Liberator Reissued

You may recall the Special Edition Liberator that went on sale last year. It's being reissued now to the New York City Police Department's patrolmen.

"...drafted in the wake of Sean Bell's controversial police shooting death -- would force officers to use their weapons "with the intent to stop, rather than kill" a suspect. They would be mandated to "shoot a suspect in the arm or the leg..." Read more: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/cops_furious_at_don_kill_bill_SkSRn51FKIeHqY85ZHJSYI#ixzz0pGdhm2zG
There's "idiocy" and there's "Idiocy". This is pure Idiocy.
People: we're screwed, blued and tattooed when we allow idiots like these people to be involved with government.
God help us for allowing such people to live outside loony bins.
Bless God, God bless.

  2. The NYPD "Only Ones" don't like being lumped in with the Lesser Ones? Isn't there a gun law in NYC? Sorry bastards.

  3. YeOldFurt kind of stole my thunder. The police in NYC have stood by while the common people have had their gun rights stripped.

    Well, "Tag! You're it!"

    It will be interesting to see how many quit in protest.

  5. The police, and everyone else, should shoot to stop. The targets most likely to stop an attacker are the upper chest, brain, and central nervous system. Shooting for the pelvis is ok to reduce the attackers mobility if other targets haven't stopped him, especially if he is armed with a contact weapon instead of a firearm. Shooting for arms and legs should be reserved for when that is the only target available i.e. if the attacker is behind cover and the only thing visible is an arm or leg.

    Shooting an attacker in the arm or leg when better targets are available is not "shooting to stop". It is wasting ammunition and endangering others.

  6. If I were a police officer, I would shot to stop in certain situations. For example, if I were a good and practiced shot, and I knew the suspect cannot kill somebody or myself, but needs to be stopped. (E.g., he is walking toward a group of children 100 feet away with a machete, and the police officer is between the children and the machete wielding criminal ignoring commands to drop the weapon). I also saw a video once of a man sitting on a chair in the middle of the street threatening to kill himself with a pistol. A sharp shooter shot the gun out of the suicidal man's hand. That was the right call, in my opinion.
    But in most situations, I imagine police officers aren't blessed with such contrived situations. They have to make life and death decisions in an instant. In those cases, it is best to shot to hit the first time. I assume the center torso is the best place, so that if you're off a bit, you have the best chance of still doing damage.
