Here’s Why the AR-15 Just May be the Perfect Defensive Firearm
It’s a fake crisis so bad they need actors to get the word out: the AR-15 is BAD! That’s the narrative from the usual suspects, communists, traitors, etc. They hate guns, the Second Amendment, freedom, America, and you.
Screw ‘em! Let’s keep the truth coming at all costs. They say the AR is just a killing machine, only useful for murder, and only needed by soldiers. Those all happen to be lies. The truth is that the AR just might make for the perfect defensive gun – for citizens, the police, soldiers, and everyone else.
Bearing Arms and Tom Knighton present six reasons why you need an AR-15. Please read his wisdom and spread the true message. Here’s a breakdown:

All the times I have shot an AR platform gun, I have never used one to commit a crime. No one died, no soldiers were bothered. But a lot of fun was had. And, if need be, I think Tom is dead right – this is an excellent defensive tool.
“The AR-15 may well be the most vilified rifle in existence at the moment, possibly even more so than the Soviet-designed AK-47. This is especially true following several incidents where bad people did bad things with the rifle in question.
As per usual following such incidents, politicians begin clamoring for the rifle to be banned. They use all kinds of rhetoric to paint the firearm as some kind of evil murder-death-kill machine that serves no other purpose except to end lives. This usually comes from the same people who claim that the most recent gunman, armed with a Glock, didn’t have a semiautomatic weapon.
Okay, many of our enemies are mentally ill. Seriously ill. They deserve our sympathy as much as our ridicule and contempt. But we must not let them set our policy and dictate our freedoms and liberty.
For safeguarding those and guarding anything else, the AR is the ideal weapon. Here’s 6 reasons why:
There’s not much. It’s highly portable for anyone. Weight matters when the heat is on.
Relative to other rifles, the AR/M gun is smaller and more maneuverable.
Three. Light Recoil
The light .223/5.56 load and excellent gas mechanics means almost no recoil – even when bump fired. Ha! My daughter had no trouble with my AR when she was smaller. An adult barely notices it.
Four. It’s Versatile
She’s highly capable at short, intermediate, and long range. Hunt, defend, etc. all with the same compact, wonderful gun.
Five. Highly Accurate
The M-16, progenitor of the AR was purpose built to be extremely accurate. And it is. The smaller, faster rounds speed to the target with breathtaking precision.
Six. High Capacity
Another liberal lie is that no one needs higher capacity. Soldiers and the police will tell you the opposite, the truth. More rounds means insurance in a firefight, when aiming and hit-to-kill fall victim to pressure. The AR is built for 20, 30, and higher round mags.
There’s much more, many more reasons why the AR is a thing of beauty. Read all of Tom’s tips and thoughts. See if you agree. If you think you need more horsepower, then consider the .308 AR-10. Or the AK platform. FAL. So many choices. Just pick one and be ready.
One added bonus: these things scare liberals (and criminals, terrorists, and dictators). That’s a good seventh reason.
