We are accustomed to gun bloopers in Hollywood movies, 6 shot revolvers that blast 27 rounds without reloading and Glocks that “cock” as if a single action.  Backwards optics are also an occasional sighting, but when a major taboo ends up being one of a supposed “trained professional” serving an anti-gun state, it’s somewhat amusing.

Here is an image captured from a SWAT stand off in New York this past week:
