One article of faith for the anti-second amendment crowd is that, “No one needs an assault type rifle.”
What if you are attacked around 4 am at your home by three masked robbers who begin firing at you with a handgun? I would speculate that if you only have a small caliber revolver without extensive training and experience in extremely high stress situations like this, you and your family will likely be dead in minutes. Fortunately, this homeowner in Georgia was able to save his family, even if the cost was the death of three robbers.
The reporting on this incident is all over the place with some outlets already criticizing “stand your ground” laws and others minimizing what seems to be an obvious armed robbery as an attempted burglary. I chose to use the link from CNN because no one will accuse CNN of having a conservative bias. Since this incident only occurred this morning, there are sure to be more updates.
