"Why does anyone need an AR-15?"

Good read.

"I mean, the first time I was asked, I have to admit I got a little defensive, and it was my own mother who had asked me."

I had that question posed to me by my wife. It was after the FL HS mass murder. I stood dazed for a second. Then I came around to my answer. "Because I can. It's my right. That rifle will never do anything to anyone. Unless they are needing it done to them." She was taken back by my sharpness. But, I felt I was being attacked from inside my walls. Her concern was merely how our children look at my firearms and how they see them portrayed in media. I felt like I was defusing a bomb.

Why does anyone need a car that can do double or even triple the speed limit? Why does anyone need an airplane when it's cheaper to fly commercial? Why does anyone need a super-duper smart phone when they are simply going to use it only for phone calls?

It's because our freedoms give us the right to fulfill our wants and desires not because of some socially approved or governmentally approved need. As long as we can afford it and use it responsibly it's our right to exercise.

Why do people have any right to know what I own?
