• NY Daily News writer, Gersh Kuntzman on
firing an AR 15: It's horrifying, menacing and
very, very loud. It felt like a bazooka and
sounded like a cannon. The recoil bruised my
shoulder. It gave me temporary PTSD.

Conservatives being against gay marriage or whatever is not going to bring down the country, but want to take away guns, hating free speech
