TTAG Contest: Finish This Sentence for a CMC Tactical AR-15/10 Trigger

“An Allegheny County assistant district attorney and a uniformed Pittsburgh police officer posed, smiling and toting large guns that were evidence in a case they worked on together, in a Facebook photo with the caption, ‘You should take the plea,'” post-gazette.com reports. The dynamic duo have taken some heat for this unauthorized venture into social media shaming. “Approached by a reporter Friday morning, [AC ADA Julie] Jones briefly smiled, laughed and said . . .

‘We actually…’ She did not complete her thought before saying, ‘I have to go to an appointment,’ and walking away.”

Awww. I hate uncompleted, uh, thoughts. So why don’t you finish Ms. Jones’ sentence for her? The best guess gets a CMC Tactical AR-15/10 trigger.
