BLM Protestor ‘Accidentally’ Fires Gun, No Arrest Made, No Charges

You’re probably familiar with what appears to have been an Antifa member shooting and killing a man at a Trump rally in Portland, Oregon — something that hasn’t really been covered fervently by the mainstream media…surprise, surprise. But that wasn’t the only round fired at a protest yesterday.

At a BLM protest in Carson City, Nevada a protestor “accidentally” fired his rifle and has, thus far, gotten away with it.

CarsonNOW.org reports:

According to Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong, an accidental misfire of a rifle occurred today at around 5 p.m. in front of the Nevada State Legislature in Carson City following a Black Lives Matter rally.

The rally had ended previously and there was a small group of Black Lives Matter protesters left in the area, according to Furlong. One BLM protestor had an AK-47 style weapon on his shoulder, and when he removed it from his shoulder, one shot went off into the air.

Deputies went to the area and immediately recognized it had been an accident and took the gun from the protestor, who also concurred it had been an accident. The protestor was not cited or arrested, but charges may follow from the DA after an investigative report is made.

What goes up must come down. Gravity is funny that way.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong had something to say about how guns are fired:

The sheriff wants to remind everyone that bringing loaded weapons to a protest is dangerous, and people should use caution while open carrying and always make sure their safety is on, or leave their weapons…unloaded.

“Please, guns have accidents,” said Furlong. “An accident can turn into a tragedy in two seconds. We were very fortunate today.”

“Guns have accidents”? Is Furlong is saying the AK-47 pulled its own trigger?

What do you think the odds are this will end with charges being filed by the DA? More importantly, do you think it would have been brushed off if the shot fired had come not from a BLM protestor but, say, from someone guarding a business from rioters and looters?

Questions abound.

      Everyone knows that guns can “misfire” and “just go off”. That’s what makes them so dangerous. Just handling a gun or having one in your house means that it might go off and hurt someone. Guns are just accidents waiting to happen. Guns are meant to kill and this is why civil people shouldn’t have access to guns. //sarc//

        That’s why you keep them locked up in safes; so they can’t sneak out at night and party hardy.

      2. avatar Richard B Jones says:

        Yes. That’s why gun museums, gun stores, and shooting facilities have the highest rate of guns “accidentally” going off. All those guns just lying around waiting to go off. Scary. Don’t forget the danger of guns in bedside tables, glove boxes, gun safes, closet shelves, tool boxes, backpacks, encased in holsters. Yup, going off all the time.

        1. avatar LarryinTX says:

          And despite the Sheriff’s advice, I have it on good authority they can sometimes load themselves, too! The only safe way to deal with them is to remain at the range at all times, shooting up box after box of ammo until the barrel melts.

  1. avatar Sam I Am says:

    “More importantly, do you think it would have been brushed off if the shot fired had come not from a BLM protestor..?”

    Not even if the bullet had killed someone. “Accidents just happen. Too bad, so sad.”

    1. avatar Miner49er says:

      Negligent discharges occur often, usually with no charges whatsoever.

      No charges in 2006 for Virginia Del. John Reid, R-Henrico, who accidentally fired a gun he was unloading in his office. The bullet struck a bullet-resistant vest hanging on his office door.

      1. avatar Kevin says:

        No need to speculate – There have been negligent discharges at both right-wing rallies (like one to supposedly protect confederate monuments, where a guy shot himself in the leg) and armed BLM marches (there was a fairly recent and similar one, but it was black protester with an AR). I haven’t heard of anyone being charged yet in either case.

    BLM right now is untouchable. It is sad but there are two judicial systems running concurrently. One for BLM and one for the rest of us. Soros has done well inserting do nothing DA’s into America’s criminal justice system. Or should I say do nothing if a preferred party commits a crime.

    This weekend a BLM president in WI said that they need to start killing a white person when a black person is killed. That would be the start of a conflagration. It yet may occur since some of the BLM supporters are not the sharpest knives in the drawer and they might take him seriously.

      If you want the history of BLM, according to CNN, BLM was started in response to the Treyvon Martin killing. so the primary blame falls squarely on Obama and Biden.

      1. avatar anarchyst says:

        BLM was started with blacks and “small hat” types, not unlike the troublemakers who egged on violence during the so-called “civil-rights” demonstrations of the 1950s and 60s.
        Even the NAACP was started and run by the “small hats” until blacks within the organization finally “got smart” and booted the “small hats” out.
        The “small hats” are of a bolshevik communist persuasion as well as being of the “chosen” tribe and have been behind every instance of politicized violence for a long time.

