Anti-Gun Sheriff Negligently Shoots Self:
Mike Johnstone, an Iowa sheriff infamous for pushing the anti-gun lie that “shall issue” concealed carry will lead to “wild-west” shootouts, has managed to Glockify himself. .....
... Johnstone removed the magazine from his pistol but failed to do a chamber check before squeezing the trigger as part of the Glock design’s standard takedown process.... Thereby violating at least TWO rules of Gun Safety .... Jeez, Mike, don't you know better than to point the gun at yourself when you drop the freakin' HAMMER*? IDJIT!
* yes, I know it's a striker in a Glock.
However, the article goes on to demonstrate Bob Owens' clear comprehension about LEO gun-handling standards:
The general public shares the common belief that law enforcement officers are highly-trained firearms experts. While there are indeed some incredibly talented shooters in law enforcement, the vast majority of patrol officers and deputies simply aren’t “gun people,” and aren’t typically as skilled as serious concealed carriers.
(Which reminds me, I haven't been to the range all week and I still need more work on "familiarity" of that damn KelTek P3AT!)
