If The Taser Doesn’t Work, Shoot Him in the Leg!

Found this video that shows another trope:

Taser shot and doesn’t work, the guy gets pelted with 12 gauge beanbags, and 40mm Less-Than-Lethal, and eventually one officer shoots him twice, once in the arm, once in the leg.

Have a look at the video, dude barely notices, and the police even cut the video because it takes him so long to realize he’s in mortal danger from that leg bleed.

Also note that if he continued to be violently crazy he potentially could have died from that wound. Hell if you remember this story, this poor guy was taking out his trash when a broken wine glass poked through the bag and slashed his femoral artery. He bled to death before he could get help, a bullet can do a LOT more damage than a wine glass.

So yeah, this is why we always talk about center of mass shots, extremity shots MIGHT work and MIGHT be non-lethal, or the might NOT work, and/or they might be lethal.

And of course the only reason why this arrest went as well as it did was because the cops vastly out-numbered the crazy. Had this been just a private citizen on a walking trail or taking out their trash, it might not have ended so well.

A Tinfoil Hat Made Out of Copper

So on the Facebook I was targeted for an ad from this company

So for those that don’t know, since the Volstead Act Distilling spirits has been illegal. When the 21st Amendment was added to the Constitution the ATF (Which was created to catch bootleggers illegally selling alcohol) started taxing producers by requiring licenses.

Now I have a C&R FFL, which allows me as a collector to have some of the powers of a commercial FFL, and of course lots of limitations so that I’m not acting like a gun shop without having the proper license. It’s also totally ok for you to ferment your own beer, wine, mead, ect at home so long as its for your own personal use and never for sale.

But I really don’t drink much beer or wine, I like spirits, is there a license where I could buy a modest copper pot still like that one and turn home made beer into whiskey, or wine into brandy?

No, no there isn’t.

As a matter of fact it is ILLEGAL to have a still in a residential area (I’m not sure if it’s mere possession of the still, or is it operation….knowing the ATF I suspect it’s possession) so if you want to pay for a commercial license you need to establish that distillery in a commercially zoned area. So even if I wanted to dump the cash for a full license…..either FFL or for distilling, I can’t unless I open a commercial property.

Furthermore their FAQ has NO information about this!

I think what puts a bow on it is this line:

Absolutely FREE shipping and FREE returns, if needed. Street address required. Still cannot be shipped to P.O. Boxes – they don’t fit!

Maybe I’m paranoid now. Yeah, even a small pot still won’t fit in a PO Box…..but it’s also not the place to send the ATF SWAT team to arrest you. Is this just an elaborate Sting?

I’m not taking the bait.

**UPDATE**

Found this on their Youtube Chanel:

Either this is a MUCH more targeted STING than a simple Phishing Trap, or the guy in the video is documenting his felonies and ignorance of the law for all to see.

You Don’t Need a Firearm, Just use a Taser

This is one of those debate points I have with people who aren’t really anti-gun, but just REALLY Don’t like guns and would rather there be less of them out there. They see the videos where tasers are deployed and they work like a charm, and say “Why do you need a gun when you could get one of those?”

It’s a valid argument. Of course when we see Tasers WORK it’s generally in a law enforcement environment, so when the person is on the ground, officers jump in and handcuff the suspect. They do this because it isn’t long before the effects wear off and the lethal threat you just took down is now a lethal threat again.

But that’s if everything goes perfectly. Here’s an example where it REALLY Doesn’t.

I lost count of how many tasers were deployed, some missed, but SEVERAL hit. Generally the word is if one barb misses nothing works, and if one barb hits but fails to penetrate the skin if also fails, so you often see people wearing heavy coats shrug off a taser, but this jerk was wearing just jeans and a t-Shirt. Plus given how many bean bag rounds from the shotgun he soaked up, this was a battle to the death, and frankly I’m not displeased he was the one who died.
