Edit: Allow me to be more specific. You don’t need an ak-47 or an ar-15 for that
U can’t even get an AK-47 anywhere & I need whichever gun I want. 🙄
So OP wants me to use only a bolt action rifle which typically fires a 7.62x51mm/.308 or a shotgun, both of which cause greater damage to the target and/or the surrounding area than say a 9mm or a .223/5.56x45mm?
I would prefer to kill the intruder and only them than to also potentially kill my neighbor or anyone in the adjacent rooms. I’d like the round to bounce around inside my enemy and not go through him.
Picture below to help you understand the big numbers, OP
OP, many home invasions are with teams of 3 to 4 criminals. An AR15 means I can use one magazine to fight them off without reloading. Despite what fiction says. It can take multiple shots to stop someone. Even if such shots are rifle rounds. Also they do make AR carbines chambered for pistol cartridges.
None of these jusrifications are necessary. Get whatever gun you want cuz it brings you happiness. No more reason needed.
Necessary, no, but it helps to be articulated against retards like OP.
Also excellent for home defense:
I just get very frustrated sometimes when people feel the need to provide reasons why their rights should be respected.
It’s not something that needs to be reasoned.
I agree that rights shouldn’t have to be legitimized because they are simply rights. But it is nice to argue against the asinine “you don’t need that gun for that thing!” argument that’s almost always from people who don’t know shit about guns to begin with. I could shoot a much much bigger round with - hunting gun then with an AR 15, but only the big black scary one is the one that they’re convinced is a death machine.
