LOL: This Daily News reporter just claimed he got PTSD after firing an AR-15

Just a day after a radical Islamic terrorist took the lives of 49 Americans at a nightclub in Orlando, Gersh Kuntzman of the New York Daily News decided he was going to put his best liberal bias to work and show why AR-15s are “horrifying, dangerous and very very loud.

Kuntzman couldn’t fathom why anyone would ever want to own one of these “military style assault weapons,” so he traveled to a gun shop in Philadelphia and did what so many Americans have the right to do in their spare time: He shot a firearm in a safe setting, just for the fun of it. The results were highly entertaining:

“The recoil bruised my shoulder. The brass shell casing disoriented me as they flew past my face … The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary case of PTSD … I was anxious and irritable,” Kuntzman journals of his poor little traumatized emotions!

OMG. LOL. Please excuse me while I compose myself …

OK, Mr. Kuntzman, time to grow some balls.

I’m a 135-pound female and have absolutely zero fear of firing an AR-15. And I can tell you, without a doubt, it does NOT sound like a cannon, nor does it feel like a bazooka.

In fact, I’ve been using firearms since I was six years old, when my dad put a double-barrel shotgun in my hands and taught me to properly fire it. It’s amazing how not terrifying something is when you’re taught to have a healthy respect of it.

These little girls don’t seem to have a problem firing their AR-15s either:

And to be sure you know I’m not being sexist, here is a little boy who didn’t seem to have a problem firing AR-15s:

As Erick Erickson notes, Kuntzman’s attempt at reporting is full of fabrications, fact distortions, and flat-out overheated false narratives.

One last thing to note in this ridiculous garbage the Daily News calls “reporting”: the terrorist did not even use an AR-15. Why does the Left insist on using this terrorist attack to take away law-abiding citizens’ ability to own these firearms?

So, Mr. Kuntzman, in addition to revoking your man card, I’ll also have to revoke your ethical journalist card.
