“There should definitely be harsher gun control,” said one advocate for stricter gun laws.
“It’s just an antiquated thing,” another said of the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
“There’s a national embarrassment at how many people are killed by gun violence,” a third professed.
Well, their conviction was put to the test recently when these gun control advocates were given a firearm and taught to shoot it (Mild language warning):
“I fired once and I wanted to take a nap,” one of the gun control advocates confessed.
“I’m not as scared as I was,” another added.
“I felt kind of badass,” the third individual said of the process of cocking and firing a shotgun.
While none of these individuals have probably changed their minds about the need for new gun control legislation, the impression one gets from watching them fire a weapon suggests that they may have fewer illusions about the ease of pulling the trigger.
“It was kind of enjoyable, but then I was getting sickened at me feeling enjoyable about it,” one of this experiment’s subjects confessed.
“This is a fun thing, but not every fun thing is legal,” another noted.
