Celia Bigelow and Aubrey Blankenship summed up their praise for the AR-15 in their National Review column:<quoted text>
Of course the husband is usually the person with the gun.
Or someone she is dating.
"The AR-15 is lightweight and practical. As light as five pounds, it produces low levels of recoil, and it’s easy to shoot. It also looks intimidating, which is what you want when facing an assailant or intruder.… Accuracy? Check. Ease in handling? Check. Intimidation factor? Check. An AR-15 might be a woman’s best friend."
