VICE ‘Journalist’ Points Submachine Gun Toward His Cameraman and Pulls the Trigger

The fake news is heinously irresponsible.

A VICE journalist was caught pointing a so-called “Smart Gun” toward a journalist and pulling the trigger during a segment in a documentary urging gun safety.

Townhall senior writer Julio Rosas isolated the segment from a VICE Motherboard documentary in which the reporter pointed a Thompson submachine gun with a drum mag inserted into it at a cameraman and then pulled the trigger:

The clip is from a 2017 documentary featuring Motherboard Features Editor Brian Anderson arguing in favor of “Smart Gun” mandates to infringe upon the 2nd Amendment. The documentary is titled: “Who Killed the Smart Gun?”

A “smart gun” is designed to only fire in the hands of an authorized user, and make it easier for police to identify criminals following instances of gun-related violence. The sophisticated technology implanted in the weapons could make it easier for gun owners to be profiled or tracked, however, or the gun could be disabled remotely by usurping government agents.

“America is a gun culture. It always has been. With an estimated 260 to 300 million guns in the national gun stock today, firearms aren’t going anywhere. And it would appear the political will to craft robust nationwide gun control legislation remains dead in the water,” VICE Motherboard wrote to promote their documentary.

“But with an epidemic of mass shootings, and gun accidents devastating communities nationwide, a small movement seeks to change the very technology at the heart of firearms. Yet the players behind this movement to create user-authenticated firearms, or so-called smart guns that only fire in the hands of approved users, are blocked at every turn,” they added.

The NRA has issued a brief fact sheet on “smart guns” on their website:

Conceptually, a “smart” gun is one that incorporates technology that would prevent the gun from being used by an unauthorized person. Currently, no viable guns equipped with such technology exist.

Gun control supporters advocate laws to prohibit the sale of firearms that do not possess “smart” technology, as a way to prohibit the manufacture of traditional handguns, raise the price of handguns that would be allowed to be sold and, presumably, to imbed into handguns a device that would allow guns to be disabled remotely.

The NRA doesn’t oppose the development of “smart” guns, nor the ability of Americans to voluntarily acquire them. However, NRA opposes any law prohibiting Americans from acquiring or possessing firearms that don’t possess “smart” gun technology.

The full documentary can be seen here:

Twitter users hammered Anderson for his reckless behavior with a firearm, with some individuals making the point that liberals who report on guns typically understand very little about the topic in which they are covering.

The fake news media has inadvertently demonstrated exactly what not to do when handling firearms.

LA County Sheriff Wanted to Ban Gun Sales After He Released Criminals Early, But Got SHUT DOWN

The Sheriff’s gun store closure was shut down.

Published

on

The Sheriff of Los Angeles County is ordering all gun stores in his jurisdiction to close as part of the state’s crackdown on public activity in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic. He’s also releasing more than 1,000 non-violent offenders from the county’s jail system.

Villanueva doesn’t seem to have let up on anti-gun sentiment as the concerned public seeks to arm themselves in unprecedented numbers. He earlier called the notion of purchasing a gun in the midst of the epidemic a “bad idea,” stating that the general public couldn’t be trusted to posses guns safely while they’re restricted to their homes in quarantine.

It wasn’t enough for him to merely discourage the public from arming themselves. As of Tuesday, the sheriff has ordered all of the gun stores in his county to close as nonessential businesses. Villanueva has been designated as the Director of Emergency Operations by the county, leaving decisions such as gun store openings up to his discretion.

He’s combined his shutdown of gun sales with a release of 1,700 non-violent inmates from county jails.

Villanueva’s combination of a crackdown on legal gun acquisition and the release of real criminals from the justice system seems like a textbook method to inspire concern among the general public, especially considering his sheriff’s department has ceased to make arrests for many petty crimes during the epidemic.

But according to the sheriff, it’s new gun owners who can’t be trusted with responsibility. He slammed other state and county politicians for the handling of the state’s comprehensive shelter-in-place order. He claimed elected officials were undermining his deputies tasked with enforcing the order.

UPDATE:

Villaneuva’s effort to close the county’s gun stores has been shut down upon intervention of the county counsel.

Villaneuva was unapologetic about his move to shut down gun stores in the midst of the pandemic, claiming the surge of new gun owners represented a great danger that necessitated their closure.
