That’s right ladies and gentlemen. Seven year-old girls are tougher than liberal men (well, males at least; not sure if they’re really men or not).
A NY Daily News journalist recently went to shoot an AR-15 after the Orlando terror attack, and had a rather odd reaction.
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.
Even in semi-automatic mode, it is very simple to squeeze off two dozen rounds before you even know what has happened. If illegally modified to fully automatic mode, it doesn’t take any imagination to see dozens of bodies falling in front of your barrel.
Are you serious? You’re that scared of an inanimate object? Grow a pair!
The AR-15 can’t do all these things he’s claiming. Sure it’s a loud gun, all of them are. But that’s why you wear ear protection. And if you’re still afraid of loud noises, you probably shouldn’t leave your house again!
It can’t bruise your shoulder unless something goes wrong. The AR can be fired with one hand, it won’t bruise you if it is functioning properly.
If you get PTSD from firing the gun, well I would recommend you go see a psychiatrist.
Townhall.com columnist Mat Vespa has a different take:
I’ve fired an AR-15 many, many times. I never had an emotional episode, besides outright joy (they’re fun!). These rifles are easy to shoot, reload, and light in weight. It makes them optimal choices for hunting, target practice, shooting sports, and self-defense. It’s because of these reasons that a lot of women are looking to AR-15 rifles as their friends.
You don’t even have to be an adult in order to operate an AR-15. How about a 7 year-old shooting an AR for the first time?
Did she cry, complain that it hurt, or get PTSD?
Watch to see what happens:
Looks like a 7 year-old is more of a man than reporters at the NY Daily News! Way to go girl!
Maybe it’s time we start educating people than conditioning them to be afraid of inanimate objects.
