PA:AR15 used in home defense

An Elkins Park man was killed late Friday after he forced his way into a stranger’s apartment in Cheltenham Township.

Jasper Brisbon, 32, wandered up to a couple late Friday at the Lynnewood Apartments as the pair spoke outside their unit. Brisbon, they told police, appeared to be on drugs. He stared at the pair for several minutes before the couple decided to go into their apartment, police said.

But as they entered their home Brisbon jumped between them, forcing his way in.

The male of the couple ran to get a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle and insisted Brisbon leave. Brisbon refused. Instead, as the man yelled “Stop! Stop Stop!” Brisbon moved menacingly toward the man, police said.

The man fired a shot striking Brisbon in the torso and immediately called 911, police said.

I believe there was some conversation about this a few weeks ago. So now we know.

Some apartment buildings don't alow firearms, its in their lease.
So lets check back and see if the guy looses his apartment.

Happened to a friend of mine and his were in a gun safe, North Olmsted, Ohio, just outside Cleveland.

Yes, it is interesting that we were just discussing the value of an AR-15 for home defense.
