Crime and PunishmentHandguns Perhaps the Stupidest TV Report on Guns In the History of the World, Ever By Robert Farago - March 23, 2013 43 Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Email ◀Previous Post Next Post▶ I’m sure there’ve been more inane reports on firearms on TV news. I just can’t remember seeing one. ◀Previous Post Next Post▶ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Holiday Holdup Crews Hitting Chicagoans in Waves of Armed Robberies Known Wolf Redux: Colorado Springs Shooter Was on FBI Radar, Prosecutor Dropped Case Despite Threats, 100 lbs. of Explosives The Gun Ban Industry Works Daily to Keep Women Vulnerable to Domestic Violence 43 COMMENTS This could almost be a modern art piece on the lack of content in modern reporting. “Fluxx piece” doesn’t even begin to cover it Reply Oy! So many things going on (wrongly) there. Reply OH MY GOD, A 25 CAL? HOW THE HELL IS THAT LEGAL? THAT COULD PRETTY MUCH BLOW A TANK APART. Reply Yeah, I mean 25 is bigger than 9, right? Reply Lets not forget it can blow up railroads as well! Reply Where’s the shoulder thing that goes up?! It allows for deadly and swiss-watch accurate firing from the hip!! Why is there no thumbs-up button for these comments?! Reply Almost 3 times larger, by my reckoning. Reply What’s the problem with shooting someone that is lunging at you? Reply In and of itself, nothing. He was also stabbed 29 times and his throat was slit. Possibly a tad excessive… Reply and premeditated. He just got out of the shower, was nekid and had just dumped her for another gal. Reply I find it difficult to believe that anyone could fail to understand that pressing the trigger of a loaded firearm causes it to fire given that it is precisely what they’re explicitly designed to do. Reply while i always like members of the media shown actually testing guns, her trigger control control needs help. Yes, i know she said its unloaded. Still, don’t wave it around like that with you finger there. Reply Well, she did at least keep it pointed in a safe-ish direction throughout. Reply No excuse. It’s exactly that error that combines with, say, improperly clearing the weapon that results in a negligent discharge. Reply People seem to forget the ALWAYS TREAT IT LIKE ITS LOADED STUPID. I added the stupid part fyi. At one point she had both fingers on the trigger. Two negatives make a posative, right? Reply “Two negatives make a positive, right?” Only if you’re leaning backward at the moment of discharge. Reply It was almost as if she kept saying it was unloaded to justify her finger on the trigger. Could it really happen that way she asks? Sure, if she handled it like the reporter. Reply Was this particular report lacking any meaningful information? I guess so. But I’m not sure how that differs from 99% of the stuff on the news. Ever watch the reporting of an airplane crash? Same lack of meaningful information and lots of misinformation. Reply I only watch TV news to see what’s happening on American Idol. Reply Definitely Pulitzer prize material. Reply Yeah, she blew the lid off of that story. Reply I liked the instructor. We shouldn’t be too hard on the reporter. It can’t be easy trying to be a serious journalist all the while knowing that you had to raid your mother’s pantsuit stash from the 70’s in order to get dressed that morning. Reply Was there a point to that story? If so, the guy from the range pretty much debunked it. So, why air it at all? Reply Because it gets or keeps ratings up. That is all that news media cares about. Reply Love her overwrought, jacked up interview style. Give us a break sister. Kept waiting for that “unloaded” gun to go off while she was waving it around with her finger on the trigger. iDIoT Reply That hallmark style is ALL Jane Sanchez, ALL the time. Even off air, I suspect. Nancy Grace Junior. Reply I loved where they showed her firing it. Leaning back as far as possible and visibly displeased when the gun fired, with a look on her face that said, “eww, guns! Icky!” Reply On another note: Autoplay is bullshit. Reply Word. Auto play videos do NOT belong on the main page. Reply Mine didn’t auto play? O.O Reply This news story was especially helpful in illustrating that the sole qualification to be a TV news reporter is complete, utter, airheaded stupidity. Reply That range looks like a dump. Reply Sadly representative of several ranges I’ve seen when visiting family on the east coast. Makes me appreciate well lit, properly ventilated ranges all the more when I’m back home. Reply I might go to that range…but only to take a dump while on my way to a REAL range! Reply More evidence for my hypothesis that only criminals have .25’s Reply Was she trying to be the female Geraldo or was it purely accidental? Reply I like how his eyes take a long, wary look at her finger on the trigger as he’s telling her that how you can pull the trigger without knowing if you’re startled. That was a big, fat hint, but she missed it completely. Must be all those hair spray fumes. Reply I know two different guys shot by their wives with a .25, one 3 times in the face, I don’t think he even had to stay over night in the hospital. Reply Just because someone works at a gun range doesnt make them an expert…. Reply Has any firearm ever just gone off sitting in a safe or drawer? Funny how they only fire themselves when someone is holding it. Reply Hey Jane, 1984 called and they want their hairstyle back. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
