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