A little history lesson with a bit of devil’s advocate.

After the war was over Washington abolished his army. This is what made him a great leader he could have kept his army and became king or what ever. When this happened Jefferson wrote the second amendment to arm a militia of the people since there was no defense at all. NOW when war became evident and armies were reestablished would Jefferson have abolished the second amendment. also with each state establishing a state militia ( National Guard ) do we need a civilian armed militia.

I support the right to bear arms beyond no doubt but i do feel we have gone over the line. The AR-15 by definition is not really a assault rifle but now we add a folding removable stock pistol grip and big clip. This makes the gun mimic a URBAN ASSULT RIFLE.

I must say i am tiered of my fellow gun advocates saying its not auto so its not a assault rifle. NO real assault trained man uses full auto in a attack situation. 3 shot bursts at most.

If you want to protect your family with a fire arm train them to use a ( i use this term loosely) a assault style shotgun ) 3 in. magnum 18in barrel folding stock and pistol grip and add a light for night time. 1500 dollar investment that will do the job better then any pistol or AR-15. You or any family member just has to point NOT AIM in a general direction and fire. If i was invading your house and your wife had a pistol i may take my chances she is to nervous to aim but the shotgun i am exiting quickly.
