FILE -- In this Aug. 15, 2012 file photo, three variations of the AR-15 assault rifle are displayed at the California Department of Justice in Sacramento, Calif. While the guns look similar, the bottom version is illegal in California because of its quick reload capabilities. Omar Mateen used an AR-15 that he purchased legally when he killed 49 people in an Orlando nightclub over the weekend President Barack Obama and other gun control advocates have repeatedly called for reinstating a federal ban on semi-automatic assault weapons that expired in 2004, but have been thwarted by Republicans in Congress.

My 10 Year Old Daughter Is Tougher Than Gersh Kuntzman, Author of the Stupidest Thing on the Internet Today

Go read this. This headline itself will make your wrists go limp.

He was terrified to shoot an AR-15 rifle. It was “horrifying, dangerous, and very very loud.” It’s a gun you idiot! Were you expecting it to tickle you?

First there is this fabrication:

Many gun shops turned down our request to fire and discuss the AR-15, a style of tactical machine gun popular with mass killers such as San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook and Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen.

Do words not mean anything to this guy? What about facts? None of the terrorists he listed had a machine gun. Then there is this, but you might need a tampon to read it.

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. 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.

Even in semi-automatic mode, it is very simple to squeeze off two dozen rounds before you even know what has happened. In fully automatic mode, it doesn’t take any imagination to see dozens of bodies falling in front of your barrel.

Was his gun fully automatic? Really? The shooter in Orlando could not get a fully automatic gun and did not have a fully automatic gun.

Forty nine people can be gone in 60 seconds.

But has that happened? It did not happen in Orlando.

First of all, the dude claims he got PTSD from firing a gun at a gun range. He surely does not have the intestinal or testicular fortitude to be doing this. But then he takes the great leap to conclude that the rest of us should be prohibited from doing it because he is too much a sissy to do it.

Seriously, for the record, my 10 year old daughter just got her first .22 and can fire it without bruising either her shoulder or ego. She can also handle my spooky looking and staggeringly awesome “military style assault rifle.”

MY 10 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER is apparently more a man than this jackass.
