or liberals facts are never really important. Truth to liberals like Democrat New York City Congressman Jerrold Nadler is what he feels it is. Nadler has said: Hunters dont use large ammunition clips, and as far as self- defense, I mean who are you defending yourself against? If youre defending yourself against a robber two or three or four shots should be enoughperiod.
Its a safe bet Nadler has never faced an assailant fueled by adrenalin drugs and alcohol. That doesnt matter, of course, since no one will ever challenge Nadler on his supposed knowledge of the danger presented by people who are psychotic and drunk period.
The period at the end of Nadlers pronouncement is the classic liberal dismissal of anyone daring to disagree with their use of feelings as facts.
Nadlers fantasy about real shooting combat brings up the death of New York City Police Sergeant Edward J. Johnson.
On January 8, 1960 Sergeant Johnson and his driver were on patrol in the Bowery district of lower Manhattan. The area was dotted with dozens of soup kitchens that catered to the skid row drunks and mental patients that freely walked New Yorks streets.
Johnson responded to a call of a man with a knife who was menacing the staff and clients one of those soup kitchens. When Johnson arrived another team of cops was already on the scene and attempting to subdue the man in a narrow hallway. He was clearly a drunken paranoid schizophrenic. He had a 16 inch bread knife and was not giving it up.
At some point the man lunged at Johnson and all four cops started shooting from less than seven feet away. They fired 24 shots hitting him 16 times. Four of the shots should have killed the drunken psychotic instantly. One cleanly severed his spinal cord; another went through his heart. None of those shots killed him fast enough to stop him from plunging his knife into Sergeant Edward Johnsons heart. Johnson died at the scene. The drunken psychotic died seconds later; but way too late.
Jerrold Nadler is a jackass; but he feels the right way about guns so thats good enough period.
Noodler probably never fired a gun.
I don’t know—it may take a bazooka to make more than a flesh wound in this guy..........
Great! Let’s start out by limiting police officers to guns with 3 rounds only. Right in the middle of his allowable range. More than that shouldn’t be ever be necessary. After all, the criminals the police have to confront are the very same ones victimizing the rest of us.
He’s obviously never seen me shoot.
What a retarded statist puke!
Fat and stupid is no way to go through life.
For Nadler, I’d say a couple 30-round mags would be needed just to get through the blubber.
That, or a good elephant gun.
Maybe someone should stage a shootout in from of him with him being the target. All blanks of course but I bet he would reconsider his position...lol
Surely, he is talking about AFTER the perp is downed.
Put one of these creeps in the middle of a desert and he will immediately begin telling the lizards how to catch bugs.
NYPD are trained like crap. Spray and pray seems to be SOP for these guys. (Dad was NYPD. He was also a marine so he knew how to shoot)
How many rounds in the magazine does no nads Nadler’s
Body guards carry?
May this jackass never have to implement his theories.
That, or a good elephant gun.
A harpoon gun for Moby
The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time hes staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver, [Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman] told Channel 2s Kerry Kavanaugh.
The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.
Shes standing over him, and she realizes shes fired all six rounds. And the guys telling her to quit shooting, Chapman said.
2 - 4 Shots from most semi-automatic handguns probably wouldn’t bring his fat ass down, especially if he’s moving toward you!
Well placed per perp, maybe.
Jerrhole should concentrate on passing a law that only one person may commit a crime at a time. Then, a defensive posture would not require more rounds.
There are over 8,000 home invasions each year with an average of 2-3 criminals taking part. 2-4 bullets would only work for a trained SEAL and he would probably still prefer more. Reducing the number of bullets could be called the Rapist Protection Act as it does nothing to protect the victim.
