While browsing through the various sections of this message forum I came across an article of some fella that ended up taking some guys life with, if I remember right, a Mini-14. I thought it was a shame of all the crap the guy went through simply because of the weapon he used.
I think it's a shame that firearms like the AK-47 & AR-15 are legal, and yet, when somebody uses them in self defense the people are treated differently than if somebody was to use an 870 shotgun. I can only imagine around here, if somebody used a typical hunting shotgun or rifle people would be saying, "oh, thats too bad." but if somebody happened to have an AK-47, "dear god, they must of been looking for trouble, look at the gun they have!!"
I guess with all of my ranting I do have two questions for everybody:
- How can this treatment be changed, and the firearms become more accepted by the general public?
- What rifles could be used for self defense that provides quick follow-up shots that might still be alittle "less aggresive" in the eyes of the uninformed public?
I know, I know... I might be :stups: but I am quite curious to read some of the input you guys may have.
