        •  It's not the questions (6+ / 0-)

          he is suggesting gross (probably criminal depending on the state) negligence on his own part, and trying to blame a baby for it. If she was actually wounded and shot - then it's definitely criminal.  But then again, he could also be joking. She might have simply DROPPED the gun and it landed on her foot or something.

          ha ha. still funny not.

          •  There is no indication the kid/s (0+ / 0-)

            ever touched a gun or were hurt in any way by a bullet .
            I think you are reading into it much more than what is really there .
            He is asking them silly questions , they are answering them the best they can while not knowing what it is they are talking about .
            I like that the first girl says clearly "dangerous" .
            That shows , imho , that she has been taught that guns are dangerous . She seems very young to know this on her own .
            I like that she says she doesn't have glock leg but that her little sister does . This shows that she doesn't know what glock leg is .
            The little sister doesn't have glock leg .
            The little sister didn't put a glock in her pocket and have a finger on the trigger and blast a round into her leg .

            •  Well, like I said... (7+ / 0-)

              he could be joking with them.  Or not.  It's in his description of the video that I suspect not.

              I asked my daughters about the glock. little Addie didn't have much to say but I think the limp in her walk and the stumbling say enough.
              He specifically says "She accidentally had her finger on the trigger when she put it in her pocket" - so maybe I'm jumping to a conclusion. Maybe not.

              It's his video, if he doesn't want it seen - he can take it down.

                  but he's using that as proof that she has "Glock Leg" - whatever that is.  So again, either she's just a normal kid who currently walks that way and he's a really not funny guy - or he's serious.  Hopefully he's not serious, but he could be.

                    The glock has an easy to pull trigger , to easy some say , the glock leg comes from shooting ones self in the leg .
                    Another gun that takes more effort to fire will not go off as easy ...
                    The easy pull of the glock trigger is one of the complaints about the glock .

                    http://www.npr.org/...

                    "Police departments were amazed when they took their officers out to the range and found out not only could they learn to use the Glock pretty quickly, but the Glock also made them more accurate as marksmen," he says. "And that's in part because it has a very light, very steady trigger pull. ... Critics of the guns say the trigger pull is so light that it makes accidental discharges so likely. But the Glock always has had that dual nature to it — the advantages can be reframed as disadvantages."

                    If you own any other type of handgun (besides a Glock), you probably get real tired of hearing the fanboys defending how “safe” a Glock is, despite the number of accidental discharges that have been documented while reholstering. This is so common as to have spawned it’s own slang term: “Glock Leg“.

                    A condition where a person shoots himself (or herself) in the leg while holstering their Glock pistol.

                    This can happen with any weapon yielded by a careless user, but it is common among Glock pistols due to the lack of a manual safety, relatively light trigger pull, and lack of a proper hammer to push on while holstering.

                    Turns out Plaxico Buress, the NY Giants bad-boy wide receiver, fell victim to a pretty common malady among those who arm themselves with Glock automatics — the dreaded "Glock leg." Glocks are unusual guns because they don't really have safeties.

                    The problem with Glocks is that they have a tendency to go off even when the holder does not intend for that to happen. That's what happened to Plaxico. His gun, which had been in the waistband of his pants, began to slip and he reached for it. His finger no doubt pulled the trigger and he shot himself in the leg.

                    How is Jim doing? I heard that he came down with a case of Glock leg at the range yesterday.

                      safety.

                      The Glock was designed as a military sidearm, not as a civilian weapon.  There's a trade-off between being able to fire as soon as you draw, and having to operate a safety first.

                      Most militaries have decided that they'd rather soldiers be able to fire instantly, partly because some testing indicated that under severe combat stress (remember, the average GI pulls his side arm generally only when he's lost his primary weapon or run out of ammo) soldiers sometimes forgot to operate the safety.

                      Obviously, the risk-reward picture is substantially different for civilians.  It's flatly fucking stupid to market pistols, particularly pistols often carried concealed, to civilians with no external safety.

                      If firearms weren't explicitly excluded from any oversight by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, a true safety separate from the trigger would be a mandated feature on all firearms.

                      "Paid Activist" is an oxymoron.

                        I used "average GI" instead of "average infantry soldier" when I really shouldn't have.

                        While many of our NATO allies issue Glocks, our armed forces use Berettas.

                        Chosen, in part, because they do have a side mounted safety operated separately from the trigger.

                        "Paid Activist" is an oxymoron.