        I would also add that the Obama administration padded in so many Fortune 500 executive positions with Leftists at such an alarming rate that people dryly joked that one only need to stay as an analyst/intern in the West Wing for a month to become a Silicon Valley executive. In case anyone is wondering how American companies turned into dysfunctional woke trash from inside…

        And yet a misfire is a term used to indicate that the round failed to discharge after pulling the trigger. I’m not sure what an accidental misfire is.

        This was a negligent discharge. If the reporter can’t get the terminology correct, how can we trust the rest of the content?

    Let’s just quit the Mexican hat dancing, they have been videotaped and we have heard them say, they will kill white people and Trump supporters and nothing is being done about it except letting them go or all out denying any laws have been broken by police departments and their supervisors.

    Only Glocks have “accidents”. All other guns are subject to “Unintended Discharge” by who holds it failing the four basic rules of gun safety.

    No one knows yet who shot the guy in Portland. So far it’s clear as crystal his bunch was driving around shooting protesters with paint ball and spraying them with bear mace. So, fuck that idiot.

    There are two groups out there wanting to fight each other. They will continue to do so, blaming the other for starting what they both wanted, until this episode of STUPID burns itself out.
    During which what gets drowned out in all this idiotic noise is the clear facts that yes, police brutality and excessive force is a thing, that black people (especially those doing nothing wrong at the time) pay the price of it, that more money needs to go into violence prevention, that cops are over-militarized and yet, even on top of all that, we still need strong and well funded police agencies.

    It’s all out of balance, outta’ whack. But so long as people are shouting each other and the stupidity continues to feed itself from both sides, it continues.

    1. avatar Chief Censor says:

      Patriot Prayer has shot at protesters after they assaulted them with paintball guns and bear mace almost 2 weeks ago. One of their members told people they have guns and they will use them before they went to their cars. They were committing what appears to be felony assault to anyone that approached them or were questing them aggressively. These guys came down to the city in a convoy with intent to harm BLM and Antifa.

      Patriot Prayer member Skylor Noel Jernigan (they claim to be Christian), who fired his handgun twice at the crowd, was arrested and charged with numerous felonies.

      So called (peaceful and big heart) “Jay Bishop,” the now dead Patriot Prayer member, may have been at the little get together when Skylor Jernigan shot at people as he left the parking structure. Also the other Patriot Prayer member who was with Jay when he was shot dead, may have also been there when Skylor committed his violent crimes.

      It look like the Jay Bishop shooting could be successfully argue as self defense in a court of law. Because it sounds and looks like Jay and his fellow member approached the shooter aggressively and Jay was reaching into a holster to get something to attack the shooter with. The audio in the videos sounds as if Jay was saying “right here” (as he reached into a drop leg holster) and the shooter was saying “pull it out.” Jay then pulled out a black object and pointed it at the face of the shooter. The shooter fired two rounds at Jay, striking him in the heart as he was being maced.

      Jay has no right to spray people with bear mace who shout, “we got Trump supporters over here.” That may even be a felony offense. Now people will say bear mace is not a lethal weapon, thus it was murder. However, the shooter can argue Patriot Prayer have said they have guns, they would use them against Antifa and right after saying they had guns they used them on protesters.

      What would gun owners do if a man shouted “right here” as he reached into a drop leg holster to grab an item? Or what if he simply said nothing and reached into a drop leg holster to pull out a dark item and point it at you as he approaches you aggressively? Would you have shot him? Would a cop shot him?

      Keep in mind there has been two Patriot Prayer members that have shot at people in Portland (they were arrested for those shootings) and other gun pulls by members. And they were caught at a the parking structure by police with ARs in cases, they claimed they were not going to commit a terror attack they were simply a quick reaction force if Antifa started shooting at their members.

    I remember reading when white Democrats were accidentally hanging black people all the time. They weren’t arrested either. Those same white democrats made it against the law for a black person to have guns.

    btw
    I watched the facebook live video. The gun owner is a young masked white guy. It appears he had an SKS. It seems having an Negligent Discharge is a thing in NFAC and white BLM members.

    Incidents like this are exactly why I believe a basic skills test should be necessary for both automobiles and firearms.

    And regarding the false notion that BLM protesters somehow get special treatment, here’s a so-called ‘patriot‘ who also was not charged for his negligent discharge.

    “According to the Hanover Evening Sun, a 23-year-old man accidentally shot himself in the thigh near one of the protests, and park rangers accidentally fired the gun again when attempting to take ammunition out of it.

