It looks like not everyone who owns an AR-15 is a crazed madman. At least one man from Illinois is thankful for that. Dave Thomas said he saw one of his neighbors being attacked with a knife during an argument, police said. Thomas ran into his house, got his AR-15 and returned, ordering the attacker to stop. “I poked my head out the door. There was a pool of blood, blood was everywhere in the hall,” Thomas said. “There was still a confrontation going on, there were about three or four people involved at this point. Police said Thomas has a valid firearm owner's identification card and a concealed carry permit.
Should mainstream media spend more time talking about these types of situations where a gun, especially an AR-15, was used by a law abiding citizen for protection?
