Why Would Any American Need an AR-15? Zetas, That’s Why

Sen. Feinstein: tell Arizonans how a seven-shot pistol can hold off 20 butchers on their land at night. They’re waiting.

The key rhetorical question that some who want to limit our Second Amendment rights, like Piers Morgan, keep asking is: “Why does any American need an AR-15?” They ask that question because they clearly cannot imagine any circumstances under which that would be necessary. Unfortunately, however, there are many Americans who live along the southwestern border of the United States who know the answer to that question.

Their answer is in part directly due to the enforcement and immigration decisions made by the very administration that is seeking to outlaw their right to own these types of weapons.

In 2010, I met former Arizona Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever. He talked about the many problems he faced in his county with illegal border crossers and drug smugglers — Cochise County is directly on the Mexican border. Dever, who was tragically killed in an auto accident in 2012, knew many of the ranchers and others who own property along the border and have been attacked, burglarized, threatened, assaulted, and murdered by the dangerous predators crossing into the United States from Mexico.

Those include Robert Krentz. Krentz transmitted a radio message to his family about an illegal alien on his 35,000-acre ranch shortly before being murdered. Police reports said officers followed the trail of evidence 20 miles south, into Mexico, leading Dever to believe the shooter was a scout for a drug smuggling organization.

The ranch, which the Krentz family started in 1907, was within the congressional district represented by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who testified recently in favor of the so-called assault weapons ban proposed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

This is a problem all along the Arizona border, not just in Cochise County. One rancher in Arivaca, Arizona, Jim Chilton, told NBC News on January 25 about the dangerous drug smugglers that use his land “at will.” His home has been burglarized twice, and he and his ranch hands are constantly on the lookout for armed smugglers. He told NBC:

Can you imagine riding a horse through here on your own land and running into a guy with an AK-47 and 20 or 30 guys behind him dressed in camouflage and carrying drugs?

    While hog hunting in Southeast Texas my brother was worried about drug runners coming through the ranch we were on – I told him I would have not problem providing “special care” for them, but then I realized we both had hunting rifles with:


    Next time: Saiga AK .223 and security barrel shotgun, oh and the hunting rifles too.

    What a lot of these lefties fail to understand is the Zombie Apocalypse and it’s parallels to WROL (without rule of law) and Obamabots going hungry.

    For years now I’ve run into people who think the whole zombie craze is childish role playing. They have no concept of the connection between zombies and guns because “there is no such thing as zombies.”

    Yeah well when the Chicago Fire & Police radios flare up on the scanner talking about “Canadians,” they aren’t talking about Bob and Doug McKenzie!

    No, these elitist liberals think we’ve progressed beyond ever slipping into total chaos. They cannot even fathom the possibility of desperation as a result of extremely limited resources. You just go down to Wal*Mart and get what you need right off the shelf is what they think, because they’ve never seen the Wal*Mart shelves bare.

    For frig sake I was at 3 stores within one hour after Hostess announced it was shutting down. Not even a major catastrophe, yet all 3 stores were completely devoid of Hostess products and there was a gaping hole where the bare shelves stood.

    The way to counter these numbskulls and their question of why anyone NEEDS an AR-15 is to start with 2 simple words. WHAT IF…

    Considering TX has no magazine limit for hunting and no limits whatsoever on hogs, either how or when to kill them, I advise using guns that hold a lot of ammo! and night vision scopes! Even silencers if you can pull that off. :)

    That’s why I have a Saiga 308 and an FNAR for hunting hogs. I am there for extermination of sounders – not sport – but I have fun anyway! Can’t believe I get paid for my job sometimes.

    Yeah, we were actually deer hunting but since I was the bro from outside of TX I was hog only hunting. They are delicious and come out of the deep freeze in my Yankee basement like magic!

    AR-15′s are the best coyote rifles money can buy. Even here in Illinois they recognize the AR-15 for coyote hunting, from the DNR…

    “Coyotes may be hunted on private property
    using dogs, archery devices, any
    type and caliber of handgun, any type of
    legal rifle including large capacity semiautomatic
    and shotguns using any
    type of shell except for slugs.”

    They say they can’t comprehend why anyone would need an AR-15 with a 30 round magazine, from the safety of their Upper East Side apartment.

    frankenfeinstein should be asked what newspapers she reads to keep current on world and local events?

    she probably just doesn’t know about the zetas, because she doesn’t read the nyslimes or something.

    where is katy when you need tough questions asked?

    “Need”, “Zetas”, urban slugs, coyotes, hogs, deer, zombies and “the children” and sensitive new age droolers’ feelings have absolutely NOTHING to do with it – for now at least. If I want one it’s my business. If I don’t want one, it’s my business. If you want one or don’t want one it’s your business and no one else’s. Let’s all try to keep it that way.
