By John F. Di Leo -
“You don’t need an AR-15.” After every shooting, we hear the presidents and governors and mayors repeat their call for “assault weapons bans”… because, as they say, “you don’t need an AR-15.”
Or a Sig-Sauer, or an AK-47, or whatever weapon was used in whatever shooting was in the news.
And maybe they’re right. You DON’T need an AR-15.
You could use a different weapon. There are many. Some are heavier, some are lighter. Some more or less expensive, some better at longer or shorter distances. Some fire less expensive ammunition so they’re more affordable for target practice; some fire more expensive ammunition to ensure a quick, clean kill when hunting deer, moose, or elk. Some are more comfortable for tall shooters or for short ones; some are more suited to women, some to men.
There are so many brands and models; you don’t necessarily “need” the one that you “want.” They are right about that, I suppose.
Know what else you don’t need?
