Great line. I'll keep this line in mind, especially when asked by those who oppose gun ownership.

I though it was a crappy article. It is one of the main reasons why the 2A is being curtailed in the courts. No right is absolute. When the only reason given is that "it is my right" you will find that you may not have that right any more.

My answer is that we need good guys with guns to defend against the bad guys. The government has determined that this type of arm is useful to accomplish this task.

As I told my MIL, what gun do you want me to have when a thug or 2, or 3, kicks down my door and I need to protect your daughter's life? I don't want a fair fight. I want an advantage. An AR gives me that advantage. If there was something better than an AR, then that's what I would want.

Ask me why I need a red Roush F150 and a Red Mustang GT?

To have the correct equipment to respond when the "Militia" is called out the next time.

Because I can , and want to is entirely correct .



BUT , if you think it is a situation appropriate for actual education you could try something like :

" They are highly popular because they are lightweight, ergonomic, reliable , accurate, adaptable. And in the most popular configurations easily adjustable for use by people of all statures and physical abilities, including elderly and handicapped .

And all of that despite being LESS powerful/ deadly than most other common rifles . "

The correct reply is "free people are not required to justify a "need" to purchase or own property. The requirement of others to justify the why or need of a particular item is the communist model..."to each according to their need", and is against American values. The real question is to ask why so many millions of people in the US want them. Put it back on the people asking the question and stump them.

Why do we need fire extinguishers? The chance of a fire happening is so small

There are citizens who are prepared for a life of liberty and even more that are for prepared for a life of tyranny

Why do you need that many Cabbage Patch Dolls?? Why do you need that many pre 1955 Lionel Trains?? Why do you need that many pre 1950 Zippo lighters?? Why do you need a 2019 Corvette that seats two when you are a family of 4???

The same reason I have a Mustang 5-OH, AR-15 and numerous weapons! I don't need them.....I LUST for them!!

The answer is OBVIOUS.
