Chicago Cop Shoots Herself @ Nail Salon: Where are all the Liberals calling to ban Off-Duty Cops from Carrying?

LOL! IF they were to be consistent, no?

Via The Truth About Guns.com.

One more reason why most cops shouldn't be armed: even with taxpayer funded training & leeching, they're more liable to hurt themselves, and others. [Of course, I'm being facetious. Or, am I? LOL]

Off-duty cop wounded when her gun accidentally fires at salon

[* As James Yeager would say, 'There's no such thing as an "Accidental Discharge." Only NEGLIGENT discharges!']

When an off-duty Chicago cop visited a South Shore salon Thursday night, it wasn’t her nails that got clipped.

She was shot in the right leg about 7:20 p.m. when her gun accidentally went off inside her purse.

Customers and employees panicked. Amelia Jackson said she and two friends who were getting their nails done dropped to the floor. They feared it was a robber or gang-banger doing the shooting.

That is a classic...

Even some of the children can tell he is an idiot before it even happens.

Some COPS in big cities have no clue how to handle a gun safely.

Nor have they read the constitution.

.

So someone shoves their gun inside a

cluttered purse and doesn't give a seconds thought to the possibility that the clutter might set the trigger off.

Not too bright lady. Luckily it shot her and not some innocent bystander.

can anyone say "Safety"?

can anyone say "Safety"?

The people in salon weren't too far off when they thought it was a robber or gang banger doing the shooting.

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

Many

police pistols do not have a safety. Mine has a decock, once activated the gun becomes double action. Additional pressure on the trigger is required to recock the hammer for the first round. If it is loaded and you pull the trigger, It goes bang.
If it is loaded and decocked, dropping it on the floor will not discharge the weapon.
I'm not police I just have a police style pistol.

let me guess,

a Sig, a Beretta M9/92FS/Taurus PT92, a CZ or its variant like IMI-Baby Eagle, or if polymer WITH decocker, a S&W M&P, a HK, or a FNH's FNP series?

LOL Yeah, granted that's not much of a 'specific' guess, when I cite practically every reputable gun mfr.

lol

So, if I had to really guess, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that yours is most likely a non-polymer Sig, Beretta/Taurus PT or CZ.

no cookie for you, lol

A Ruger-P345D and it fits my big hands nicely.

LOL

I've never been so wrong in my life!

No more gun-tarot card reading for me!

lol

I've shot Ruger's alloy framed P-series before, but not your polymer version. The alloy framed ones have always been relatively ruggedly reliable.

Good call. How's your polymer version treating ya?

Though, Ruger's flat base of the safety/decocking lever mitigates it somewhat, personally for me, because I rack the slide as default on reloads, I can't stand slide-mounted safety/decocker designs, even though I've gotten used to keeping the lever in check on designs like Beretta 92FS/M9 in racking cycles. It's still an unnecessary tactical hassle, for me anyways.

If Taurus actually built reliable weapons, if I had my druthers, wish Beretta would shift to putting Taurus PT's frame mounted safety/decocker design into their 92FS/M9 series. Of course, they'd probably see that as a 'downgrade' considering the fact that Taurus is the one who took over Beretta's plant in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and continued and copied Beretta's designs, not the other way around.

Similarly but in reverse, those smart Czechs designed it right and the Israelis had to go F' it up by mounting the tiny ass safety lever on the slide of their rather awesome looking Jericho941/Baby Eagle. Though it'd be nice if they simply made a Jericho upper without the slide-mounted decocker/safety for CZ75/85 series, I'd buy it in an instant.

While I used to abhor the plain and boring brick look of the Glocks, the utility of their design and their insane reliability for defensive purposes won me over. The Glock19 3rd Gen. is possibly the most perfect defensive handgun ever made!

Though, I'm still partial to 1911's; like a girl in a Jimmy Choo boutique, can't help but drool over 1911's whenever I see one: one can NEVER have too many 1911's.D

Yes

I was surprised to find that it misfires about one round per hundred. There is a recall on it but I decided to keep it original. I have practiced with it till I don't have to think about the operation, I just do it. Now it's like a familiar old friend.
Of course I agree on the 1911. I soooo want one of those Remington 1911's with the sweptwing grip. I'm not fond of the Glocks either. They are too big and clunky for me.

Probably wasn't holstered.

Probably wasn't holstered. Stupid cop! Chicago's finest?

that she didn't.

and like any false advertising based on 'she doth protests too much' the only reason why anyone would call something "Finest" is because they're not, and are simply trying to amplify what doesn't exist.

An ATF moron who can't tell apart a receiver for an AirSoft vs. a REAL AR15 forged or billet ordinance grade aluminum receiver: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2sWiZ8BizI

Simply govt commissars being what they are: a bunch of terrorists out to frighten the public to do their bidding and accept their tyranny as the "norm."

and this farce, even after all that shooting on a slow moving vehicle characterized as an attempt to "murderously" run down SWAT... even though the car wasn't speeding or rushing in front of ANYONE as all the cops were already on the side? And yet, STILL missed their "target?"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ummnOoSfd54

Not to mention the fact the idiot cop describing the event has no idea what he's talking about when he says that bullets don't usually go through cars easily?

As James Yeager would say, "you don't know WTF you're talking about!" LOL!

would you believe that

idiot, DEA terrorist Lee Paige, had the nerve to later sue his own terrorist organization DEA, for "emotional damages" (oh a trained killer had his feelings hurt, oh boo boo!) for having his own stupidity revealed on camera, for eternity?

http://www.deweycheatham-howe.com/2011/02/stupid-lawsuit-dea...
http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/bizarre/dea-agent-foo...

But thank God, at least the Judge in this case had the wherewithal to see a frivolous suit, when he saw one:
http://blogs.findlaw.com/decided/2011/01/judge-tosses-lawsui...

Though I suspect the fact that it got dismissed had more to do with the fact that Paige was suing a govt agency. Had Lee Paige been a private contractor suing another private firm, more than likely the lawsuit would've been allowed to go forth.

To NEVER be accountable for one's own actions even if it's caught on camera, is just a govt statist terrorist being what he is.

If anything those present at the "safety demonstration" should sue DEA for moronically NOT training the sub-10 IQ idiot murderers on proper muzzle discipline, chamber check, trigger control, and awareness of foreground/background target: ie. violating basically ALL FOUR of Col. Jeff Cooper's 4 Firearms Safety Rules. Along with suing the agent Lee Paige himself for reckless endangerment, and brandishing a loaded firearm at kids. Hey I thought schools/community centers were "Gun-Free Zones!"

But of course, the State/the Leviathan would never sue one of their own for creating a situation in which us lowly "peons" could've been murdered "accidentally" as "collateral damage," all for an "only I'm qualified to handle this powerful firearm"-ego show, a stupid deadly one at that.
