Reporter claims PTSD after firing AR-15
What a WUSS !!!
“A writer for the New York Daily News said firing an AR-15 for the first time Monday left him with “a temporary form of PTSD.”
Gersh Kuntzman headed off to a Philadelphia gun range after Sunday’s terror attack in Orlando, Florida, to “better understand the firepower of military-style assault weapons and, hopefully, explain their appeal to gun lovers.”
The experience of firing 5.56 mm rounds from a semi-automatic rifle, which he likened to “a bazooka” — left him a shaken man.
“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 form of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable,” he wrote Tuesday.
