The fastest police response is in the area of 7-15 minutes. The standard AR-15 bullet travels at 3,251 feet per second and delivers 1300 foot-pounds.

Last week, a pregnant mother used an AR-15 to protect her family from masked men who carried guns and invaded her home. Not sure it was in the story, but it sounds like the family did not even have time to call 9-1-1 until after the whole incident was over. Thank God they are safe.

There was an event in a law school where a sniper was shooting innocent people and the sniper was taken out by two law students who had legally kept guns in their cars. This event was ignored by the 30 National newspapers except for two which put it on the back page of the first section. This is common that these events are not reported because it does not go with the left narrative of four absolute gun control.

In the aftermath of a recent Florida self-defense shooting, female gun owners argued that the AR-15 provides specific advantages to women for home defense, vehemently rejecting the views of gun-control activists who insist the firearm is unnecessary.

Speaking with the Washington Free Beacon on Friday, five female firearm owners and advocates said the AR-15 platform offers several features that are ideal for women specifically. Robyn M. Sandoval, executive director of A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League, said the rifle is both more effective and safer for female shooters.

“ARs are an excellent choice for women for home defense,” Sandoval told the Free Beacon. “The platform is relatively lightweight and easy to hold and customize so that the firearm fits her body correctly. Having a rifle that is the right size for the shooter makes it more comfortable to shoot and therefore more accurate and safer.” [Free Beacon]

In that earlier story, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office noted that the AR-15 rifle was in the home legally. It is a sad commentary that this had to be said at all. It should not matter what firearm she used, or that she owned one. Good work mom and I applaud any female that is trained and is not afraid to use one for home defense.

AR-15s are perfect for women,” Mary Chastain, a writer and gun owner, said. “Despite the size, they are lightweight and have hardly any kickback. This allows us to aim well and shoot the target where we want to.”

Dana Loesch, a nationally syndicated radio host and gun-rights activist who has faced threats to her safety throughout her career, said she picks an AR-15 when it comes to home defense.

I was always taught in training that your pistol is what you use to get to your rifle, and the AR-15 is what I choose to use,” Loesch told the Free Beacon. [Free Beacon]

A spokesperson for the former Democratic Presidential candidate Beto O’ Rourke demanded the seizure of the AR-15 from homeowner and compensation for the young man that was killed while pursuing his occupation. Needless to say, I am pointing out that he was the former candidate.

We the people have a right to protect ourselves and our homes with whatever the job requires.

AR-15’s should remain legal and if you are a female, you shouldn’t be afraid to use it. In the hands of a law-abiding citizen, the weapon stops criminals who might otherwise kill their victims. Had the homeowner not had the weapon, I can assure you a very different outcome would have resulted.
