Imagine if the first bullet in a cop's chamber were a blank bullet. Would this approach save lives?The rest is a near incoherent rant defeding violent criminals and attacking various police.
What if a police department adopted this approach as standard procedure. Or, better yet, if legislation mandated this requirement for state and local police departments. Would it help save lives?
Police in Britain, Ireland, Norway, Iceland and New Zealand typically do not carry weapons at all when they are patrolling the streets. Surely, crimes in those countries are no less threatening than what we experience in the U.S.
The idea is not to ban guns from the police departments here. Rather, it is to require that the first bullet in the chamber not be a live bullet.
What this article proves is that it doesn't take much to be an 'associate professor' at Marshall Law School.
It also shows that Mr. Acevedo either has absolutely no idea how a gun works and/or wants more police killed in the line of duty.
I'm sure every gunnie who read the first line immediately thought "WTF?!!, that's the stupidest thing I ever heard". Beyond the ignorance on function, just imagine Joe Gangbanger when he figures out that he can charge any cop because the first round will just be a 'BANG'.
This is the state of the media and academia today.
