"Please see www.stewartforliberty.com for multiple videos on this. But First: AR 15 is an amalgamation of MANY types of firearms. The fitting and retrofitting can make almost anything now 'illegal' into 'legal' with just a tweak. Second: in some neighborhoods, using the AR 15, is justified to protect against marauders. Third: In some neighborhoods, THREATENING to use an AR 15 is what deters marauders. Deterrence works. Fourth: police can't be everywhere. And we wouldn't WANT them to be. Fifth: we don't want the police and military to be the only ones who can possess high-power weaponry. When one of THEM goes bad, women get raped, storeowners get shaken down, and children get kidnapped. Sixth: when only the police and Military own weaponry we are at their mercy. That doesn't work very well - as the freedom-loving people of Venzuela or Iran. Ask the few survivors still here who escaped Nazi Germany. Seventh: The gun is the best personal defensive weapon ever made. Yes, it happens to be a great offensive weapon too. But wehn my life or that of my loved one is in jeopardy, I side with defense, which is governments are formed to do. Eighth: The MAIN reason for the Second Amendment is to protect against government tyranny. If you reasonably believe the government is plotting against your neighborhood, you have the right to put a TANK in your front yard; you have the right to holster shoulder-fired missiles should the come to attack you. Ninth: our best defense against mayhem by evil-doers with AR 15s is citizen vigilance. 'If you see something, say something', makes sense. Tenth: our best way to slowly remove evil-doers is to bring humanistic VALUES to those who don't learn them. Whether through God, or through secular values, instilling a HIGHER PURPOSE means fewer people will attempt to hurt their fellow humans."
