A video of a seven-year-old girl shooting an AR-15 rifle is being offered in response to a New York Daily News reporter who whined about the “horrifying” experiencing of firing the weapon.
In the aftermath of the deadly terror attack in Orlando by a radicalized Muslim gunman that claimed 49 lives, Daily News’ Gersh Kuntzman went to a gun range in Philadelphia to fire an AR-15 — the journalist explained that he wanted to “better understand the firepower of military-style assault weapons and, hopefully, explain their appeal to gun lovers.”
His reaction went viral… for all the wrong reasons.
“It felt to me like a bazooka — and sounded like a cannon… But mostly, I was just terrified,” he wrote of the experience.
He went on reassure girly men of America that they are not alone.
“The recoil bruised my shoulder,” Kuntzman said. “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.”
Back to the video of the seven-year-old, after squeezing off her first round from an AR-15, the young girl was asked, “How’d that feel?”
“Pretty good,” she calmly replied. “That was pretty good!”
