From National Review Online…
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.
Let’s face it: She may always be Daddy’s little girl, but Daddy can’t always be around. So as a daddy, I want my little girl to have access to whatever self-defense tools she feels she needs. I certainly don’t want some metrosexual bureaucrat on a Senator’s office staff deciding that for her. Whether she’s defending herself from a common street thug or a thug on the government’s payroll, I want her to have the finest weapons technology that money can buy. Any politically correct restrictions that threaten her safety are simply unacceptable.
