you have to wonder when reporters will get educated. I am glad though that this is another article where an "assault rifle” was used in self defense.












"one of the occupants of the home was able to retrieve an assault rifle that he kept at the residence and subsequently shot one of the intruders.”














FAIL by the media, like usual. an assault rifle? i highly doubt the man had a select fire rifle,for his home defense weapon

Actually, maybe in this case that's a good thing. It paints the deadly, lethal, fatal, probably dark colored "assault rifle" in a more positive light, and makes it apparent that yes, they can be used for self defense!

4 home invaders?  That is exactly why an "assault weapon" should be used for home defense.

1.  Forced their way inside his home
2.  Armed intruders
3. One dead and none turned themselves in to the police

Unless some insanely different info becomes available, I'll go out on a limb and call it a good shoot...

Agreed. We can blow them out the door they came from. My favorite assault weapon is the SMAW:

You are probably right, but even if he did, WHO CARES? (besides the obvious)



The question is was it a good shoot or not?  If I use a M1 Abrams for self defense and there is no collateral damage, what does it matter?





And yes, i know that using a tank is over the top but it was intentional to prove my point.

Four people, some with long guns, isn't exactly your typical home invasion. I'm thinking either homeowner was involved in something shady or was known to have a lot of cash or both.
