This week, two students at the Rochester Institute of Technology in upstate New York used an assault rifle that may soon be banned by law to frighten away armed burglars who had broken into their home.
Local station ABC 13 reports that the students, Christopher Boise and Raymond (no last name given) were awakened in the wee hours Tuesday morning to noises coming from the basement.
Boise got up to investigate and found two men, one with a gun pointed at him, at the bottom of the stairs in the lower level of his apartment.
Hearing Boises cry of alarm, Raymond instinctively went for his AR-15 rifle, which he kept legally for self-defense.

But just damn, WTF? so the perp is at the bottom of the stairs with a weapon to his own head? Or What?
Maybe it would be a lot clearer to say: "One POINTING A GUN AT HIM." Now the picture changes.
Now I can see some copy editor responding, "whatever, you knew what I meant."
If you have no command of the language, you can no longer communicate effectively. Low info mofo. /rant>
Isn’t the object to prevent people from defending themselves? I wouldn’t be surprised if that were a hidden motive.
Having left Rochester many moons ago, I would hazard that if he had actually fired the weapon, the cops would be singing a different story...
Good post. America has a generation of dunces who were taught by a generation of dunces who were taught by a generation of America-hating Marxists. When do we get vouchers and a real education for our kids?
