A self-defense connoisseur with a large social media presence has ignited a firestorm over his posting of a video showing a mountain lion getting shot in the head.
Mrgunsngear (Mr. Guns n’ Gear), whose first name is Mike, is a United States Air Force and Army Veteran who uses his “experience on a pretty wide variety of fire arms” to review firearm products on several platforms, including a YouTube channel with over 650 thousand subscribers, according to his website.
A video posted to his Twitter account Wednesday depicts someone using a Glock to deter the threat of a mountain lion in the wilderness. Mike has stated that he did not film the video himself.
WARNING: The following video contains graphic language and violence that some viewers will find offensive.
“Not all threats are two legged…” he tweeted.
