Liberal New York “journalist”, Gersh Kuntzman, took it upon himself to actually fire an AR15, just to see what the hoopla was about.
Squeeze lightly on the trigger and the resulting explosion of firepower is humbling and deafening (even with ear protection).
The recoil bruised my shoulder. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary case of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.
Even in semi-automatic mode, it is very simple to squeeze off two dozen rounds before you even know what has happened. In fully automatic mode, it doesn’t take any imagination to see dozens of bodies falling in front of your barrel.
Poor, poor delicate X chromosome snowflake.
The part about “fully automatic mode” is a lie. No civilian AR15 can go full automatic. That’s why it’s an AR15, and not an M16. But we won’t let those facts get in the way of our completely biased take on guns, shall we?
Behold the liberal hoplophobic agenda. Enjoy.
