This Is Why You NEED An AR-15
[Comments enabled]

So nobody "needs" one, eh?

Deputies said the man and woman said the suspects attacked the man, pistol whipping him and beating him. That's when the woman retrieved a gun and fired a shot, hitting one of the suspects, deputies said.

The suspects ran out the home, with the wounded man falling into a ditch nearby. That's where deputy found him. 

Yeah, just a gun, right?

Uh, wrong.

The woman in question was pregnant.  They broke in, started pistol whipping the man, severely injuring him.  His wife, who is pregnant, retrieved an AR-15 and plugged one of the suspects who managed to make it a short distance away before collapsing in a ditch.

The communist local paper didn't note the type of weapon, but the NY Compost did.  So did Fox.

Gee, I wonder why the local communist paper didn't specify?  Where are all the politicians urging families, especially where women are pregnant, to arm themselves with AR-15s?

The area in question is one I'm somewhat familiar with, having run a race there a few years ago.  There's not much there; it's well east of the Tampa / St. Pete area.

In any event if you want to know why you need an AR-15, well, this eight-month pregnant woman just showed you why.  She was able to interrupt the attack and, quite-likely, saved her husband's life in doing so.
