AR-15s can be used to de­fend our homes

The Morning Call - - TOWN SQUARE -

Over­looked in the de­bate on semi­au­to­matic weapons like the pop­u­lar AR-15 is that gun’s de­fen­sive ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Nearly all guns can be used of­fen­sively or de­fen­sively.

The Morn­ing Call re­ported dur­ing this year’s Musik­fest that Beth­le­hem po­lice car­ried AR-15s as a de­fen­sive weapon.

We also read of the dif­fi­culty cities are hav­ing re­cruit­ing po­lice of­fi­cers. Should that trend con­tinue, the in­di­vid­ual will be­come more re­spon­si­ble for his own safety.

We also read, in­creas­ingly, of home in­va­sions. An AR-15 with a mag­a­zine hold­ing more than 10 rounds would be a good de­fense.

As for the Sec­ond Amend­ment, it is the peo­ple’s bul­wark against peo­ple like Beto O’Rourke. Let’s be care­ful what we wish for. Thomas K. Tate North White­hall Town­ship
