In an attempt to debunk a “wimp” reporter’s media hype pertaining to his first time firing an AR-15, Christopher Waller shot a video of himself shooting his AR-15 off the tip of his nose.
According to the report by Three Percent Nation, Christopher Waller uploaded a video on his YouTube channel to show that the recoil from an AR-15 could not bruise the user. Waller did this by shooting his AR-15 off the tip of his nose in which we can see from the video attached above, did not cause any bruising or any other form of visible damage to Waller’s face.
For those who do not know exactly why Christopher Waller uploaded a video of himself shooting his AR-15 off the tip of his nose, it is in response to an article written by Gersh Kuntzman, a reporter for the New York Daily News. In it, Kuntzman talks about going to the Double Tap Shooting Range and Gun Shop to test out an AR-15. Frank Stelmach, the man who showed Kuntzman the ropes of an AR-15, is unique among gun owners as in he believes in his second amendment right to bear arms, but also hates the idea that “bad people” can get a hold of a gun like an AR-15.
“There should be expanded background checks — extending into your family, friends and associates. And there should be a mental health screening. In Europe, if you want to buy a gun, you have to see a doctor (for a psychiatric examination) to see if something’s not right.”
Putting aside Frank Stelmach’s personal views pertaining to a rationalized and compromised version of gun control, Gersh Kuntzman was given the chance to fire the AR-15 and for him, the experience was catastrophic.
“The recoil bruised my shoulder, which can happen if you don’t know what you’re doing. 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 form of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.”
To be fair, Christopher Waller’s video is probably the most polite rebuttal to Gersh Kuntzman’s experience. In no way does Waller insult Kuntzman, but instead disproves Kuntzman’s statement of how an AR-15 has a recoil that can bruise someone. Unfortunately for Kuntzman, Waller’s video is probably the nicest anyone who likes their AR-15 will ever be. According to the Independent Journal Review, many have taken to social media to mock Kuntzman. Either it be memes or videos of young girls shooting an AR-15, they do a lot to demean Gersh Kuntzman and his manhood.

Eventually, Gersh Kuntzman followed-up on his article after his ridicule pushing that his reasons for his article were to remind his readers that mass murder is much easier to commit with an AR-15 which he calls a “semi-automatic killing machine.” He even pushes that he supports the second amendment, but under some strict regulations which he in turn calls it the “well-regulated militia” part of the amendment.
As for Christopher Waller’s video of shooting an AR-15 off the tip of his nose, as of this moment, it has over 1.2 million views on his YouTube page since it was uploaded on Friday, June 17. Man conservatives claim the reason why Waller’s video lacks attention is because certain news and broadcasting companies, such as ABC, CBS, and NBC, highly favor liberals and the Democratic Party. Any current event, either it be a demonstration, reported incident, or video, that goes against what conservatives call the “liberal agenda” will often be ignored by them.
