    for the next gun nut dummy in line – use a laser sight. That way, the shooter will know where the bullet will hit.

      …or just shoot the vest laying on the ground and see if it gets penetrated. My guess is that they mistook a vest designed against knife attack as a bulletproof one.

        Once a vest is hit then it is weakened and must be thrown away.maybe this vest was previously shot at and that is why it penetrated.

    So sick of ignorant pseudo journalists and their agendas. There once was a time when the news was reported and people were left to have their own thoughts and opinions.

    To start, the term ‘gun’ is not interchangeable with ‘firearm’ or ‘pistol’ or ‘rifle’, a common mistake but anyone with 5 min of firearms education knows to not call them “guns”.

    Next, and more to the point, does a firearm point it self at a person and pull the trigger? Does it magically fly from the factory and into the hands of children? Does it have thoughts and feelings? Does it do ANYTHING on its own but sit there and take up space? Lemme help you so you don’t have to think for yourself, no it does not, that is the very definition of “inanimate object”. So please take a gun and shoot yourself, Alan Colmes, you wanna-be pundit, you are the true inanimate object, wasting space.

      I am sick of ignorant pseudo experts coming to this forum, and having no clue what they are talking about.

      Unless of course, it is your contention that the leadership of the NRA lacks 5 minutes of firearms education


      A rifle, shotgun or handgun using gunpowder as a propellant. By federal definition, under the 1968 Gun Control Act, antiques are excepted. Under the National Firearms Act, the word designates machine guns, etc. Airguns are not firearms.


      The British restrict the term in portable arms to shotguns. Here it is properly used for rifles, shotguns, handguns and airguns, as well as cannon.

    “The coroner’s office has ruled the shooting a homicide.”

    What the bloody f**k else would they rule it, since a human died?
