I’m reminded of a bit from Ron White, “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.”
We cannot play dumb when it comes to us violating the law but they get a free pass to arrest someone and violate their rights because they don’t know the law. If the people charged with enforcing the law don’t even know what’s legal or illegal anymore, maybe it’s time to reset the law because they’re obviously too much garbage on the books.

Because ignorance of the law can only be used against the otherwise law-abiding citizen, not the cop looking to abuse him.
[I love it. Let’s disguise total BS as “gun safety.” Lets look at his two examples shall we?
- Magazine Disconnect
Means you have to load a magazine into an empty firearm to show clear. Often if you go to a match of any kind and see someone with a gun with a disconnect, they have to carry an extra magazine to show clear after a stage. Tell me, how does it make things safer to drop the mag, rack out the round and then have to reinsert a mag. Guess that’s why it’s the one safety USPSA allows you to disable or remove.
Otherwise known as the excuse people use not to observe proper gun handling. Instead of using your own damn two eyes, you rely on a mechanical device that can, and will eventually fail. It will either result in your gun failing, or start giving false positives, or indicate empty when hot.
Even worse though is the idea, and there will be people who do this, that some people will use the chamber indicator to assume the weapon is unloaded. Then they’re finger !%^* the damn trigger and act all surprised that they just ventilated someone because they violated god knows how many of the 4 rules because “the chamber indicator said it’s unloaded”.
Safeties are all well and good folks but lets be realistic here. What do any of those two safeties actually provide?
Not a damn thing that simple education or proper storage couldn’t take care of. Instead of education he wants to modify firearms, in such a manner as to aid in careless gun handling mind you.
This folks is why you don’t take advice from people who don’t know what the hell they’re talking about. –B]
He was wearing his badge and driving an unmarked car. If a person had defended themselves you can bet they’d be charged with assaulting a police officer and could very well be dead from the overwhelming response from his friends after keying the radio.
The officer hasn’t been fired though the police Chief claims not to tolerate that kind of behavior… I guess seeing video of it happen wasn’t enough to seal the deal.

Because when you’re a cop and you get a craving for a Big Mac, assault anyone who stalls you.
Matter-of-fact, this whole sorry episode is going to be another footnote in the annals of history that future scholars will point to and say, "This was the period of time in which the Government of the United States consisted solely of people who didn’t have any business running anything more complicated than a lemonade stand without adult supervision."
