There is seemingly no end to the extent to which anti-gun people and groups will lie about guns and gun owners. Post links to articles by these masters of prevarication here.

OSWEGO, Ill. -- A man armed with an AR-15 rifle stopped an attack by one of his neighbors and held him until police arrived.

It happened Monday at an apartment building on Harbor Drive in Oswego Township.

Police say it all began when someone with a knife attacked another person during an argument.

Neighbor Dave Thomas, who witnessed the attack, went into his home, got his rifle and ordered the suspect to stop.
"The AR-15 is my weapon of choice for home protection," Thomas said. "It's light, it's maneuverable. If you train and know how to use it properly, it's not dangerous. And this is just a perfect example of good guy with an AR-15 stopped a bad guy with a knife. And there were no lives taken, so all in all it was a good day."

That guy's AR-15 must be broken. It didn't just start shooting up the neighborhood after it was let out of its cage?
