Lawyer, huh?

She is brandishing while he is holding.

I wonder if she bothered to read the law about brandishing for her location. Bad lawyer. If anyone pressed charges against her, she would risk being disbarred, even if she got out of the charges.

They're violating a majority of basic gun safety rules.

Quote:
The 12 Golden rules for Safe Gun Handling

Always treat the gun as loaded.
Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
Always keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
Always keep the gun unloaded until you are ready to use it.
Never point the gun at anything you don't intend to destroy.
Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
Learn the mechanical and handling characteristics of the gun you are using.
Always use proper Ammunition.
Be sure the barrel is clear of obstructions before loading and shooting.
If your gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, hold your shooting position for several seconds; then with the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, carefully unload the gun.
Don't rely on the gun's safety to keep it from firing.
Be aware of your surroundings when handling guns so you don't trip or lose your balance and accidentally point and/or fire the gun at anyone or anything.

Shooting barefoot must be some kind of fad there.

They could've been charged with manslaughter if any of the protesters had died laughing.

Yes, born at the same time to an Irish decent father and half Jamaican mother.
I think most people would see one white girl and one light skinned black girl.
Good thing they were in England, in Alabama they couldn't drink from the same water fountain.

Woman in a van with four girls ages 6 to 17 looking for a nail salon on Sunday morning gets pulled over by the cops in a Denver, CO suburb. The girls were ordered out of the van and facedown on the pavement at gunpoint. The 12 and 17 year olds were handcuffed. Take that dangerous criminals.

Why were they pulled over? Because the COLORADO automobile license plate has the same numbers as a reported stolen motorcycle with a MONTANA motorcycle license plate.

This is absolute bullshit, the cops are out of control.

What pisses me off is that people always use that phrase (the ones who employ it seriously) but miss off the rest of the saying:

A few bad apples spoil the bunch.

If you don't have your AR-15, you won't be able to do like lawyers do. And just as certainly, you won't improve on it either. And your situation will be dreadful if the rioters mostly peacefully kick your door in.

Which didn't happen at the lawyers' house. That's stupid? Or nearer to smart?