    The man, Benjamin Hornberger of Shippenburg, Pennsylvania, described himself as a “patriot,” according to PennLive. Nearby protesters told the outlet that Hornberger had come to the park to rally against Antifa but was not associated with any particular group.

    According to the Evening Sun, Park officials say he was not inside one of the fenced areas where permitted protesters were stationed, but was taking part in the “First Amendment Protest.”

    According to WPMT, a National Park Service Officer applied a tourniquet that stopped the bleeding and possibly saved Hornberger’s life. An ambulance was called, and he was transported to a local hospital. No charges are expected to be filed, as federal law permits handguns in National Parks.“

    And the last line is especially interesting, it was Barack Hussein Obama who removed Reagan’s restrictions on carrying firearms in national parks and forests.

    Thanks Democrat Obama, for expanding our gun rights!

    Now, can anybody tell me when Republican Trump expanded our gun rights?

    Bump stocks, anyone?

        And I am asking in what material way has Republican Donald Trump expanded our gun rights? Besides banning bump stocks and advocating taking guns away from cutizens and worrying about the courts later.

    2. avatar Someone says:

      As soon as you tell everybody which 2A rights expanding bill landed on Trump’s desk and remained unsigned.
      In USA President is not an imperator. He doesn’t make laws. But you already know that and just twist the truth into pretzels as usual.

      1. avatar Miner49er says:

        “As soon as you tell everybody which 2A rights expanding bill landed on Trump’s desk and remained unsigned.”

        As a courtesy to refresh your memory, I would point out that the Republicans held a majority in both houses of Congress and the presidency from January, 2017 until January 2019. And in that time they did zero to expand your gun rights.

        On the other hand, the Democrats took control of both houses of Congress and the presidency in January 2009 and in the first six months they expanded your gun rights to hundreds of thousands of acres of federal lands, repealing a Ronald Reagan regulation banning guns in National Parks and Forests:

        The Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure (CARD) Act of 2009 is a federal statute passed by the United States Congress and signed by U.S. President Barack Obama on May 22, 2009. It is comprehensive credit card reform legislation that aims “…to establish fair and transparent practices relating to the extension of credit under an open end consumer credit plan, and for other purposes.”[1] The bill was passed with bipartisan support by both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

        Introduced in the House of Representatives as H.R. 627 by Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney D-NY-14 on January 22, 2009

        The bill is introduced into Congress by a Democrat, and signed into law by Democratic president Barack Hussein Obama.

        The relevant portion is Section 512, titled “Protecting Americans From Violent Crime,” was inserted to override a previous federal court decision that held national parks, as federal land, were more or less “gun-free zones” outside of hunting activities in those national parks allowing hunting. To abrogate this prohibition, concerned lawmakers got the provision into the Credit CARD Act. Once it passed, Section 512 established the new law regarding carrying in parks.
        The law establishes primacy of state law in national parks, since they are a different type of federal installation than say, prisons, military bases, courthouses and office buildings.

        Doesn’t it make your tummy feel funny to know that you’ve been jacked by Trump and the GOP for years?

  17. avatar Chief Censor says:

    In Nevada a protester didn’t fire his gun yet was shot down because police saw him with it and there was a shooting that happened earlier separate from the protests. So, I bet the police are much more careful to not murder open carriers again and assume open carriers are criminals.

  18. avatar Elmer Fudd says:

    While it is a rare occurrence, there are circumstances under which firearms can discharge unintentionally without someone pulling the trigger. Just ask the executives at Remington who have had to cope with lawsuits resulting from the safety on their Remington 700 rifles failing to restrain the striker. This is why we have the SECOND LAW OF GUN SAFETY. Don’t point a gun at anyone or anything that you don’t want to shoot, even if you believe that it is unloaded, the safety is on, or it’s only “harmless” birdshot.

    My guess is that this protestor has his AK loaded with a round in the chamber and either left the safety off or the safety was pulled against something that moved it to the fire position. It happens. Then an inadvertent pressure on the trigger caused the gun to fire.

    Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong had something to say about how guns are fired:

    The sheriff wants to remind everyone that bringing loaded weapons to a protest is dangerous, and people should use caution while open carrying and always make sure their safety is on, or leave their weapons…unloaded.

    “Please, guns have accidents,” said Furlong. “An accident can turn into a tragedy in two seconds. We were very fortunate today.”
    That Sheriff must be feeding at the Democratic Trough. Guns do not have accidents -The person handling the weapon has and causes the accident.
