You'd think gun safety would be like first day instruction.

I guess it's more like how to turn off your body cam covertly

I feel safer already

Cop humor.

All I know is that if a "friend" of mine pointed a gun at me and pulled the trigger and all it did was go click we would no longer be friends and I'd probably sucker punch him in the back of the head as I left.

Assume every gun is loaded.
Isn't that, like, rule #1?
 
2022-12-05 12:07:30 PM  
In what way, shape or form is pointing a gun at someone's chest and pulling the trigger is a joke? Shouldn't you always assume a gun is loaded?

Some people really shouldn't be around deadly weapons

His roomate was charged with "manslaughter". What in the hell is so funny about killing your friend?

When their entertainment is murder, what do you think they're going to be like on the job?  Especially when murdering white cops is entertainment, and murdering black/brown/trans people is their job.

"Manslaughter", my ass.  Cops should be held to a higher standard, seeing as how they're such brave professionals who fully understand the danger, unlike the rest of us plebs.

Rules don't apply to cops, citiizen.

Now move along unless you want a hardwood shampoo.

My brother once did that to me.

Problem was, the gun wasn't unloaded.

So I'm doubled-over in pain, bleeding profusely, with him yelling at me to "Stop Faking!".

Then he served two years in the US Army and got a lot better about gun safety.

I guess too many things "go without saying", and really need to be covered in training sessions.

I lol'd.
 
2022-12-05 1:10:03 PM  
Clearly cops just need more training.

Fist rule of responsible gun ownership. Don't point it at anyone for any reason ever. Except in self defense.
You'd think a cop would know that, I expect too much apparently.

Kind of hard to fake the noise a fired bullet makes.

Rule two "even if you know it's not treat it like it is"
 
2022-12-05 1:11:03 PM  
I've got a good friend who lost one of his sons at a house party.

It was almost exactly the same scenario.  Some kid pointed an 'unloaded' pistol at him (as a joke) and pulled the trigger.  It wasn't unloaded.


Terrible.
 
2022-12-05 1:11:23 PM  
No, just put it down as murder. A cop, of all people, will know the rules of gun safety: always assume the gun is loaded, never point it at anything you don't want dead, keep your finger away from the trigger.

It's not "an accident", it's murder.
 
2022-12-05 1:11:33 PM  
Think about how stupid teenagers are.

Then realize males in their early twenties aren't much different.
 
2022-12-05 1:11:40 PM  
At least that idiot won't be a cop.

Cops are taught it's better to shoot than be shot.

Exile On Beale Street: That wasn't an "accident".


My favorite US Army Drill Sgt told me this once.

"There's no such thing as an accident or an excuse"


words I still live by today.
 
2022-12-05 1:13:11 PM  
It's the unloaded ones that always kill you.

Negligence plain and simple. There are no accidents when it comes to guns.
 
2022-12-05 1:14:06 PM  
instead of aggravated assault, it should be aggravated freedom.

because guns mean freedom just like jesus said

Especially the mouthbreathers with authoritarian fantasies who become cops in the first place.

There is a chant in Mexico used by people protesting that goes "I want to stay in school and get an education so I don't grow up to be a cop".

I'll take things that didn't happen for 500, Alex.

I don't even let my gun humper relation's kids point toy guns at me.  Because there is no such thing as a toy gun.

How is it that cops have devolved into the stupidest people in America?

Seriously - they've become the bottom rung of occupational intellect.

Yes.

Rule #2 is - Always treat it like it is loaded.

Rule #3 is - Never point the weapon at anyone or anything without intent to use it.

This cop was exactly the kind of reckless person who should never possess a firearm.
Sadly, too late for his roomie, now he no longer will.
 
2022-12-05 1:17:57 PM  
He accidently his whole roommate.
 
2022-12-05 1:18:35 PM  
Maybe cops need to keep their booger hooks off the bang button.
 
2022-12-05 1:18:50 PM  
- Treat all firearms as if they were loaded
- Always keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction
- Keep your finger off of the trigger and outside of the guard until you are ready to fire
- Be certain of your target and what is beyond your target
- Never point your firearm at anything that you are not willing to destroy


The officer was trained in the gun safety rules and cannot claim ignorance.  This isn't an accident.  This is murder.
