I have no real debate here. That an AR is the first thing he could grab… wow. Yeah, all the Gunnies say its the best for home defense. But even Paul Harell ( youtube star of guns ) will mention this tiny little factoid: Prosecutors earn a reputation on their win percentage. And waving an AR whatever-da-build before a jury… no matter how nice a suit you are wearing at the defense table… is going to make you look like a bat shit crazy gun nut SOB to the jury.
It just is.
It’s one of the reasons that he recommends as a HD weapon using an old pump shotgun with all wood furniture. Everything about it will say, “Hey, I just inherited this ancient thing from Grand Dad. I’m surprised the shell even fired.”
( TL:DR Acquittals = A Good Thing )
In NJ, the cops don’t want you firing in town. They especially don’t want you firing in Nice Rich Towns. Unless someone is about 3 steps away from actually killing you personally, that shit does not fly ( and it never will. If you want to mow people down into a bloody pulp for trying to steal your car, NJ just isn’t the place for you. Who says that Jack-Shit Erelli?
I do. Now go fuck off back to golf, Jack-Shit. )
Depending on what it’s chambered in, an AR is designed to be able to hit/kill Elk at 300 yards. Don’t say that it categorically won’t go through the wall of a Fort Lee High-rise and kill multiple apartment dwellers. It can and it will. Fort Lee people are both wealthy and they don’t like being shot to death. And yes, they will report the shots.
Now, if he was to move way out into Sussex County or Hunterdon County… maybe his neighbors wouldn’t have even heard the shots. But it’s a much longer commute into the city.
