Homeowner Stops Robbery with AR-15

Has anyone else noticed how more and more crimes are being prevented with firearms? It’s astonishing that as our nation seems to free-up law abiding citizens to protect themselves, they seem to be doing just that. Protecting themselves.

Well, it’s happened again.

The difference this time around is that the homeowner used his AR-15 to protect his home and himself. Why is that important? It wasn’t too long ago that the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, was telling us how ineffective an AR-15 was as an assault weapon.

However, Biden is wrong. A shotgun may be preferable for some for home defense, but for others the AR-15 is the better choice. Case in point.


A Henderson, a North Carolina man, woke up Monday morning to the sound of someone trying to gain access to his home. The homeowner ignored what he thought was someone knocking but then the intruder kicked his way into the home.

“I heard the loud bang in the laundry room area. I crouched down, grabbed the firearm and was walking up the hallway. As soon as I poked my head around the corner I saw a tall male standing there with a gun. He shot first, I shot second. He missed and I reckon I connected. I guess I did the right thing. I just reacted the best way possible.”

The homeowner did indeed “connect” with the intruder who got out of the house but collapsed a short while later. Local police also caught the man’s accomplice who was waiting for the man outside in his car.

So there you have it. An AR-15 used for home defense proves itself equal to the task of helping a homeowner defend his home against an armed assailant.

So Mr. Vice President… do you have any other useless advice for Americans whose rights you’d like to strip?
