Miami Man Saves Own Life with an AK-47

A Miami man is very thankful for being a proud gun owner after he was the victim of an armed home invasion.

Last week three armed men entered a man’s apartment, pistol whipped him, and proceeded to beat him. At some point in the altercation the man was able to get a hold of his AK-47 and fight back.

“The resident of the apartment had possession of an AK-47 and after he received this beating he was able to get possession or control of that, and started shooting at these suspects as they were fleeing.”

He killed one of his attackers and chased the other two away. The police are searching for the other two assailants, who the victim knew, as all four men were acquainted.

Once again we have proof that it pays to exercise your Second Amendment rights and own a firearm. What’s ironic here is that an AK-47 is exactly the type of gun the left would say is not a good “home defense” weapon. As this living Miami man can tell you, an AK-47 is a perfect home defense firearm.

Any tool that you can use to save yourself at the moment of greatest need, is an ideal one.
