TTAG Daily Digest: Everytown Gets it Backwards, Large Capacity Cartridges and Jim Almighty

Anti-Gun Group Tweets a Photo of a Gun…That’s Loaded Backwards – No, smart ass, it wasn’t an HK . . .

Everytown For Gun Safety, an anti-gun activist group known for posting all kinds of false stats about gun violence in an effort to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment rights, tweeted a Newsweek article alleging that arming teachers would somehow make minority children in urban schools “less safe.”

Officer who fatally shot Justine Damond charged with murder, turns himself in – Minneapolis’s police chief was fired after the shooting . . .

Damond was shot July 15, minutes after calling 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. The 40-year-old life coach’s death drew international attention, cost the police chief her job and forced major revisions to the department’s policy on body cameras.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman was scheduled to discuss charges Tuesday afternoon.

(Officer Mohamed) Noor, a 32-year-old Somali-American, has not talked publicly about the case and declined to be interviewed by state investigators.

In a statement Tuesday, Damond’s family praised the charges, calling them “one step toward justice.”

City of Richmond School Safety Resolution: Ban ‘Large-Capacity Ammunition Cartridges’ – They really have no f-ing idea what they’re talking about . . .

A proposed City of Richmond School Safety resolution asks Congress to ban “large-capacity ammunition cartridges.”

The proposed resolution also calls on Congress to “ban the manufacture, sale, purchase, possession, and use of assault weapons.”

It also asks to implement “universal background checks.” Such checks would require a background check for a private sale just like the background check currently required for a retail purchase. Ironically, almost every high-profile firearm-based attacker acquires his or her gun via background checks at retail sales, so such an expansion would do nothing to prevent future attacks.

Lacey Township School District revises policy banning guns outside of school – Punching back at zero tolerance stupidity . . .

The Ocean County school district has revised a policy that banned students from having guns outside of school.

The policy had said Lacey students could be punished for having weapons “on or off school grounds.” It now states students cannot bring weapons to school or on a bus.

The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs had threatened to sue the district over the policy. That came amid reports that two students had been suspended for posting a picture of guns at a shooting range.

Island NRA benefit cancelled by The Vanderbilt – The other-ing of guns and gun owners continues apace . . .

The annual Staten Island Friends of the NRA fundraiser at The Vanderbilt has been cancelled, said Mark Tranchina, owner of the venue in South Beach.

Tranchina declined to comment further about the decision to cancel to fundraiser.

The fundraiser was scheduled to take place in September.

The event was cancelled after borough Democrats and others expressed outrage, citing the Feb. 14 shooting in Parkland, Fla., and the number of unfounded gun threats on Staten Island.

Never been seen befoa!

    Yet another advantage of revolvers over pistols, even the brainiacs at Newsweek can figure out which way the cartridges go.

    1. avatar CarlosT says:

      There’s no evidence of that.

      1. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

        OK, point conceded, maybe the brainiacs at Newsweek could be stumped by that, but even a dyslexic monkey could figure out which way the cartridges go in a revolver.

        1. avatar Cliff H says:

          But .357 and .38 revolvers can also take 9mm – backwards,

    2. avatar Frank says:

      Thats assuming they can open the cylinder on a double action, or find the loading gate on a single action.

      Even then, i think you can drop 45acp into a colt saa backwards.

    3. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

      Frank, I believe you’re right, but Cliff is wrong. A .357 has a straight wall at .379″ while a 9 mm tapers from .380″ at the neck to .391″ at the base. Since I have both, I checked and you can’t insert the 9 backwards. You can insert it forwards, but it won’t go in all the way and you won’t be able to close the cylinder. On the other hand the ACP has a rim diameter of .480″ that matches the base/neck diameter of the Colt. Both the 9 and the ACP are shorter loaded than the .357/.45 cases so they would fit if the 9 wasn’t too fat. I don’t have any .45s so I can’t test it but the ACP should fit right in.

      Anyway, dyslexic monkeys know enough to pick the right cartridge, although they have been known to confuse .357 magnum with .375 H&H. You’re definitely not fitting the H&H in a revolver though.

      1. avatar Jeff K says:

        .380 ACP does fit backwards in a 38/357 revolver though.

        1. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

          Yep. .374″<.379".

  2. avatar W says:

    Stay frosty, Austin. You’ll bag this clown.

    1. avatar Green Mtn. Boy says:

      Gee just hours latter,4:30 am and suspect reported dead on the side of a Austin freeway.

