  •  A shotgun is an ideal home defense weapon. (5+ / 0-)

    An assault rifle, not so much.  A 5.56 round is small and pointy and there is a lot of powder behind it.  You're going to be throwing rounds out of your own home and into houses all around you.  So I guess if you want to be as much of a threat to your neighbor's child as you are to whatever bad guy you're shooting at, go right ahead and start spraying people with your AR-15.

    And this is assuming that the individual in question is trained and capable, something that almost no civilians are.
