You can’t miss this: watch anti-gun hipsters shoot guns for the first time
Four guys realize why shooting is a rage across AmericaThe guy shooting the gun for the first time.
A group of anti-gun hipsters check out a gun range for a day to see why people across America enjoy shooting guns. They decide to find out first-hand by shooting a variety of weapons for the first time. It’s exactly what you’d expect.
All of the guys, except one who was raised in the South, have never shot a weapon in their lives. Their views on weapons are apparent. The video starts off with one of the men saying “I don’t like guns. At all.”
“These are military grade weapons whose only purpose is to kill people. To kill a lot of people very fast, very effectively,” one of the guys said.
The Try Guys is a comedy series by Buzzfeed Motions Pictures that features four guys – Zach Kornfeld, Eugene Lee Yang, Ned Fulmer, and Keith Habersberger. The four of them write, produce, direct, and act in their own videos where they try something new every time. Their most famous viral video is The Try Guys Try Labor Pain Simulation.
At a time when the world is facing terrorist threats all the time, the Try Guys raise some controversial points. There has always been a link between firearms and masculinity because husbands want to protect their family, and one of the first points raised but a select few, not by others, after the Las Vegas incident involving Stephen Paddock was that gun violence is predominantly a male problem.
The Try Guys claim that they have never looked at a gun as something masculine, and after shooting one for the first time, they say it didn’t make them anymore a man. They do say that it made them behave like boys.
Shooting guns is one of the manliest recreations around, and understandably so. It inspires an adrenaline rush.
There are lots of reasons why people own a gun. Protection and self-defense are two of the most important reason people say they own a gun, others claim they own guns for hunting and recreation. Some say they own guns simply because the Second Amendment says they can. Some people even keep guns to protect themselves from the government that makes them feel unsafe.