    2. avatar Mike Betts says:

      Yep, he’s bagged, alright. Probably mopped and sponged, too.

  3. avatar Adamanter says:

    Ban large capacity dumbness, we’d sweep aside 97+ percent of the inept bozos in public office.

    1. avatar Sam says:

      We need to ban assault idiots too.

  4. avatar barnbwt says:

    Wait, are they claiming their kids are doing things that would cause their teachers to use lethal force upon them?

    Or are they so goddam racist, they truly think that white people are only held back from randomly killing the ‘black and brown’ around them every day because of the lack of a gun in their hands?

    Or that handguns possess the wielder and cause them to become racist and randomly fire at ‘black and brown’ around them?

    Or are white childrens simply bulletproof by dint of their priviledge?

    I know they gotta make everything about race, being racist and all, but this makes no sense on any level (again, because they’re racist).

    Last but not least; how often is a ‘black or brown’ kid killed in a mass school shooting (i.e. not a gang/drug/robbery shooting)? The student demographics at most of these events seem to be white, unless I’m mistaken. Which mostly agrees with them being the majority population, and these events generally happening at random (with some selection bias for places like Parkland where violent crazies go ignored for years by authorities)

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      The ones that get all the *press* are when the white kiddies are killed.

      Note the lack of press about Baltimore, Chicago, Oakland, etc…

  5. avatar Nanashi says:

    “large-capacity ammunition cartridges.”

    Duplex rounds and birdshot, the scariest of all firearms cartridges…

    1. avatar Cloudbuster says:

      Birdshot: Hundreds — HUNDREDS!! — of individual rounds in a single cartridge!

    2. avatar M says:

      At Apature Science we use a pattened system to fire the whole bullet! That’s 60% more bullet per bullet!

  6. avatar Green Mtn. Boy says:

    “A proposed City of Richmond School Safety resolution asks Congress to ban “large-capacity ammunition cartridges.”

    Leftist’s do not understand the items they seek to ban so much for truth,facts or nomenclature.

    1. avatar Mark N. says:

      Remember that dim-witted legislator in Colorado who believed that by banning large capacity magazines the supply would dry up because, she assumed, you throw them away when they are empty?

      1. avatar No one of consequence says:

        Well, in fairness, originally the magazines for the M-16 were viewed as disposable.

        But, yeah, I know, she didn’t understand they could be reloaded…

        1. avatar DBLunar says:

          When the M-16 first came out, it was pretty much disposable itself.

      2. avatar Green Mtn. Boy says:

        Can anyone say Total Moron !

  7. avatar P-Dog says:

    Wait, I’m not understanding what Everytown is insinuating. Are they saying black and brown kids are naturally more violent than other kids? Or that liberal teachers are just more violent and racist than other people? Tough call!

  8. avatar Mark N. says:

    Wait a sec here. The woman who tweeted (per Everytown) that arming teachers “would make children, like mine, less safe” also says that her child was shot and killed in 2013. If her child was killed in or at a school, you can’t get any less safe than that, can you?

    1. avatar Defens says:

      If her black child had been killer by a white teacher, he’d be even more deader.

      1. avatar Chadwick says:

        There’s probably a 10mm joke in there somewhere.

  9. avatar DoomGuy says:

    In a world of compromises…

  10. avatar Brian says:

    “large-capacity ammunition cartridges”

    let me translate that for you: word salad

  11. avatar RuralJuror says:

    The rounds aren’t loaded backwards, he’s just using an HK magazine.

    1. avatar Frank says:

      Yes! ive been waiting for these jokes!

    2. avatar Cloudbuster says:

      New Bond Arms Bullpup!

  12. avatar MyName says:

    I can’t find Magical Fire Dust in any of my reloading manuals. Is that an IMR powder, Hodgdon?

    1. avatar Chadwick says:

      I think it’s that powdered alcohol stuff.

      1. avatar Dave H in 08225 says:

        No – it’s powdered Unobtainium.

  13. avatar Jim Bullock says:

    What I do outside of school control is none of your damn business. If you think nothing I do is outside school control, we need to have a different conversation.

    Let me make this easy for you. I’ll be protesting outside your next school board meeting, holding a sign with every single controversial issue represented on it, and my deer rifle slung on my back. Video of the whole thing will be uploaded to the internet in real time, as will my every interaction with you.

    Here’s my lawyer’s contact info. For convenience, you might want to cc everything there from now on… they’re getting a copy anyway.
