Guard Uses AR to Thwart Robbery at Tax Prep Center

Guard Uses AR to Thwart Robbery at Tax Prep Center

Vice President Joe Biden has been known to spend days in a row with his foot in his mouth, and apparently 2013 is no different. He has gone on record several times in the past few months talking about how people should buy shotguns for self defense, how they're much easier to aim and fire than AR-15s, etc.

Apparently "Tactical Joe" Biden, the Snake-Oil Salesman in Chief, is unaware that the shotguns which are the most suitable for home defense would be banned under Sen. Feinstein's new bill. I'm not sure when the inmates began running the asylum, but it's happening now.

Mr. Biden will probably be very surprised to hear about the recent news story from Inkster, Mich., a depressed city near Detroit. A Bonnie and Clyde type couple entered a tax preparation office armed with handguns, but were surprised by a security guard wielding an AR-15.

It appears that as soon as the guard grabbed his rifle, that was all that it took for the would-be-robbers to decide a different venue was in order. Rounds were exchanged as they ran quickly out of the house, and while the security guard was hit, his wounds are not life threatening. From everything this administration has been telling us, AR-15s aren't suitable for, well, anything.


Watching the video, I like the fact that the security guard didn't just hunker down in the back room, but rather chased the criminals right out of the house. Considering the robbers started running away as soon as the guard went for his rifle, I'm guessing that if he'd had a shotgun like the vice president recommends, they would have died of fright-induced heart attacks right on the spot.
