The same leftist news media that was screaming for defunding the police is deleting my comments that police should receive firearms training. Here is the deleted comment:
The Deputy who fired this shot should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. There is no excuse for this sort of recklessly negligent horseplay. Since the sheriff seems to takeaway from this incident that the Deputy should have known the gun was loaded based upon how much it weighed, I would also suggest that the entire Sheriff’s department be forced to undergo a firearm safety refresher course. This incident is a sure sign that training is lacking and attention to firearm safety is not being taken seriously.
In this class, they can stress the four rules.
1 Treat all guns as if they are always loaded. (not just when they feel heavy enough to be loaded)
2 Don’t point a gun at anything you aren’t willing to destroy (including in jest)
3 Don’t put your finger on the trigger until ready to shoot.
4 Know what your target is, and what is behind it.
The life that is saved may be your own.
Why? Because leftists hate one thing more than cops- guns. They need to make this a gun death “If a well trained cop can make this mistake, an untrained civilian won’t do any better”
