No Minister

Perhaps it will frighten the jury?

The man holding that AR-15 rifle is the lead prosecution lawyer in the Kyle Rittenhouse case in the USA, and he is aiming it at the jury to demonstrate… something.

Un.

Fucking.

Believable.

Just look at the lack of trigger discipline in the photo. That alone made me cringe.

Here are just four basic rules of using a rifle (or any gun) that I learned from my Dad when I was twelve years old:

  1. Always check that a gun is not loaded when you get it (and by loaded I mean one up the spout).
  2. Never point it at anyone even when you know it is unloaded.
  3. Always assume it’s loaded and treat it like that.
  4. Never put your finger like that near the trigger unless you intend to shoot.

No wonder the judge lost his temper a few days ago with this idiot. He didn’t seem to be any better at handling law than he is at handling a rifle.

Seeing this and thinking of things like Alec Baldwin killing the poor woman a few weeks ago because the gun had been passed to him by three assistants who were sure it was safe – meaning that he didn’t have to check it – I can’t help thinking that people like Bingham are terrified of gun owners because they’re so fucking clueless and careless around firearms themselves and assume everybody else is as well, aside from soldiers, police and other “trained” people (little do they know on that score also).

  1. I’m speechless… It shouldn’t have even been in the courthouse without being safety tagged. Even then, you do not point it at a person unless you are intending to shoot them.

  2. This sublime idiocy, more than anything else, may bring about the correct verdict.

  3. I knew that when I shot my first deer at 9. 71 now and never had a firearm accident.
    1. Treat firearms as loaded.
    2. Treat props as live.
    3. Treat horses as kickers.
    Can’t go wrong.

  4. Lol – that prosecutor is an idiot and the whole trial has been a farce with his witnesses blowing up in his face

    The judge is a crusty old bugger who actually believes in the law and applying it fairly

    Which has lead to the jury being sent out on multiple occasions as that DA has tried to slip excluded evidence into the testimony

    The video of the trial will be a rich source of memes for years to come

    Watch for the facepalm of the assistant DA at the very end of this clip
