[Related: Photos: These are the victims of the Florida school shooting]
In his post, he stated he is “putting my money where my mouth is” and he wants to be “the modification [he] wishes to see on the planet.” Read his whole post below.
I’m putting my money where my mouth is (from the other day’s FB post).
This is an AR-FiveSeven, I own this rifle. It’s a caliber version of the AR-15. I am an accountable, extremely trained weapon owner. Nevertheless I do not need this rifle.
Nobody without a police badge requires this rifle.
This rifle is not a “tool” I have use for. A tool, by meaning makes a job/work simpler. Any “task” i can consider lawfully requiring doing can be done better by a different gun.
I enjoyed shooting this rifle immensely but I do not require it, I have other types I can aim for the very same enjoyment. I have actually surrendered this rifle to The Broward Constable at the Tamarac Post.
I could have quickly offered this rifle, however no person needs this. I will be the modification I wish to see in this world. If our law makers will continue to close their eyes and open their wallets, I will lead by example.
The post is going viral, acquiring more than 55,000 shares in less than 12 hours.
Correction: The original story listed Ben Dickmann as a policeman. He is not a law enforcement officer, sources have actually confirmed.
