Veteran Jason Rogers recorded a video of himself smashing a gun on the ground with a sledge hammer in protest of gun ownership in the state of Texas.
“I’m an Army veteran,” Rogers captioned the video. “And I’m sick of all the guns here in Texas, so I’m starting with mine.”
With over 6.6 million views for his video, Rogers received mixed feedback from Americans. On one hand, some Twitter users commented in agreement with Rogers, claiming that Rogers’ video was “cool,” with others adding that they wanted to “see someone smash an AR-15.”
On the other hand, many users commented in sharp disagreement with Rogers and defended America’s Second Amendment. Multiple Twitter users claimed they had purchased additional guns and ammunition or were on their way to a store to purchase additional firepower after watching his video.
