Jason Williams Gun Demonstration

The Jason Williams case made the news last year when the former NBA player plea bargained to a lesser charge.

What do you think about the analysis of these "experts?" Please leave a comment.


  1. Hahahahaha.

    Once more, any gunloon can claim they are "gun experts."


  2. Once more, Jade comes with no information, just ad hom attacks.


  3. One: They didn't call themselves experts--the host did. (they didn't deny it, or correct him, either)

    Two: Based upon observation of their gun handling, I would say both men have some serious "trigger-time" meaning that they are familiar with firearms and firearms safety.

    Three: My only complaint about how they, as a group, handled the weapon was that they violated rule 2 several times (keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction). They were trying, but 'the camera man' isn't a safe direction, if you ask me. However, in the particular circumstance where they were demonstrating in a studio, with a gun that had been repeatedly shown to be empty, I can understand their complacency on following that rule in that situation. I don't agree with it, but I understand it.

    Four: As I see it, the original idiot that shot his friend violated at least three of the Four Rules, which caused his friend's death. Adding in the alcohol factor, he violated a fifth rule of gun safety that generally is unspoken but understood amongst responsible gun owners--drugs (alcohol) and guns don't mix.

    Five: It takes a violation of at least two rules to cause a gun to shoot and hurt someone. By itself, rule 3 can be broken and not end up with a trip to the ER. Add in a rule two violation, or a rule four violation, someone's likely going to get shot. Add in a rule one violation, it is practically guaranteed.

    Six: The idiot in question is guilty of manslaughter, at least.

  4. "Once more, any gunloon can claim they are "gun experts."

    Says the person who thinks you can convert a semi-auto gun to full auto by filing down the firing pin.
