Exactly, and that's likely why you haven't seen the media crowing about it. The sensationalism alone would be enough to rise this above agendas and it would get air time. Or something.
I've seen some small discussions about this on other forums and the conventional wisdom is that this is like moot court. All the parts are being played and all the elements are in place, but there is no authority. I have also read that a "citizens grand jury" handed down an indictment on Eric Holder and you can see how that has gone unnoticed.
Shame, because there ought to be a real investigation with real indictments where appropriate. I'll hold my breath.
"OCALA, Fla., July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Florida State's Attorney Angela Corey has been indicted by a citizens' grand jury, convening in Ocala, Florida, over the alleged falsification of the arrest warrant and complaint that lead to George Zimmerman being charged with the second degree murder of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida."
This would mean that even if GZ gets a conviction, it could all be nullified by the fact that the whole thing was a illegal from the start...
That guy's a total quack and has already "indicted" almost everyone under the sun in his imaginary grand juries.
While I recognize that a citizens grand jury lacks any real , actionable authority, it is interesting that the claims made via the indictment are reasonably provable. I'll admit, most citizens grand jury's infer and chase unsubstantiated facts as truth, but I think this one hits the bullseye. The conclusions drawn by this "indictment" are both believable and rooted in logic. What they lack in authority seems to be offset by reason, this time anyway.
This judge appears to be in the pocket of the state. Is she "above the law" in that she can continue her extremely biased approach with no potential consequences?
Many classes will touch base on racking the slide or clearing a malfunction with one hand. I practice racking the slide using the edge of my pants pocket on the rear sight.
I still think carrying -1 is a bad idea however.
I watched a bit of Fox last night and they were talking about the +1. It was full of fail.
Agree on carrying +1 as felt appropriate, comfortable and as long as deemed safe by the user. I typically carry -1 these days only from the standpoint there are children around me. To me, at this point, it's a safety issue not from anything I feel comfortable with or feel safe by myself with, but thinking of those around me first.
Before worrying about children being around, I carried +1 as I wanted to be fully prepared for any encounter. In my opinion, carrying safely in a state where you're ready to go for any eventuality is optimal.
But again, this should be considered given your surroundings, training, experience, comfort level and if it can be done safely. Truly a personal preference and it will be different from person to person.
Just as there is no perfect gun, there is no perfect way to carry either as it's all about what works for you, your situation and what can be done with safety first.
