I really can’t explain this one at all, as it comes with no attribution or sourcing. A law enforcement officer in riot gear bangs the butt of his 40mm grenade launcher on the ground, while looking down the barrel, and the gun goes off and shoots him in the face. Don’t worry, the video’s not graphic. (Or I’m sorry, depending on your predilections.) A better use of the grenade would probably have been to shoot the guy with the camera. At least if he was knocked out, the camera’d be steady . . .
Adam Kokesh pleaded guilty on Wednesday to several charges relating to a July 4th incident where he videotaped himself loading a shotgun at Washington, D.C.’s Freedom Plaza. Kokesh was released from jail, where’s he’s been for nearly four months, pending sentencing in January. Though he had a trial scheduled for November 18th, Kokesh replaced his attorney and then pleaded guilty to carrying a rifle or shotgun, possession of an unregistered firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition. He faces a maximum of more than six years in prison for the combined charges.
A Maryland man is facing charges of 2nd degree murder after shooting and killing a home intruder. The only thing the state of Maryland has against him is that he “didn’t call 911.” The man was in his house, having broken the door in, and was advancing toward him when he was shot, and the state of Maryland thinks he didn’t do enough to avoid the shooting. Apparently the probable cause affidavit is only two pages long, with only two sentences pertaining to the shooting, a fact about which even the presiding judge expressed amazement.
A McLennan County, Texas prosecutor may be in hot water after experiencing a negligent discharge while examining a colleague’s new gun on Monday. First Assistant District Attorney Michael Jarrett was fondling a colleague’s GLOCK .40, and asked if it was loaded. Told it was not, he still racked the slide to check, and in doing so unknowingly loaded a round himself. He then pointed the gun out the window and tickled the trigger, launching a round which buried itself in the brick wall of the adjacent vacant county jail building. “I was being extremely safe,” Jarrett said. “I inspected the gun even after I was told it was not loaded, but it was just an unfortunate accident.” Once again, I find that other people have different definitions of words than I do.
Richard Ryan puts away the Barrett .50 for awhile and attacks an iPad Air with a KWA MP7A1 airsoft rifle, after performing his standard dirt, concrete, & water drop tests. The dirt test absolutely wrecks it, suprisingly. Eventually he puts away the childish things and pulls the .50 back out for some ridiculous slow-mo, including his trademark “edge-on” shots. The concluding rips at 5:10 might be the best thing I’ve seen from him.
