Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Regarding TV LE “Dramas” These comments from a friend and LEO in PA:
“Like you, I don't I don't watch a lot of TV, because it is typically so glib and intelligence-insulting, I can't abide it! But, lately I've been watching several of the ‘new' LEO dramas.
It is almost universal, no matter the network, that all ‘cops‘ portrayed in these dramas, take their pistols out of their holsters, and then cycle the action, just prior to entering a building in order to apprehend bad guys. People who write this sewage, who have never touched a gun in their entire sheltered lives, are apparently in love with the “clacking” sound made by autoloading pistols, always at dramatic interludes! I'm sure they have not the slightest idea of what cycling the slide on an autoloading pistol actually accomplishes, and couldn't care less!
These so-called “cops” are carrying serious pistols without a round in the chamber? How far does this go to convey the false impression to non-gun people that this is how it should be done, that even trained police officers run around with empty guns!
In another example, two stone-faced “cops” retrieve ARs from their vehicles, and then proceed forward to confront a gaggle of bad guys. But, just before contact, they sling their ARs, and draw their pistols!
I wonder what those ARs are for. I'm sure they do too! I'm sure the bad guys were amazed!
Then, if course, they proceed, using only their pistols, to effortlessly out-shoot the bad guys, all of whom are armed with ARs and AKs (that are not slung!).
If ARs and AKs are that impotent, I guess I don't need one!
Finally, all actors portraying cops have fingers constantly wrapped around triggers and guns continuously pointed at themselves, each other, and every other unsafe direction imaginable!”
Comment: In an even marginally good civilization, television would be a powerful instrument of education! As it is, people who control the media obviously care not a whit about their role in education, nor in societal advancement, but do care, to the exclusion of everything else, about promoting their personal, leftist agendas, even when what ends up on the screen is blatantly false, unsafe, inaccurate, and wrong.
We can only wonder how many gun accidents have occurred as a direct result of legions of the naive watching this trash!
“Liberal ‘theology,' into which no inquiry is ever permitted, insists upon unquestioning obedience from its dupes. The ‘party-line' is pious imbecility, against which waves of logic beat in-vain” ~ Anonymous
