I’m going to bet you will NOT see this story on any major news outlets. An AR-15 being used to defend someone’s life? That’s impossible, right? We are told by the anti-gun agenda that the AR-15 is just a killing machine meant for the battlefield.
The extremely common rifle is constantly slandered as an “assault rifle” even though it is neither high-powered nor automatic. But on with this story.
A homeowner in Henderson NC used his AR-15 to defend against an armed intruder who broke-in early Monday morning.
According to WRAL,
Jonathan Haith said he was sleeping in his home at around 9:45 a.m. when he heard a light knock on his backdoor.
He ignored it at first. Then he heard a louder sound.
“I heard the loud bang in the laundry room area,” he said.
Someone kicked in the door, a Haith grabbed the AR-15 rifle he keeps under his bed.
“I crouched down, grabbed the firearm and was walking up the hallway,” he said. “As soon as I poked my head around the corner I saw a tall male standing there with a gun.”
Haith said he surprised the intruder.
“He shot first, I shot second,” he said. “He missed and I reckon I connected.”
The man was struck in the stomach. He ran out the home, and collapsed across the street in a church parking lot.
Police were also able to apprehend a man who was waiting outside in a car.
“I guess I did the right thing,” Haith said. “I just reacted the best way possible.
Vance County investigators have not released any information about the shooting, including the name of the intruder or his condition.
While anti-gunners continue to demonize the AR-15, it is a very viable firearm for self-defense and has been used many times in instanced just like this. It is easy to control, easier to aim, resulting in less collateral damage. And it has much less recoil than a shotgun.
There is a reason so many homeowners choose to arm themselves with AR-15s for home defense. And in this case the rifle in the hands of a law abiding citizen did the job to stop the armed intruder.
