Ben Beers drops an AR-15 after shooting Uvalde, Texas in viral video

An Oregon gun owner went viral for his AR-15 rifle and being “destroyed” by police in the wake of the Uvalde school massacre.

Before delivering his firearm to a local police station, Ben Beers gave a passionate speech about changing the country’s gun laws in a video posted on TikTok.

“I don’t want them anymore,” Ben Beers said in a video clip viewed by nearly 200,000 users.

“I know it won’t change the law or anything with gun culture in America, but hopefully it will be a form of symbolism and hopefully America can wake up because no other country has the problem that we have with gun culture and We do it with ideology and guns. Violence like we do.”

Weapons were given to the Hillsborough Police Department in Oregon the day after a rogue gunman shot and killed 19 fourth-grade students and two teachers inside Robb Elementary School in Texas.

“I woke up all night, tossing and turning, crying and trembling,” Byers, a former Marine, told KGW.

The husband and father of two told the television station that he had owned and sold other guns before, but the latest mass shooting – the worst school shooting since 2012 – prompted him to just surrender.

“I just want to turn them on, have them destroyed,” Beers said.

In an interview with Nation World News, Byers said he was sick of gun violence in America. Handing over the guns, he felt he was “on the right track of doing something right.”

“Quite frankly, I am sick of it. This devastation has been happening for decades now and it is no longer a hobby of entertainment,” he said. “Every time I see this AR-15, every time When I look at this weapon I am reminded and used the most elementary, effective tool, by the face of evil, innocent victims and quite frankly, the tool.
