Ditto on not blaming the walmart employee. But I don't blame you for jumping in. An AR is a particularly poor choice for home defense because of overpenetration. Too many innocent bystanders in my home, and you don't know what situation you are going to get into in a home defense scenario. Any gun is better than none, and there is a reasonable argument for the 22, but IMO, any pistol loaded with HP ammo would be better than a 12 gauge, if we are talking about a family's first firearm. I keep particular firearms "in service" specifically because I know my fiancee wont hesitate to use them if need be. But I can tell you she is specifically not comfortable with a 12 gauge shotgun.
