Open Carry Black Lives Matter Protestor Has Negligent Discharge, Shoots Himself in the Foot [VIDEO]

We missed this when it happened last week. This video was from a protest that took place in Florissant, Missouri (a St. Louis suburb just north of Ferguson in St. Louis County).

An open carrying protestor (perfectly legal in Missouri) obviously didn’t know enough to keep his finger off the trigger, let alone engage the safety on his AR pistol. When he touched off a negligent discharge with a large crowd around him, the round went through his right foot.


The shot caused immediate panic and confusion that was quickly brought under control by the police. The injured protester was taken into custody and given first aid.

There are a lot of photographs of the incident at the link above. The police officers reacted quickly and with admirable restraint. Only one officer can be seen with a weapon drawn (and it’s pointed at the ground, finger off the trigger).

This could have resulted in something much, much worse.

      I’m really surprised that Mrs. Attorney (from the St. Louis Cul De Sac Commandos) didn’t ND into someone’s cranium, the way she was waving her PPK around with her finger constantly on the trigger.

      1. avatar Rick the Bear says:

        Fortunately for her, the PPK has a 500 pound DA trigger.

        OK, I _may_ be exaggerating. ;~)

          Beat me to it.

        2. avatar jwm says:

          I had the older PP model in .32 acp. Even with the safety off you had to work at making it go boom. Certainly safer with finger on trigger than my Glock.

        3. avatar Mike says:

          500 pounds, wow. you much have shot the custom trigger version. First time I shot mine I thought the safety was on.

        4. avatar andrewinVA says:

          Pick up a surplus P64. It’ll make that PPK feel like a race gun

        5. avatar Aaron says:

          The P-64 is only 18lbs on double action… heavy, yes… but they did right… mama attorney needs a bit more training…

        At least they are not all talk.

      4. avatar William Howard says:

        The HAMMER was down – either because the SAFETY was on or at least in DOUBLE ACTION. IMPOSSIBLE to tell if there was even a round in the chamber, unless holding the gun. The trigger pull from DA is about 12#, and very unlikely to discharge unless a FIRM pull on the trigger. IF the hammer was BACK, the trigger pull is more like 4#. THE PPK/S is a VERY safe pistol.

        1. avatar c says:

          If you are holding a gun in front of a mob and it is unloaded and something happens to you it’s your own damned fault. Load it or leave it in the house. If you pull it be ready to use it. Aftter you shoot the anarchist you might want to find out who was behind his becoming an anarchist so you can thank them for killing the young person. Ten bucks says it’s a communist “liberal domocrat”.

        2. avatar BenjiMac says:

          On my PPK/S, it’s 18 pounds, not just the 12 pounds typical for a DA revolver. Most women cannot pull the trigger. (My daughter is an exception!)

        3. avatar Bemused Berserker says:

          As someone who carried a PPK/S in .380 for 25 years, I don’t know anyone who has one with an 18 lb DA trigger pull. Mine is just under 11 lbs, on my Lyman trigger scale. SA is sitting at 4.1 lbs. No trigger work was ever performed. Still, one of the most accurate guns I own. Only reason it was retired for CC use, was my aging eyes could no longer see the front sight in low light conditions.

      5. avatar Sgt. Preston says:

        Wrong story here. The moron mis-handling the firearm should be ashamed. His incompetence knows no bounds. Glad it was HIS foot that he hit, rather than an innocent civilian.

          Well, “black lives matter,” but I guess BLACK FEET don’t matter. ……….. Don’t tell the Indians.

        It might occur to you at some point that your attempts to prove your inherent weapons handling capabilities are not working out. Instead, you just come across as an asshole.

      7. avatar Judy says:

        Don’t forget to mention she would be inside eating dinner if not for a mob of lawless thugs
        threatening her, her family, their dog, their property, but I’m sure it was all her fault because she’s white.

      8. avatar BC says:

        See I don’t think it was a Walther. I’d guess a Jennings. The Walther’s extractor isn’t that long and the rear of the slide is more angled.

        1. avatar Sian says:

          The boys all but confirmed it was a Jimenez.

