Wow, that guy was a serious idiot! Forensics expert? Im guessing his field of expertise is not firearms, or even math for that reason.

"Trigger pull is between 3 and 7 psi so lets just average that out and say 3 1/2psi"

CNN is nototrious for talking out their ass about firearms though. I remember all the scare tactics they were pulling out when the assault rifle ban under clinton came about. The president of the NRA called them out on it though thankfully.

That was ridiculous to listen to.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

No shit!
I seriously doubt they have an inertial firing pin safety. And he calls himself a firearms expert.

Man, if this guy is an "expert", then I should be travelling the country making 7-figures testifying in trials.

To say that anyone in the general public "should not" have this gun is just bullshit.

If it's legal and I want it, then I'm sure as hell gonna have it.

You know, if you put a 30-30 shell next to a 223 Rem, you'll go .. HOLY SHIT, what is the 30-30 used for? Killing tanks?

He's an NYPD crime scene detective, not a forensic pathologist, not to mention a ballistics expert would be the one to talk to. Idiots.

Give me a dollar.

A .22 can take down a elephant, IF you shot it in the eye.... If I were going to Africa, I'd take a .375 H&H Magnum.

Thumbs up

I think he summed up his bias and ignorance pretty well when he said "I don't care what anybody tells me."

Sad part is that this expert had testified over 300 times as an expert witness before he retired. And as a side note anyone using a .223 in Africa on large game would be charged as a criminal. What a tool and how pitiful that NYC had this person as an employ of their police force. Scary......

The one thing that does get me is every damned time there is some report about a firearm going off in a household the excuse always has something to do with the weapon being cleaned. Why in the fuck is there live ammunition anywhere near a firearm when it is being cleaned? If you want to run rounds through the action go buy some dummy rounds, dummy!
