A Philadelphia police officer then tried to unload the weapon and accidentally discharged it. It's really simple guys. If you don't know how to unload a particular firearm, leave it alone. If you don't pull the trigger, the gun won't discharge. So when you are unloading a firearm keep your finger off the trigger.
To the journalist who wrote this piece. The word you're looking for isn't accidentally. It's negligently. It takes an act of will, and in this case stupidity, to pull the trigger.

Call for ban on sale of gun magazines to children gets massive public support...Gun Magazines = Pornography.
If they aren't at the bottom of the slippery slope they are damn well near it.

\In Wisconsin, a woman heard someone in her house. She texted her housemate to see if was him. It wasn't. She grabbed her gun and called 911. When she saw the masked man carrying pepper spray and he tried to use it on her, she opened fire. It is unknown if she actually hit the evil git, but he did flee. Good thinking and good work on her part.

It replaced this Usagi Yojimbo desktop that I made using Photoshop, a photo I found on the net, and artwork by Stan Sakai of his rabbit ronin. It spent quite a few years staring back at me, and will most likely return to it place of honor eventually.

It is extremely violent, profanity laden, not safe for work or children, and really, really good, but I said that already.
My thanks to James for the link.

IG: White House ‘Made it Impossible’ to Pursue Lead in Fast and Furious ProbeSo at best the IG investigation and report are incomplete and therefore of questionable worth, the White House is still hiding the truth, and Congress still needs to continue their investgation. I still think whitewash is the appropriate description.

- Will Mitt Romney unseal the Fast and Furious documents that President Obama shielded from the public and Congress?
- Will Mitt Romney fully investigate the murder of US Marine & Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, including the BATFE accomplices to his murder who walked those guns into the hands of known criminals?
- Will Mitt Romney fully investigate and prosecute all federal crimes committed as part of the fast and furious scandal including any government officials who broke the law?

The Department’s leadership did not attempt to cover up information or mislead Congress about it.That's for Congress to decide. Not you.

I have only one question and one additional observation at the moment and the observation isn't directly based on the report but a news report on the resignation of an assistant AG.
The question is don't we as the American people deserve to read the entire report? There should be no redaction of this report. The observation is simply that AG Holder is the boss. The report claims his
scapegoats employees, from what I've read about the report, screwed up really big time. That makes him responsible for what happened. So when is he going to accept his responsibility and resign?
of course the answer to the question from the Obama Administration point of view is "WE decide what you need to know lowly peasant."
I also understand the Obama Administration has a problem with asking anyone on their side to accept personal responsibility for anything. Holder is going nowhere until January.
Now I'm just going to sit back and what the commentary and bullshit start flying here and there.

Voluntary, my ass. When no less than five police officers/deputies show up at your door in the middle of the night, ask you to voluntarily come on down town to answer a few questions, handcuff you and stuff you in the back of a patrol car for a ride downtown how do you think a reasonable person is going to interpret that? It's called under arrest buddy. No reasonable person is going to see it any other way, and for what crime?
A probation violation? My ass. Can you spell PRETEXTUAL. The man was arrested not for a possible probation violation but for embarrassing the President of the United States in the UNITED STATES.
President Obama you swore an oath to protect and defend the U. S. Constitution. All of it. Not just the parts that are convenient. When you or your Justice Department instigate shit like this, you violate your oath. You are an oathbreaker, a liar, and unfit to hold the office to which you were you were elected.
Election day can't come quick enough.
UPDATE: OK, apparently he wasn't cuffed but had his hands in his pockets. Makes no difference. He had no choice but to go.

EXCEPT, the alleged film isn't the reason the radical Islamists are rasing hell, commiting murder in the Middle East and attacking our embassies. It's their excuse. If it wasn't the alleged film it would be something else. They hate us. Any excuse will do. When the they do something like apologize for the alleged film or pressure YouTube to pull it you lend credence to the mullah's claim its the reason for the violence and its all our fault anyway. You spit on our constitution. You betray you office and oath. You give aid and comfort to the enemy, as if that's anything new.
Oh, I should give credit where credit is due. Sending the Marines to the embassies was a good thing. Send more.
*I guess what I saw was the trailer. Based on that it really does look like a piece of crap and waste of video. It looked worse than a Uwe Boll film. The protests are the only reason anyone is even giving it any attention and the best way to respond to it is to let it fade into the obscurity it deserves.

Adherents of the religion of peace riot and murder innocents. They murder Americans. They murder representatives of our government. They attack American territory.
What does the current Administration do? The State Department condemns those who hurt the feelings of members of the religion of peace. They apologize? In years past, the Marines would be landing about now.
Does anyone else have this sense of deja vu?

"We found no evidence in Operation Fast and Furious that the ATF or the (U.S. attorney's office) attempted at any point during the investigation to balance the risks to the public safety against the long-term benefits of identifying trafficking networks and participants," the draft report says.It's easy to prove your thesis if your mind has already been made up your mind before you start investigating.
She had been told by the doctor to walk once the stitches came out, so she took a walk to see Lurlene Leary, a member of the same church that Mom attended. She said when she got to the house a young man was there getting ready to go out, and she thought he had the prettiest blue eyes. The young man, my Dad, was the Leary's cousin and was staying with them. He was recently home from the CCC and was working nights at a nearby laundry. Mom visited with Lurlene then walked home.
At church the following Sunday, Lurlene told Mom that Owen had asked her to ask if he could take her out on a date. Mom said yes. Nine monyths later, in December of 1941, they were married.
*They remained married until my father's death in 1981. In my mother's heart, they still are.

The deputy reportedly told her, “I’m sorry, you startled me,” Morgan said.I'm sorry, that ain't good enough. Keep your finger off the trigger and you won't accidentally pull it when someone frightens you which likely to happen when you're in somebody's backyard without their knowledge.

Cops believe the gun accidentally discharged.In any event, when a police officer has his finger on the trigger and "the gun" unintentionally goes off, it's negligence not accident.
Maybe Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and his staff should read this.

Extreme Sexism At Walmart: Woman Can’t Buy Big GunsThat just boggles the mind. The clerk wouldn't sell her the shotgun because he thought it was too much gun for her, therefore she must be a straw buyer? That's kinda like saying piss is yellow, therefore the sky is blue. A genius we have here.

The draft language of the Democrats' 2012 platform — set for a final vote this week in Charlotte, N.C. — argues that current safeguards protecting the public against gun violence are insufficient and urges "an honest and open conversation about firearms."That would require that gun control advocates be honest and open. You aren't, so no.
The document also calls for "reasonable regulation" governing guns, including laws banning assault weapons and requiring all gun sellers — not just licensed dealers — to perform background checks on potential buyers.

UPDATE: The couple will not be charged, but who gives them the three days of their life they wasted in "custody" while the police and courts made their decision. It's still f$%ked up. Oh, do they get their shotgun back?
He wasn't getting past me. My wife and daughter were behind me.In Indianapolis, a homeowner, his wife, and five year old daughter, were awakened in the early hours of the morning by someone kicking in the back door. The homeowner grabbed his gun and found a burglar standing in his living room. The burglar lunged at the homeowner and got shot for his trouble. The family is fine. The robber is in the hospital awaiting charges.
THIS is the practical application of our right to keep and bear arms.

By Christmas Day my dad was back in the United States waiting for discharge at Fort Bragg. Dad got impatient and went AWOL to see mom. Turned out if he had waited a few hours he'd have been free and clear. Instead they made him wait another week.
