. Thankfully, all’s well that ends well:
Police later found one of the assailants dead in a nearby ditch. This is just one of the many cases that happen every day of armed citizens saving lives with firearms, unheralded by the media.
The response time for a bullet from an AR-15 fired in self-defense is a lot quicker than calling 911. Other non-scary weapons are just as lethal and the AR-15 has been chosen by popular demand as the defensive weapon of choice.
Critics of the Second Amendment say that they are not going after guns used for legitimate activities such as hunting. But when the Founders wrote the Second Amendment it was because the British were coming, not because it was the start of deer season.
Damned skippy. Read the rest for more heartwarming stories of ordinary people protecting themselves, their families, and their neighbors from vicious predators with The People’s Choice For Self Defense: the venerable AR15. As Sobieski flatly states: it’s what the Second Amendment is all about.
