Video of Little Girl Dual-Wielding Guns Viewed Over 2 Million Times

Viral video footage of a seven-year-old girl firing off two guns simultaneously has sparked an online debate over gun safety and Second Amendment rights.

In a clip posted to Twitter by LiVe2DaNceATL, a child by the name of Autumn Fry can be seen unloading two pistols, one in each hand, at an off-screen target.

Autumn Fry, who is wearing protective headphones and glasses in the video, then stops to check if one of the guns is empty before throwing it to the ground.

She then continues to fire off the remaining weapon until it too runs out of bullets. Once the firing has finished, she turns to the camera and smiles.

Say what you want, but
She'll be nobody's victim.

"Say what you want, but she'll be nobody's victim," a caption accompanying LiVe2DaNceATL's tweet reads.

The video has been viewed more than 2.3 million times at the time of writing, amassing over 1,500 retweets and 6,475 likes in the process.

It comes from Autumn's Armory, a content hub centered around pictures and videos of Autumn Fry using firearms.

The channel currently boasts 158,000 subscribers on YouTube and a further 43,000 followers on Instagram, posting under the handle autumns_armory.

Autumn Fry's father, Randy Fry, told Newsweek: "We set up the YouTube channel because Autumn is an amazing little girl who is both a gun lover and a professional at handling them."

"She has been shooting since she was very young," he added. "The channel is to show the world that some children are capable of a lot more than we expect."

Randy Fry said that the channel shows that "by handling guns properly, they don't have to be something that should be feared or kept hidden away. "

"People who are Autumn's age are the future of guns in America, and we hope that when other people see what Autumn can do, they will be inspired to at least give it a try themselves."

Autumn's Armory currently has 76 videos listed on YouTube, including clips of her testing everything from Ruger Blackhawk 10mm revolvers to AR-15-style rifles while her dad films and comments on her efforts.

The footage that features in the viral Twitter post comes from a video Autumn's Armory posted on another video-sharing platform, Odysse.

It was posted last year as an outtake from a review of a Kel Tec P17 pistol. According to the clip, Autumn was 7 at the time.

The video is not available to watch on her YouTube channel.

In a previous Instagram post, Autumn's Armory indicated they have been previously banned from YouTube on more than one occasion for content violations and invited fans to watch more of their videos on Odysee.

This particular clip has caused quite a stir since being posted to Twitter, with some voicing their support for the actions witnessed in the video.

Jakejakestorm described it as "an example of how to raise a strong independent confident woman."

WhatsATomato commented: "Bravo! Had my son shooting rifles at 9 years old. Now at 11, he is easily hitting targets 1.5 km away." Real61311501, meanwhile, suggested the girl "seems to know more about gun safety than most adults."

Others, however, expressed dismay at the footage.

"I'm pro 2nd amendment but stuff like this is just a turn off," KnobberSlocker wrote. "Teach kids to respect guns and gun safety. This is just nonsense and sends the wrong message." MichelMiron6 also warned the girl "will likely accidentally kill her mom or little brother or sister" adding that "children should not play with guns."

Bearright8, meanwhile, added: "I wouldn't throw a weapon on the ground. Do that too many times or hit the wrong rock and she'll be disarmed." AlexHadwen was highly critical of the video too, holding it up as an example of "why gun violence is endemic."

"It boggles my mind why a civilian should have access to anything other than shotguns and hunting rifles, all that's going on here is the continuation of a big problem in U.S. culture," he said.

As well as boasting a strong social media presence, Autumn's Armory also has an online shop, hosted on the website Bonfire, featuring t-shirts and other items with images of assault rifles, Autumn Fry and unicorns holding firearms.
