Oklahoma Man Uses AR-15 To Stop 3 Home Intruders

posted on March 29, 2017

Gun-ban advocates like to rail about AR-15s, calling them military assault weapons and saying law-abiding Americans have no reason for owning the most popular rifle in America. One Broken Arrow, Okla., man would probably argue that point.

On Tuesday afternoon, three men dressed in all black and with their faces covered—one armed with a knife, another with brass knuckles—broke into a house in the quiet Tulsa suburb through a glass back door. The 19-year-old resident, who is the son of the homeowner, grabbed an AR-15 rifle and went to investigate, according to a report at foxnews.com.

Sheriff’s spokesman Nick Mahoney told Fox that the suspects apparently encountered the homeowner's son, who opened fire after an exchange of words. Two of the suspects died in the home's kitchen, while the third was found in the driveway.

Mahoney said the preliminary investigation indicates the shootings were in self-defense.
