I was asked to post this here, so others could read it. The firearms industry has enough enemies, we don't need additional ones from within.
Quoted from Firearms Industry magazine:
"Let's be honest. You really DO NOT need an AR-15 to defend your home. A double barrel 12 ga shotgun works. Yes, I think people should have the right to an AR-15, if they want one. The point is this: It's a hard sell, and a weak case."
This was in the industry news section of the magazine, and is a direct comment by the editor during commentary about the US Supreme Court declining to hear a NJ case on the assault weapons ban.
I'm in the process of trying to get more contact info. for the magazine. Might be a good idea for all of us to contact them and let them know how WE feel about their comments.
