Due to recent world events, it is time for me to purchase a rifle in order to protect my family. I'd like your help, if possible.
I live in the southeastern United States. I am looking to purchase a rifle at a regular gun store with the following characteristics:
A) It must be combat effective. I am using this to defend my family. I am not trying to scare or maim potential aggressors.
B) I do not mind performing maintenance, but I'd rather it be a medium amount as opposed to a high amount.
C) Reliability is important. I will not be firing the weapon often, but would like to be confident that it's ready to roll when I am
D) I do not intend to modify it immediately (weapon attachments, mechanical modifications), but I would certainly consider it if a major happening ends up not happening in the near future.
I have experience with only small caliber rifles, and various handguns. I am, however, willing and able to hit the range a few times to get acquainted.
Can you help me /k/? I don't really trust anyone else for guidance.

Middle East General- Road to Mosul edition

As dawn approaches in the Middle East, ISF and coalition partners are preparing for the fourth day of the offensive to retake Mosul.
ISF's golden division has positioned itself along the northern frontline and most likely be attempting to push south along highway 2 in an attempt to capture the ISIL CW factory and advance as far south as Al Rashidiyah.
Thus far coalition forces are on or ahead of schedule with regards to the offensive's timeline. The only exception is with the town of Qaryat al-Abasi, where ISIL fighters continue to hold the population center after halting various ISF attacks. Despite this, ISF have surrounded the town and have decided to push on, choosing to besiege the town rather than waste time trying to capture it.
Last update (and the most recent one); ISIL has launched a "massive" offensive in Northern Hama. The targets of the attack are the villages of Al-Mufakkar, Tal Al-Tout, and Fritan, which are controlled by the SAA. Last thing that was reported was that the RuAF and the SyAF were providing air support for the troops in the three towns. Fighting is still ongoing and no further reports have surfaced (yet) about the current situation in the three towns.
