I grew up around guns. When you’re from a small town in the middle of Alaska it’s just “what you do” and “how you live your life”.
This particular gun is an AR-15. The same gun James Holmes used to kill and injure innocent people at the screening of the Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado.
I’ve shot this gun many times on my trips back to Alaska and I fully understand how powerful it is. It’s one of the scariest guns on the planet. It scares me and I’m not scared of anything (except for ghosts and sharks and constantly worrying about people I love dying).
I’m not saying we should ban guns, I actually enjoy target practice and going hunting. I also think it’s smart to know how to defend yourself and your family should you ever be in a life or death situation and really had to kill a deranged motherfu*#er, but I wouldn’t be offended if we had a law banning assault rifles. If you’ve ever shot a semi-automatic weapon, you know sh*t gets pretty crazy, pretty quickly. In the wrong hands, this is the best gun to use if you’re looking to kill as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time.
