Nobody needs an AR-15, and there’s no reason at all for Americans to own one.
That has of course been the narrative from the left for a long time, with Democratic candidates recently confirming it.
“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15,” promised 2022 Texas Democrat Governor candidate Beto O’Rouke, leaving little doubt about where his party stands on the Second Amendment.
But a story out of Florida just destroyed liberal talking points. Last week, a pregnant woman defended her entire family from a violent home invasion — and she did it using an AR-15 rifle.
“A Florida woman who was eight-months pregnant and came out wielding an AR-15 rifle reportedly saved her husband and pre-teen daughter last week from a pair of violent intruders who’d broken into the family’s home,” Fox News reported.
The terrifying incident happened around 9 p.m. Wednesday. Tampa-area resident Jeremy King told Bay News 9 that he was at home with his pregnant wife and their daughter when two armed men broke into the house — and it was no social visit.
“They came in heavily hooded and masked. As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” King explained.
He recalled being pistol-whipped and kicked in the head.
“It became real violent, real fast,” he said.
The brutal home invaders hadn’t counted on one thing, however: King’s wife, who is eight months pregnant, heard the struggle and wasn’t about to let thugs terrorize her family.
“The woman, who was not identified, reportedly retreated and grabbed an AR-15 that was legally inside their house, returning to the room and shooting the intruders, hitting one of them,” Fox reported.
Both intruders changed their plans and fled. One escaped, but the other was found dead in a nearby ditch.
A quote from the husband after the incident perfectly dismantles leftist talking points.
“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it,” King told Bay News 9. “(My wife) evened the playing field and kept them from killing me.”
Think about that for a moment, because it’s spot-on and very important. An eight-months pregnant woman, who under normal circumstances might be an easy victim for criminals, was able to defend herself and her entire family against not one but two
While Democrats want to confiscate guns from legal firearm owners, this stunning incident is one of many where a “good guy with a gun” stopped an armed criminal from killing innocent people.
In 2017, a hero security guard shot an armed serial robber after he charged into an Illinois bank branch.
Security guard Brian Harrison whipped out his gun and shot the robber when he saw the perpetrator waving a gun around.
The attempted robbery occurred while three bank employees were on duty. No one was hurt during the terrifying incident.
In May, two gunmen who invaded a house in Alabama were shot dead by the armed homeowner.
The homeowner, who was shot multiple times and injured when gunfire was exchanged during the burglary, is recovering after surgery.
Ironically, as crime surges, Democrats are making an aggressive push for more gun control.
All this does is erode the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. Criminals don’t follow the law anyway and will find ways to get their hands on guns.
If “gun control” were the solution, why are there so many shootings in Democrat-controlled Chicago, Philadelphia and New York, which boast the strictest gun-control laws in the country?
