re: Boy, 15, defends sister, 12, from burglars with father's AR-15(Posted by Shreveporter on 1/10/13 at 12:36 pm to jeepfreak)
Wait... Something doesn't add up. Linked story said teen shot one of the intruders with an "assault rifle" and that the intruders then fled, leaving a trail of blood. But just yesterday, I heard Gen. Mcchrystal say that assault weapons were for the battlefield, not civilian use, and that when they hit the human body, the effects are "devastating" because they're designed for that. So, first story must be wrong. Not enough carnage to be an assault weapon. Are we sure he didn't just use a revolver like that lady in Georgia? She shot her home invader five times and he ran away too.
But in all seriousness, the story of the home invader in Georgia is the best argument I've heard for "high capacity" clips. She was out of bullets and he was walking.
