Now, NYDN AR-15 Writer Whines Over Being Ridiculed

posted on June 17, 2016

The New York Daily News writer who wrote a laughable column claiming firing an AR-15 gave him “a temporary form of PTSD” is now offended by the laughter.

Gersh Kuntzman had whined about being bruised by recoil, disoriented by flying brass, nauseated by the smell of non-existent sulfur and being left “anxious and irritable.” Now bruised by ridicule, Kuntzman characterized the scorn as internet trolling, and blamed the NRA for trying to deny his First Amendment rights: “You can’t even have an opinion on assault rifles—unless it’s theirs.”

Left little choice, Kuntzman doubled down on the evil AR-15, saying it “felt like a bazooka” and it “scared the crap out of me.” He summed up the “horrifying” experience by writing, “I simpered because my experience with the AR-15 bruised me, body and spirit.”

Gun owners are simpering, too … because our stomachs hurt from laughing.
