The AR-15 is a versatile, dependable, and highly accurate rifle for both home defense and self-defense purposes.
This lightweight rifle has gotten a back rap by liberals, who deem it an “assault rifle” primarily because the anti-gun crowd mistakenly believes the “AR” stands from that dog whistle of a phrase – and it falls into the “big, black, and scary looking” rifle category. Let’s clear up once and for all that the “AR” stands for ArmaLite rifle, after the company that created the rifle during the 1950s.
The simple fact is, an AR-15 is no deadlier than any other type of semi-automatic rifle or handgun – regardless of the caliber. Any gun will kill, as will any hammer, knife, machete, or tire iron, when wielded for either self-defense or nefarious reasons.
