I would like to point out an excellent article entitled “Here’s Why Someone Would Need To Own An ‘Assault’ Rifle.” A couple of noteworthy quotes:
The left keeps asking why anyone needs an “assault” rifle. Here’s one reason — in 2010, a Texas teen used a rifle similar to the one used in Newtown to defend his younger sister and himself from home invaders.
In fact, when added together, knives, blunt instruments and the human body were responsible for more than nine times as many homicides as rifles in 2011. Yet no one is asking why anyone would want to own a set of steak knives, place a heavy candelabra on their mantle or have a hammer in their garage.
Information on so-called “assault weapons” can be seen here, as well as in the Related Posts section shown below.
