I wondered, “What gun should I choose for self defense?” So naturally…

I consulted Noted Gun Expert David Hogg.

Ah, the ever-useful straw man.

It should be noted that our nation has not witnessed an onslaught of individuals claiming they have used AR-15s or other commonly owned semiautomatic rifles for self-defense from 1,600 feet. In fact, deciding which guns can or cannot be used for self-defense based on effective range of rifles versus handguns is like deciding which car you will drive in a 35 mile per hour zone based on the vehicles’ top speed.

Self-defense happens close and, contrary to Hogg’s suggestion, it happens with AR-15s and other commonly owned semi-automatic rifles as well as with handguns.

That’s a pithy line, though, Li’l David. Catchy. Who wrote it?

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    It might outright cause him some kind of anxiety disorder that I use an AK for home defense.