          Isn’t the point of having a burner to not let anyone see you with it?

      9. avatar Survivormann99 says:

        “I’m really surprised that Mrs. Attorney (from the St. Louis Cul De Sac Commandos) didn’t ND into someone’s cranium…” Given the crowd in front of her, are you saying that would have been a bad thing? I’m confused.

      10. avatar Tom says:

        I thought the same thing, especially in some still photos showing her eyes ! MIghty reckless gun handling I thought. Thankfully, no one got stupid and tried to it away from her. I am reading that the DA in that city is looking into it. I am not sure if breaking into a private compound is socially acceptable by that DA or not. Perhaps a protest march to her home , where her family lives would be instructive .We shall see.

  2. avatar TheBSonTTAG says:

    So these are the “new” gun owners y’all keep talking about.

    We have nothing to worry about, with new owners like this gun rights should be secure for generations. Especially now that Trump has the courts on board with gun rights unless they happen to be the Supreme Court or any US court for that matter.

    1. avatar California Richard says:

      I’d say about 20% of “gang shootings” are ND’s. These type of people have been around for a long time. Do a Youtube search and you’ll see all kinds of “professional” gun handlers ND’ing. It’s the same for the “I am the only person professional enough” police: 20% of officer involved firearm discharges are ND’s.

      1. avatar Tom says:

        What’s an , ND ? I know what an AD is .

        1. avatar DinWA says:

          “Negligent Discharge”, a more accurate term than “Accidental Discharge”.

    2. avatar Dude says:

      They’re arming up because they’ve identified the enemy that’s wiping out the black population as the police. Math isn’t their strong suit.

      1. avatar mousekiller says:

        it is apparent that so many posters have never been in a situation of potential mayhem armed untrained rioters. I too would have my finger on the trigger. As 99 % of civilians with guns have never been in combat nor any situation where their life may be at risk in the blink of an eye.Those halfwit rioters have set the standard. Ignorant, untrained, easily led by other stupid half wits and absolutely no training. They are to me cannon fodder and are slow moving targets.

        1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          Those halfwit rioters have set the standard. Ignorant, untrained, easily led by other stupid half wits and absolutely no training.

          Those morons deserve the coining of a new label… How about “NO”-wit rioters?

        2. avatar Stan d. Upnow says:

          If the police or Natl. Guard had gone in and dropped a few dozen of them at the outset, we never would have witnessed the subversive mayhem that we did. PC restraint will be our undoing.

        3. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “If the police or Natl. Guard had gone in and dropped a few dozen of them at the outset, we never would have witnessed the subversive mayhem that we did.”

          Government in England tried that.

          Contending with insurgencies is not simple surgery. The only way to deal with insurgents is complete annihilation, which is considered most impolite in better circles. Once the Genie is out o the bottle, there are no assurances of any sort.

          In our own revolution, the majority (loyalists) were rather timid, hoping the authorities could make the revolutionists go away. As in so many similar situations, the quiet majority sat on the sidelines, hoping nothing bad would happen to them. Only a political counter-insurgency of the majority of Americans, who do not support the insurgents, has a chance to put things right again.

          If the overall population is not inflamed enough to put an end to the insurgents, then the revolution will bring what revolution generally brings (our to civil wars being exceptions).

        2. avatar Montana Actual says:

          You get respect here? No. You just think you do. Random commentators randomly agreeing with some things you say, is not respect. It’s called conversation, and I get just as much as you do. K?

        Outright guffaw here. With a harrumph tossed in.

      2. avatar Sam I Am says:

        “Wry smile.”

        Yes. I, being superior in every way, carry my Beretta Neos .22LR inside my belt, empty chamber, safety on, magazine in left front pocket. Ain’t gonna have no accidental shooting drawing from my belt.

        1. avatar LifeSavor says:

          Sam I Am,

          Holster? or gangster style?

        2. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “Holster? or gangster style?”

          On regular days, Neos between belt and pants, crossdraw.

          On days I am drinking virus beer, stuffed inside pants, crossdraw.

          Holsters are for weenies.

        3. avatar jwm says:

          Sam is Gangsta.

