Reporter Gets Pussy Of The Year Award For Testing Out An AR-15 Firearm [Video+]

Excerpts from Gersh Kuntzman's article in the New York Daily News:

One day after 49 people were killed in the Orlando shooting, I traveled to Philadelphia to better understand the firepower of military-style weapons and, hopefully, explain their appeal to gun lovers.

But mostly, I was just terrified.

I’ve shot pistols before, but never something like an AR-15. Squeeze lightly on the trigger and the resulting explosion of firepower is humbling and deafening (even with ear protection).

The recoil bruised my shoulder, which can happen if you don't know what you're doing. 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 form of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.

I don't understand what people have got against guns. You guys in the US are only averaging about one and a half mass shootings a day, and yet you've got people like this pussy reporter trying to claim that guns are dangerous. What a pussy.

I have shot 12,20 gage shot guns 22, and 45 even 9 mill pistols. When I shot M-16 in the service I was so surprised at the lack of recoil in the M-16 that my marksmanship actually suffered at first I had to get use to the lack of recoil, may be in a enclosed area the sound is loud in the open air firing ranges I used the report didn't seam that loud.

If he wants to know what recoil feels like, he should fire a 7.62 FNAL variant. Standard designation in the ADF was L1A1-SLR...same weapon used by all commonwealth forces for many years (but referenced as different designations, in different countries). Now that particular bugger CAN hurt your shoulder with the recoiil. First time I fired a variant of the M16, I was confused, I thought I had a misfire, 'cos I felt nothing...the SLR gave a massive impact to the shoulder, the L1A2-AR was even worse, due to the higher rate of fire, but any of the weopon variations based on the original m16 design is nothing in comparrison. Same with the F89-AusSteyr....it's jsut...'pop".

How the hell does anyone get a bruise from the recoil of an AR-15? It's got the recoil of a .22. I guess a 30-30 would take his arm clean off. I'd call him a pussy but usually those can take a pounding.

Not only is this guy an absolute PUSSY but he "doubled down" on his fear and terror after an avalanche of valid criticism (and hate). His article actually gets a few facts correct: the AR-15 was not used in the attack and some other details. But mostly? He's so scared of "evil guns" he literally pisses himself... a typical liberal reporter. >>> In related news? The 'reporter' lady who bought a gun in Pennsylvania in 7 minutes? Reported here at IAB, broke the law and may be acing charges. In her reporting she told how she intended to give the gun to someone else, and did so. THAT is illegal! It's a 'strawman purchase' and I hope they throw the book at her. 10 years in the slammer as a message to other reporters! lolz!

More fair and unbiased reporting in our mainstream news media. I'd pay money to see that tool tell a vet with real PTSD his sad story.

Well that was a waste of time. At no point in the video does the reporter fire the AR15. You only see him hold it incorrectly
