Lying about the NRA, the Second Amendment, assault weapons, weapons of war, “clips”, magazines, and the infamous AR-15 is par for the course for leftists. So I guess when one of them actually goes to the range to fire one for themselves, they should get credit for at least trying to know what they’re talking about.
Actually, no. No they don’t. Especially when they’re this guy. And especially when they lie…
He loves the AR-15 for cops, soldiers, hunters and target shooters. “It’s fun to shoot something like that,” he said. Not in my hands. 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. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick.
Okay, firstly, anyone, and I mean anyone, who’s fired an AR-15 knows one of its main advantages is very low recoil. That’s one of the main reasons its military variant (the M16) is used the the United States military. As for the sound? Yes, guns are loud. The point? The worst bit is what follows…
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.
Is that last line stupidly offensive or offensively stupid? I’m not sure. Comparing the voluntary firing of a mild rifle to the trauma experienced by the horrors of war? And these “men” wonder why we don’t take them seriously. They wonder why most troops hate Democrats?
But the lies keep coming…
In fully automatic mode, it doesn’t take any imagination to see dozens of bodies falling in front of your barrel.
The AR-15 does not operate in “fully automatic mode.” To alter an AR-15 to be fully automatic is illegal without a Class III license. As gun-owners already know. But reporters reporting “facts” not so much.
OH! This is about the time I tell you the Muslim Orlando terrorist didn’t even use an AR-15 (he used a Sig Sauer MCX, but all scary black guns look the same, right?). But what does that matter? Let’s continue with the lies…
He admires his weaponry, yes, and has difficulty explaining why law-abiding citizens need a gun that can empty a 40-round clip in less than five seconds.
The AR-15 does not have a “40 round clip.” Magazine vs clip. This “reporter” doesn’t know the difference. Finally, this one’s just silly, but in case you still had any doubt as to whether he is completely full of crap.
It feels like a bazooka
Bazooka’s have effectively no recoil. All the energy simply escapes the back of the firearm. That’s the only way the design can function. Methinks the most experience this noodle-spined ninny has with a Bazooka is seeing a set prop version on the TV. I say that based on this reporter’s proclivity to utter incoherent sounds from his facial aperture.
Put simply, this reporter is a wimp. The kind who would jump on a chair if he saw a mouse. That is if he’s not afraid of heights.
As usual, the media completely misses the point…