        4. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “Sam is Gangsta.”

          Only indoors. I don’t dare travel outside with the Neos. Although it looks like a space gun (really cool) to me, I know it looks really stupid to normal people when it is stuffed into a pocket.

        5. avatar Dude says:

          As if you’ll remember to take that safety off in an emergency. 😉

        6. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “As if you’ll remember to take that safety off in an emergency. ”

          Absolutely. Right after I put the magazine in the handle, uuuhh, grip. With no round in the chamber, no mag in the pistol, completely immune from ND while carrying.

        7. avatar I Haz A Question says:


          If you train enough, it all becomes muscle memory and you’ll act without needing to “remember”.

        8. avatar Dude says:

          Haz, I was just being sarcastic. The safety would be the least of the training issues when you carry like that. 😉

        9. avatar I Haz A Question says:

          Gotcha. FWIW, if I ever need to carry “appendix” IWB, I would not have my gat chambered. I prize my jewels too much to test my skills that recklessly. I train to draw and put one round on target within 1.0 seconds (if two rounds, then 1.5). Training with “chamber empty” draw adds only a fraction of a second for racking the slide.

        10. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “Training with “chamber empty” draw adds only a fraction of a second for racking the slide.” It is getting the mag out of the front pocket and properly seated that requires intensive practice. The problem there is remembering which front pocket has the car keys, and which has the mag.

        11. avatar Dude says:

          If your magazine is in the pistol rather than your pocket, then you’re cheating.

        12. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “If your magazine is in the pistol rather than your pocket, then you’re cheating.”

        Thinking if the round is contained anywhere in the bullet trap, it was a good shoot.

    WHEN you have people with the brains of a half-rotten turnip carrying weapons , this kind of action is to be expected. this basement dweller got what he deserved ,it is a shame it as not something more important than his foot that got the “reminder” that bad-ass looks can never be better than good firearms training.

    Guns and protests don’t mix. Guns are for self-defense in extreme circumstances. This is the sort of crap that happens when people carry firearms at protests.

    If you insist on carrying a firearm during a protest, carry it concealed.

      its the only nd i readily recall happening during a protest.

      I was always told to lock up a gun in an emotional situation (protest, any argument between friends or family, therapy).

      Getting oneself rilled up and drawing?

      1. avatar Common sense says:

        If you can not keep your cool in an emotional situation you should never carry a weapon , or ever allowed to have a permit. Try growing up!

    3. avatar Kirk says:

      I tend to disagree. I remember the anti lockdown protests in MI. Armed protesters probably kept the cops out of it and kept everyone on their best behavior

      1. avatar tdiinva says:

        Very doubtful. You can bet there were SWAT snipers present who could have taken them out at any time.

      2. avatar Jimmy Beam says:

        Your naivete is stunning. There were undercover cops and Feds all throughout the protest crowd, not to mention snipers on nearby rooftops. They would have opened up the second some boogaloo boi got too excited. And then there are the Feds scanning cell phones within the entire area, and snapping photos of every wannabe revolutionary too fat for his camo vest and clutching a cheap AR-15.

        In the past protests may have been worth it, but they aren’t now.

        1. avatar Ryno says:

          And those protests were safer for both sides. The problem here is that anyone stupid enough to blend in with these morons wouldn’t me accepted into the academy. And for the record, I’ve met some REALLY dumb cops.

          Whether or not THOSE particular protests were warranted, justified or smart is an argument well beyond the scope of this smart ass remark, and will not be addressed at this time.

        Re:lockdown protesters I read so many comments from liberals that if those guys were black they would be shot for sure.Now here you actually have a situation where the guy actually discharged his weapon in front of a bunch of policeman and they do nothing but come to his aid You will never see this event on your television or newspaper

    BTW, it wasn’t reported widely, the BLM criminals that broke into the private neighborhood in St. Louis had weapons, an AK-47 by accounts on the ground, media with security personnel. I trust that maybe the security personnel identified it correctly, not the media. So much for any debates the home owners weren’t justified. Intent, opportunity and capability were all present, while on private property.
