Reporter fires AR-style rifle for fist time.
The gun was so scawy!! It hurt my shoulder!
“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.”
Temporary case of PTSD? You (self-edited). You edited edited. The explosions were loud like a bomb? You edited edited. If I could, I would say those words to the reporter’s face. And maybe add “idiot” and “stupid.” My reaction to Kuntzman’s dumbassness … I have to stop now.
The whole story:
The reporter’s response to responses.
You have to wonder: (1) did Kuntzman get more than five or 10 minutes' instruction; and (2) is it possible he went into the story with possible pre-conceptions?
