Gersh Kuntzman, a writer for the New York Daily News, recently went on a quest to experience the firing power of the AR-15 rifle. In his own words:
It felt to me like a bazooka — and sounded like a cannon.
One day after 49 people were killed in the Orlando shooting, I traveled to Philadelphia to better understand the firepower of military-style weapons and, hopefully, explain their appeal to gun lovers.
But mostly, I was just terrified.
Not only did shooting the AR-15 terrify him (and by the way, the AR-15 is actually a civilian rifle, not a military rifle, but let's not get caught up in specifics or semantics), it gave him a bruise. Poor Gersh.
"That's because you're a moron," Glenn said.
Holding a rifle properly would have avoided the tell-tale bruise of a novice.
Gersh also claimed to experience a "temporary form" of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
"Insulting," Co-host Pat Gray said.
"You are an insult to girls," Glenn added.
More importantly, his claim is an insult to real soldiers with real PTSD.
"Well, I don't know what sex this guy has chosen, but he's chosen to be a complete and total wuss," Glenn said.

The rally attracted several hundred people for the march to the Utah Capitol in favor of 2nd Amendment rights as gun control supporters call for more limits and bans on assault weapons.
