    The NYDN. Americas most hoplophobic newspaper, owned by Mort Zuckermann, Americas most hoplophobic single individual.

    Not much to see here. Move along.

    Maybe if the reporter was wearing hearing protection and was focusing on the front sight it would have been a different story. And recoil from an ar-15 bruising a shoulder? I have my doubts unless the rifle was held away from it when fired. Even then I doubt it.

    Is there video of them actually shooting it because I have my doubts. They were probably "anxious and irritable" before the "incident".

    If the AR-15 had this type of reaction from I would love to see him handle a 12 Gauge shotgun. That would probably land him in the insane asylum.

    And he found a Social Democrat European FFL to help him out, too.

    But one strange thing, my smokeless powder firearms don't smell of sulfur.

    Why a story about an AR-15?? Idiot in orlando used a SIG something-or-other semi auto.

    When words stop having universal meaning ...

    Funk & Wagnals are rolling over in their graves... in this MODERN society, where the definition of words can change every day.

    True. The savage used a Sig Sauer MCX with no major parts interchanging with the AR 15.

    Again, it's the NYDN ,Zuckermann agenda. It will remain until the rag folds.

    If you ban guns, you better ban pressure cookers, box cutters, knives and an assortment of other {weapons}.

    I wonder how long it took to find that dealer. I think this is a stock piece pre recorded to be trotted out at any shooting.

    Chesty Puller once said:

    “Our Country won’t go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won’t be any America because some foreign soldiery will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race!”

    It was men like this author he was talking about. Too soft to survive in the wild.

    Exactly why I said there is nothing to see here.
    It's an insult and beyond that, total New York Daily News Statist stupidity.

    Do you really believe he found a gun dealer who actually believes what the article says he does? That we ought to investigate your family and friends and get a doctor's evaluation before you can buy a gun? "Journalism" at its worst.

    Krimme, you beat me to it. :)

    I've read a lot of lying drivel over the years, but that one is in the top running for "Most Nonsensical Dreck Of The Year."

    Check that raving hypocrite gun store owner who was "allegedly" a cop in Europe?? Why did he emigrate here, and with the horrible laws we have about firearms, why did he buy a gun store and sell evil guns? If things are so horrible here, why doesn't he return to the paradise from which he fled.??

    That wimped out reporter ought to shoot my elk rifle, a .338 Win. Mag. That one would really get his attention.

    Zuckerberg? Another Soros clone who hates firearms and the Second Amendment.

    I admit to reading MSM, from Yahoo News to CNN to local. Almost every opinion piece is calling for a ban on AR-15's. Since the beginnings of the internet age, I've never seen this fever pitch on gun control. Even O'Reilly is ok with banning certain guns like the AR.

    READYYEDDY - " ... Even O'Reilly is ok with banning certain guns like the AR."

    Bill O'Reilly has long been in favor of banning almost all guns. Nothing new with that smarmy, bloviating hypocrite. He marches in lock step with the left wing gun grabbers without falter.

    As I said before I think this was a pre made piece put in file to trot out any shooting. Just fill in the blanks.
