Secret Master of All Flatulence: Let's face it...that's the second valid use for a laser on your sidearm that I've heard of...the primary use being "cat toy".

/just take the slide and barrel assembly off before using it.



Last Sunday a guy came to the range with a pistol gripped mossberg 500 that had a laser sight, red dot holo sight, tritium ghost ring sights, and a strobe light. damn thing weighed more than my Lee Enfield mk III

1) Using a weapon in an entirely inappropriate manner, check (this is my weapon, this is my gun, this one's for fighting...)
2) Waving it around so the laser sweeps over your audience members causing extreme discomfort, check.
3) "Hauer...was disabled by a stroke a few years ago and can be unsteady." Physically unfit to carry, check.
4) "He isn't a law enforcement official." Not a LEO, just fantasizes saving the day by bolting in with guns blazing, or so frightened of getting "attacked" by the hoards of [homeless/non-white/youths], he only feels safe with his Glock tucked into his pants, check.
5) "He carries the loaded 9-millimeter Glock in a holster into state buildings, an apparent violation of state law barring state employees from bringing weapons to the workplace..." Flagrant disregard for state law CONCERNING LOADED WEAPONS, check.

This individual fails the test for being a responsible gun owner in every way, shape or form. There is no way on Shiva's Tan Earth that he should be allowed anywhere near a weapon, except on a licensed firing range, and then only when closely supervised.

If Old Man Tard tried that shiat in a room full of Army brass, that would've been all she wrote.

Kiriyama9000: What a total asshat. I hope by some wholly unlikely event that he loses his job, but he won't.
Thankfully, he did at least remember not to put his finger on the trigger.

As a gun owner, it's one's responsibility to abide be these rules at all time.
1. Treat every firearm as if it is loaded.
2. Never point the firearm at anything you're not willing to destroy.
3. Know your target and what lies beyond it.
4. Keep your finger off of the trigger until ready to fire.

You can't legislate responsibility; even to a government stooge hired by another government stooge.


Didn't read article, figured some "Fed" forgot to practice trigger discipline.

I know 10 year olds in AZ, who probably practice firearm safety better than NY "Feds"................Probably better shots too..

Real story 1: Active duty during the Greater Southeast Asian Wargames.
Worked in a Secure Area where the President would not be allowed without escort.
A Fleet Admiral was making the rounds.
Stopped by access point and asked the Fleet Marine (3 tours in country.) about things etc.
Started to walk away. turned around and asked the Marine "Son, what would have done if I had tried to force my way in?"
To which Sgt Marine answered, "Sir, with all due respect, I would have broken your farking neck with my bare hands".
Admiral replied, "Keep up the good work, Marine".

Real story 2: While on active duty a troop that would later be in the same National Guard Military Unit with me, was standing post on a Secure Area where the President couldn't go without an escort.
Area was approached by a group of drunken junior officers.
They decide to mess with my buddy.
Ignoring the signs that specifically declare that "There will be no warnings! Deadly force is authorized! Keep out!"
Figuring that the signs did not apply to him, one of said drunk junior officers attempted to climb the security fence.
My friend shot him,
In the ass.
At the court martial for disobedience of direct orders, my friend was asked why he did not kill the officer.
He explained that shooting and killing the base commanders Son might be considered impolitic.
Took him forever to get passed Sgt.
The officer was cashiered.

So how long ago did this talking point come out?  Was it on a memo?  I seem to hear this mollifying comment a lot in the last year or so.  It is reassuring, except in the several instances where it isn't true.

I'm quite sure when it comes to that, gun owners can count on you to object.

You can pretty much put anyone who has managed to acquire the mythical New York City handgun carry permit into a class of entitled elitist douchebags entirely separate from any other category of human beings.

^ ^ ^ ^ T H I S ^ ^ ^ ^

Unless you are rich or politically connected you will not get a permit for carry in NY.
It is, in fact, so difficult to even gt a target/range permit it is completely off-putting in process.
And they will find any picayune thing to fail the application.


Basically if you can get one, you don't need one, because it mean's you're also wealthy and connected enough to have armed guards.

Kinda funny you should mention that, since the gun grabby libs love to go on about "only trained professionals"(such as the guy pictured) having guns.

Between this, the thread with the cops who shot the teenager because they "didn't have time", the California cop that went off the deep end, the BART security guard, and the Ohio cop who shot a teenager who had been in a terrible car accident because he "didn't want to get messy", I think the LEO record on guns isn't that great right now.

So if you want to talk about disarming the American people AND the police, I might take it seriously.

Yes, It's a sensitive issue for you. I understand you're ashamed that your fellow nuts keep making you look like fools. After all, nobody on FARK ever mentions party affiliation when a Republican does something asinine.

Douchebag.  Not surprisingly a state of NY appointee.  The City is where all the threat is, and they're the ones with the money, the capability, the jurisdiction, and the qualifications to deal with it seriously.  The state just hangs around in Albany and acts like idiots.

So lemme get this straight: He violates state law on a daily basis by bringing his handgun with him into the state office buildings; everyone knows about it, and nobody says anything?  Normal.

Dick. Motherfarking. Cheney. Not that I needed to cite any actual incident--I merely said that it was equally as likely to happen at some point.

And don't you dare attempt to classify me as belonging to any political party. Unlike those who call themselves "Republicans," "Democrats," "libertarians," and "Tea Partiers," I actually have a functioning brain. You're just gleefully happy that someone appointed by your political enemy--or, rather, the political enemy of the guys who have their hands ever, ever so firmly wedged up your ass--has done something stupid. Meanwhile, politicians of all stripes have done stupid shiat, but you can't be bothered to acknowledge that it happens on all sides. So shut the fark up and sit down you inbred piece of horse jizz.
