The Only Ones
Back in August, when two teenage boys exchanged gunfire in a grudge match outside a high school football stadium just as a game was winding down in the suburbs of Philadelphia [PA], three unidentified police officers responded with 25 shots of their own into a car they mistakenly believed was the source of the gunshots, killing an 8-year-old girl from 140 feet away. The two teenage boys have been charged with first-degree murder in the death of that girl. The three cops have been charged with…. nothing.
An unidentified 52-year-old “special officer” of the Carver [MA] Police Department shot himself in the leg during training on a gun range in Harwich this week.
San Francisco police Sgt. Davin Cole was charged last week with second-degree robbery after being arrested earlier this month for alleged off-duty armed robbery at a Rite Aid in San Mateo. Cole is also accused of resisting arrest.
The bad guys
Seven men were sentenced to prison this week in Madison County, MS, for trafficking in stolen guns. Their first names are Trevon, Genoris, Latavious, Kendravious, Lakeith, Laregious, and Quintavious. I am not making this up. Does anyone else sense a pattern?

It is optics ready, 15+1 capacity, ships with two magazines, offers a choice of ambidextrous manual thumb safety or no manual safety, and a 4″ or 4.6″ barrel configuration. About $660. Is anyone keeping a count of how many 10mm pistol models are currently being made?
