Gun Safety (or Not)

We don't know how many of our readers have seen the video of the DEA guy shooting himself in the foot after telling a class of children that HE was the ONLY ONE in that room qualified to actually touch a firearm. We admit we laughed at his misfortune in public and then made DOUBLY sure our firearm was safe in private. His biggest mistake was (say it with us now) being videotaped.

Well, now he's suing the DEA for permitting the video to go public and making him "the joke of the Internet." WGN ran the clip on the news last night and there may have been more broadcasts of it after the suit became public. We probably would have let it die out - now everyone has an excuse to run the tape again and start to recycle all of the old punchlines. On the other hand, we're always thankful for an excuse to review gun safety tips.

Rule #1 - treat all guns as if they were loaded.
Rule #1A - especially if there is a camera running.

We seen the video and it is just an accident. Just a good example of more THOUGHT IN NOT TAKING THINGS FOR GRANTED.

What moron brings a loaded gun into a classroom full of kids to do a safety course. Forgot who we are talking about, DEA. My bad, we know what moron it was now. I saw the video, you can tell something happen for that guy to be doing that job.

All guns are loaded. All guns! Thinking in any other fashion is how you get shot accidently.

All weapons should be carried in condition 3 for ultimate safety.

This Bozo made a fool of himself for sure. He will be remembered for a very long time for that video clip.

As we all laugh at him, I hope we're vigilant enough about gun safety. If for for other reason none of us want to join this DEA dope in history. This accident made me rethink gun safety. I teach students firearms for CCW permit qualification.

I can't imagine how that story would have played out if a school child were killed, I don't think anybody would be laughing.

Let's be safe!

I was recently in a class with a couple of DEA agents. The class was about gun safety and what to do and not to do. They know that guy and did say he is a box of rocks. If you watch the video you see the clown I mean the DEA guy walk off screen holding the pistol in slide-lock. What he does is go over to the guy against the wall and asks him if the gun is safe, a double check method the most of the "G" uses, you check it then have someone else check it. The guy on the wall said it was safe and clear. You should never rely on someone else, always double check the breach and barrel. What they both did not see was the round stuck in the barrel because the gun was not clean. A mistake that could of been very tragic. Remember clean your gun often and oil it up more often.

1st and foremost
Once again the media goes and exploits someone else's misfortune on the job, that clip of the DEA agent is old old internet news.
Yes, he broke the number one rule of gun safety. The gun is always loaded. Only for the grace of God, no children were hurt.
I agree w/ 0134 he messed up before.
But like any of us, we all make mistakes, was it really that "newsworthy" to replay the clip, to embarrass this individual further, did the media mention if his foot is fully functionable or
whether or not he will be able to walk normally?
Maybe next week we could show the internet clip of the guy losing his arms in front of his children in a chopper blade, or the kid who's body is in 30 pieces from a bike wreck, for entertainment. The media doesn't even have to use cameras anymore. Just surf the web
and steal other peoples film footage.

Hilarious!!! Is anyone at the DEA this stupid? I mean this guy can hardly put to syllables together!

I remember how my father used to love watching Sanford and Son and the Flip Wilson show! These sh%theads are the best for comedy! Look at the reaction of the ‘peoples’ in the audience when he then says; lets me shows you my assaults rifle! All of ‘em are ready to hit the floor! .. “What you talkin’ about Willis?!”

Obviously, the DEA agent will be O.K. but...

The 11:46 AM link to the accidental discharge is ABSOLUTELY HYSTERICAL.

I saw the first part including the A/D before. However, I never saw him going for the assault rifle afterwards and the reaction of the kids in the classroom. Funny stuff!

(Scroll six back to the blue link, CLICK and laugh your ass off.)

i feel bad for the guy....he probably put a lot of shit heads away.
BUT....i was taught there are 3 cardinal rules of gun safety and if you only violate 1 at a time you will be no more than embarrased.




he assumed the weapon was unloaded, pointed it at his leg and then pulled the trigger.

he fucked up big time !

Plain and simple, the Glock he was using , like all Glocks, are crap.
Especially the Model22 (40cal.)
The same model CPD was testing and had failures with.

Thats right ....crap.

They're unsafe, grip is too thick, barrel chambers explode (and the plastic frame does nothing to contain it), they're finicky with JHP ammo, slide won't cycle with a light attached to the rail, can't double strike a dud primer, garbage sights, poor accuracy, yada yada yada

Look here...

Its bleeding hearts like you that hire and promote these morons.. Fuck yourself you LIBERAL asshole.. This motherfucker is in front of highly educated people and is representing OUR government.. HE WALKS, HE TALKS, HE ACTS LIKE A FUCKING MORON. He is a disgrace to all police officers and to our nation.

DID YOU SEE THE WHOLE VIDEO? Did you see him pull out the assault rifle? Acting like a Westside gang banger piece of shit?!?!

Just remember the next time one of those teachers or the principle that was in that room sees a police officer, MAYBE YOU.. he’ll think of that piece of shit excuse for a human!

Hey asswipe.. Of course there are “moronic” white cops.. What is the percentage compared to Mr. DEA?

Many of us were FUCKED over in the 1980s on promotions because our Supreme Court (Thurgood Marshall.- may he rot in hell) I was passed over as the city went back over 1800 on the list behind me to find a piece of garbage like this to get MY PROMOTION ! ! !.

You don’t even know it but you have been brainwashed by all the shit you see on television/movies and probably the Catholic school .. hell you probably even believe in CAPS!

You just keep thinking its all legit you punk-police know it all.. Perhaps your time will come when you get fucked over because SOMEONE LIKE YOU {in the Supreme Court etc.} believes that someone less competent deserves your promotion; your job; your kids chance to get into the Univesity of Chicago.. whatever.

Now go watch the Cosby Show my brainwashed child … Sickening

Oh, I see. So you think that because there are black idiots, all blacks are idiots. Yes, brilliant. I'm sorry you were overlooked for promotion, but most likely if you were a little smarter, things would have worked out better. I'm white, I went to public school (which is probably why I know that there are brilliant people of all races-I wasn't sheltered like yourself), and I know that people who want to associate this video with race have no business being on this job. You are not "sickening," only sad. Your life could be better without all the ignorant misplaced anger-you should try it. Bitch.
