Why Young Women Want AR-15s

Posted on: January 26th, 2013

Sorry, President Obama. As young women, we prefer an AR-15 “assault” rifle with a 30-round magazine for self-defense.

In fact, we wouldn’t want to be stuck at home without one. In the wake of mass murders like Sandy Hook and the horrific rapes and murders of thousands of women each year, pepper spray, mace, or five-round handheld pistols aren’t going to cut it.

So what’s a girl to do? When choosing our tool for home defense, we want the best — in accuracy, handling, and aesthetics. The best choice by all three criteria is — hands down — the AR-15.

AR-15s are the most popular rifle in the U.S.; more than 3 million Americans own one. And its popularity isn’t with criminals — assault rifles account for only 0.6 percent of murders every year. Rather, the semi-automatic AR-15 is the gun of choice for many hunters, target shooters, and home defenders.

    My AR is not an “assault rifle”. It is a defense weapon. It puts me on a more level playing field.

      Wee need to encourage everubody to stop using the left’s fear mongering labels! The right only adds fuel to their fire by using their labels

    My FNFL is not a assault rifle either. Then again what is????? The 98Kar Mauser is a bolt action rifle that has killed more people than any other in history and only has five rounds. You have Biden drunk once again advocating a shot gun. I tell him what at 100yds I will engage him with my weapon and he can have his a double barreled shot gun that he believes to be the superior weapon for defense.

      My baseball bat is an assault weapon. I don’t play baseball, its only purpose is to smack some perp up side the head if he breaks down my door. My guns, knives, etc. all have other primary purposes- for now.

    • cottagemidt

      Ohh..yeah…Bide is a idiot..swipe..

  • SIRWIZARD

    The only thing better than an AR15 is TWO AR15′s. My wife handles one very nicely AND SHE LIKES IT.

    What the hell is wrong with people – We let the media call our guns “Assault Rifles” and they are NOT – Assault Rifles are banned in the US, they are only owned by the Military, and they are FULL auto!!
    We – as legal gun owners cannot own them, but the Media keeps calling them “Assault Rifles” and we LET them??? We also let the Media call our regular -semi-automatics – “Assault Weapons”. Again – they are Not! Assault Weapons is a catch phrase coined by the MEDIA about 10 years ago-just after the ” BAN that Feinstein started – they needed a catchy name and the Media started this one – and WE- the “Legal Gun Owners” let them get away with it – AGAIN!! Wake up Folks!! Pressure your local papers to NOT use the wrong name for the guns– i.e Assault Rifles or Assault Weapons. Read the paper – they use them every day – UN_CHECKED!! STOP This Crap!! The Majority of my guns – both hand and rifle- are semi-automatic weapons – NO MORE – NO LESS!!

      “We – as legal gun owners cannot own them.” We CAN own them. You have to pay a $200.00 fee and pass a background check, but we do have the right to own them.

      • SaipanEd

        You forgot a ZERO…..$2000.00!! A Semi-Auto is just that and no more (or less). MolonLabe

    What every home needs because the rag tag armies of trayvons are going to go from house to house to steel and maraud when all hell breaks loose.

    According to Mayor Nutter (female D, but can’t recall the city) told the Tory Piers Morgan (needs immediate deportation) that according to her so called “experts” that it’s much easier for a women to use a bolt action rifle. Oh really and an ARmalite copy can be charged by a 6 year old or an 80+ year old great-grandmother. Almost no recoil and a follow-up shot is there as soon as the trigger is released and the sear resets, without loss of the sight picture on target. More propaganda from the ANTIs.

    AR 15′s just aren’t for young women. Mature women like them, too, and for the very same reasons!

  • parlayer

    Winchester, S&W, and Colt definitely will level the field. Practice, Practice, Practice no mater what sex or size you are. a pink AR is just as good as an evil black one.

  • cottagemist

    I am not a young lady, but a fullsom older, mature warrior patriot..who will get a AR15..for my home..I live alone,want great.coverage..Thank God of purchases prior to forced lists.

  • Reb Biker

    Plus they’re light weight, plus they don’t kick, plus the woman won’t have to worry about reloading, plus she has a chance facing multiple attackers, plus seeing a woman with an AR-15 will SCARE THE HELL out of a criminal. Shucks, seeing ANY angry woman scares the heck out of me! ;-)
