These 5 People Used an AR-15 to Defend Themselves and It May Have Saved Their Lives

This 15-year-old Houston boy, Rochester college student, Philadelphia couple, Detroit small business, and LA grocery store are all glad they had AR-15s the day they were attacked.

In the aftermath of last week's Washington Naval Yard shooting, Democratic gun control advocates have once again been calling for tightened gun control, including a ban on "assault weapons," such as the AR-15.

Only hours after the shooting, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) issued a statement calling on Congress to enact an assault weapons ban, saying, "This is one more event to add to the litany of massacres that occur when a deranged person or grievance killer is able to obtain multiple weapons — including a military-style assault rifle — and kill many people in a short amount of time,” Feinstein said. “When will enough be enough?"

There's just one problem with Feinstein's position: it's totally false.

AR-15s do save lives and for some, make great self-defense weapons.

They did for these five people.
