Why Young Women Want AR-15s

NRO-

 

Sorry, President Obama. As young women, we prefer an AR-15 “assault” rifle with a 30-round magazine for self-defense.

In fact, we wouldn’t want to be stuck at home without one. In the wake of mass murders like Sandy Hook and the horrific rapes and murders of thousands of women each year, pepper spray, mace, or five-round handheld pistols aren’t going to cut it.

So what’s a girl to do? When choosing our tool for home defense, we want the best — in accuracy, handling, and aesthetics. The best choice by all three criteria is — hands down — the AR-15.

AR-15s are the most popular rifle in the U.S.; more than 3 million Americans own one. And its popularity isn’t with criminals — assault rifles account for only 0.6 percent of murders every year. Rather, the semi-automatic AR-15 is the gun of choice for many hunters, target shooters, and home defenders.

!SNIP!

Whoa, whoa, whoa. The most popular gun in the country, at 3,000,000 possessions, and it accounts for 0.6 percent of all murders?

I’ve been watching Penis Morgan all month tell me all about these “massss shootings” while in his next pickled herring breath he spittles out the “11,000 murders  in America per year” statistic.

You mean to tell me that this twisted old fruit has been conflating and smokifying the mirrors? I’ve been hoodwinked!

If I can prove that more than 0.6 of the murders in America were committed by people wearing Air Jordans, I’m calling for a complete ban.

    “If I can prove that more than 0.6 of the murders in America were committed by people wearing Air Jordans, I’m calling for a complete ban.’

    Good one BFH, I’d suggest you start on the south side of Chicago.

    This is fine and all, but it’s playing into the liberal argument, which is to justify why we want guns. There is no justification necessary… We are guaranteed the right and that is all the argument needed.

    So-called “assault” rifles have been given that label ONLY because they look scary – which causes liberal men to pee in their shorts.

    Senator Dianne Frankenstein stated during her presentation the figure of 385 (going from memory so forgive me if I’m off, I can’t find the audio again) people killed by assault weapons.

    If that is accurate it only shows the COMPLETE ABSURDITY of the ban.

    3 million assault weapons and a TINY FRACTION of people actually killed by them. They can’t get more obvious without a coloring book.

    Now I might just be too dumb to understand liberal math, but as I see it, there are 11,000 murders a year, and 0.6% thereof is 66, which is 0.22% of 1% of the total number of guns. So obviously, these guns ARE evil, they’re just terribly incompetent.

    Dianne Shitstein would slaughter young women for possessing one outside of government registration.

    Registration = confiscation. There is no other reason for it.

    @Claudia – Yes, absolutely. It should be banned from the White House.

    At the very least, it needs to be registered as an assault weapon.

    If even a single murder was committed by someone wearing Air Jordans, it’s one too many – we must ban Air Jordans and banish wearers of Air Jordans from every major city in America …

    Anything less is a failure to show leadership …

    Never held an AR-15, but just looking at them they appear to be not terribly heavy, and easy to handle. They fire .223 ammo, right? how much bigger is that than a .22? The charge is larger, I know, but I’ve read that the kick of an AR-15 is negligible.

    Maybe I’m blowin’ it out my ass, but it seems like a perfect gun for a woman. And it comes in pink.

    Good article that would have been better if it had not called the AR15 and assault rifle at the beginning of one of the paragraphs.

    Why use the anti-gunners incorrect political definition? Do not let them control the language.
