AR-15s Are Not Useful for Self-Defense

11/4/19 New York Post:
A pregnant woman is credited with saving the lives of her husband and daughter after she used an AR-15 to fatally gun down a home intruder, a report said.
The hero mom sprung into action when two intruders entered the family’s Lithia, Fla. home last week and pistol whipped her husband while violently grabbing their daughter, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
“They came in heavily hooded and masked,” the husband, Jeremy King, told Bay News 9.
“As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter.”
The robbers then pistol-whipped King and kicked him while the man’s wife, who is eight months pregnant, retreated into the bedroom.
“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King told the outlet. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

Besides this story, I can think of a lot of reasons why an AR-15 with a high capacity magazine would be appropriate. For example, I remember during the Rodney King riots, there were several store owners who protected their stores with AR-15s. And more recently, there was a mob outside Tucker Carlson's house chanting violent chants, yelling that they knew where their kids went to school, and running into their front door. In fact, I would say the latter example is a legitimate argument for automatic weapons.

High volume weapons would be essential in a situations of a breakdown of society - something that looks more and more likely every day.
