(Guns Save Life) – Mayor Bloomberg’s New York City Police, burdened with the so-called “New York Trigger”-equipped Glock pistols, fired up on a man acting berserk near Times Square in Manhattan on Saturday evening, September 14th.
Two officers from the city’s marksmanship team fired a total of three shots and scored two hits – vastly better than the average police shooting which says they make hits about 15% of the time.
The only problem is that it wasn’t the suspect that was hit, but instead a 54-year-old woman using a walker and a 35-year-old woman shot in the buttocks. Welcome to New York City, ladies. We hope you enjoy your visit!
Don’t blame the officers entirely. They are saddled with the almost impossibly difficult to pull New York Trigger – an 11-pound pull monstrosity that will degrade anyone’s accuracy under stress.
It however, makes the gun-hating big-city leftists “feel” safer knowing their police officers are less likely to unintentionally discharge their firearms thanks to that 11-pound trigger.
