The point isn’t that one could not use an AR for home defense it’s that the risk outweighs the need and benefit.

Actually, .223 and 5.56 rounds are designed to tumble, so you could hit someone in the chest and the rounds could come out their leg.

If I fired my P226 at someone breaking through my front door, chances are very good that the rounds could pass right through them and outside behind them. Afaik, this is less like to occur if I fired my Bushmaster 5.56.

Not that it matters much. I have no intention of shooting at anyone coming through my front door, but to some people, staring down the barrel of a gun can be a good deterrent. 😎

I’d rather have a beer bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.
