Over the past few years there have been relentless attacks from the Main Stream Media (MSM) against civilian ownership of the AR-15 rifle.
Even with the MSM bashing the weapon, there is no denying its effectiveness to defend people and possibly save lives rather than take them.
In late March, a firearms instructor from Illinois was getting ready for work as he heard screams inside his apartment building.
From the site Bearing Arms:
“Thomas, a gun instructor, peeked out the door and saw blood in the hallway. He went to his bedroom, where a handgun and an AR-15 assault-style rifle were lying on the bed. He picked up the rifle.
Police said Thomas confronted a man who was stabbing another man in the apartment complex on the 100 block of Harbor Drive. The man with the knife ran off when Thomas threatened to shoot him.”
Thomas was even commended by the local law enforcement on how he handled the situation and prevented further harm or loss of life.
While the MSM will never run a story like this, it goes to show how the AR-15 can be a lifesaver instead.
As the 2018 midterm elections inch closer, its very important for Second Amendment supporters to identify and back Pro-Second Amendment candidates.
