Why Is A Glock The Weapon Of Choice Amongst Law Enforcement?

The Glock, named after the engineer Gaston Glock, has proven to be the choice of backup weapon for both police officers and security guards for decades.  But, why is the Glock their preferred weapon of choice?  Law enforcement chooses this handgun style for the same reason that many gun owners do: safety, reliability, and just general affordability.  Many features of the Glock makes it a desirable weapon. 

Accuracy

The Glock is known for its ability to handle situations at a long distance.  Many officers, when trained with the Glock, are happy with the accuracy this weapon provides them.  It is also a favorite amongst those individuals with little shooting experience.  With fifteen rounds in its magazine, the Glock offers more firepower than the usual six rounds of most handguns.  The trigger is also easier to pull, which goes a long way toward improving accuracy amongst its users.

Affordable Modification

Law enforcement officers require a weapon that not only protects them but modifiable to their specifications.  The Glock is extremely affordable by comparison.  Modifications may include sites for additional accuracy, grips for added stability, and the addition of magazines for more rounds.

Durability

To stay within their budget, the US legal system wants its officers to carry a weapon that will not take them a lot of costs to maintain.  The Glock is the perfect weapon for this, as it is highly durable, and made of a polymer that will not dent or crack.

Ease Of Cleaning

When the time comes to clean this gun, it is simple to take apart.  The disassembling of the weapon takes about a minute, and the cleaning takes just a few minutes more.  Compared to other semi-automatic pistols, the Glock “Safe Action” has a total of 34 parts.  There is also the extra added convenience that the pieces on a Glock are interchangeable. 

Reliability

When an officer is placed in a situation where they are required to use their weapon, that situation can quickly escalate if the officer fires his gun and it jams.  The Glock is less likely to jam due to its high quality of craftsmanship and build.  Officers know that the Glock is a gun that can be trusted, and peace of mind comes with that knowledge.  The weapon has the reliability of the occurrence of little to no malfunction.

Weight

Compared to a pistol made of steel, a polymer Glock G-19, with a fully loaded magazine, weighs in at only 30.18 ounces.

Civilians Love The Glock As Well

With the world we live in today, many civilians are turning to the Glock.  As a society, the constant reminders around us that others have weapons and are looking to terrorize Americans make the Glock one of the most sought after guns.  Consider this weapon for your collection, whether it be for personal protection or an enjoyable day on the shooting range.

Historic! New Poll Records HIGHEST Level of Gun Ownership in America

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – According to an NBC News survey done between November 10–14, 2023, 52% of Americans claim to own a gun, either themselves or someone else in their home.

According to NBC News, this is the most significant percentage of gun ownership they have ever seen in a poll.

According to data in 2013, 42% of Americans were gun owners. In 2019, 46% of Americans reported that they, or a household member, was a gun owner.

Currently, 52% of the population is affected.

Furthermore, over the years of polling, the percentage of Democrats who possess guns has also climbed.

When asked if they or anybody in their home had a gun in 2004, 33% of Democrats replied they did. Forty-one percent of Democrats acknowledged owning a gun in 2023.

With 41% of Independents stating in 2004 that they or someone in their family had a gun and 45% saying the same in 2023, Independents have stayed relatively stable. (Independents who stated they owned a gun rose to 49% in 2013.)

According to a Harvard/Harris poll, six out of ten respondents stated that having a gun helps one defend themselves against criminals.

The absence of law and order has made Joe Biden a great gun salesman.

Nashville Covenant School Trans Shooter’s Manifesto LEAKED!

Nashville Covenant School Trans Shooter’s Manifesto LEAKED!

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – During a phone call on Monday morning, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) refused to confirm if the alleged leaked pages from the Nashville shooter’s manifesto were authentic.

The suicide note, 19 diaries, and other artifacts that the transgender suspect in the Nashville Christian school massacre is suspected of leaving behind have all been withheld from the public.

28-year-old Audrey Elizabeth Hale, a transgender former student, murdered three 9-year-olds and three adults last month in a mass shooting at the school.

Hale fired off 152 rounds during the targeted attack at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee.

The attack appears to be a deadly hate crime by a deranged trans shooter against Christian Americans.

The media has largely ignored the attack that resulted in six deaths, including three children.

The local authorities and FBI refused to release the manifesto to the public following the mass shooting by Hale in March.

Law enforcement officials were allegedly informed by TBI Director David Rausch in April 2023 that “the killer did not write about specific political, religious, or social issues” in these documents.

Numerous regional publications have verified the photos that Crowder released.

Phil Williams of News Channel 5 criticized the article, referring to it as a “selective leak of three pages.”

According to The Tennessee Star, “sources in the Tennessee General Assembly who were allowed to view the Covenant Killer Manifesto by the Metro Nashville Police Department” provided independent confirmation of the photos.

7th Circuit Court Rules AR-15s NOT Protected by 2nd Amendment

7th Circuit Court Rules AR-15s NOT Protected by 2nd Amendment

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, a three-judge panel, ruled on Friday that AR-15s are not protected by the Second Amendment, overturning an injunction against Illinois’ “assault weapons” prohibition.

In the case of Barnett v. Raoul, U.S. District Judge Stephen P. McGlynn—a nominee of Donald Trump—issued the preliminary injunction.

The Seventh Circuit heard an appeal of McGlynn’s ruling and rendered a 2 to 1 verdict against the injunction.

The three judges were Michael P. Brennan, appointed by Donald Trump; Diane P. Wood, appointed by Bill Clinton; and Frank Easterbook, appointed by Ronald Reagan.

The majority on the tribunal that overturned the injunction was made up of Easterbrook and Wood.

They cited Heller’s (2008) assertion that “the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited, like most rights.”

They continued by pointing out that the US Supreme Court determined in the Heller case that machine guns were not considered “bearable” weapons for the purposes of the Second Amendment since they might be “exclusively dedicated to military use.”

Next, Easterbrook and Wood discussed the parallels they discovered between M16s—which can fire in three-round burst mode or fully automatic—and AR-15s. They wrote:

“The similarity between the AR-15 and the M16 only increases when we take into account how easy it is to modify the AR-15 by adding a “bump stock” (as the shooter in the 2017 Las Vegas event had done) or auto-sear to it thereby making it, in essence, a fully automatic weapon.

In a decision addressing a ban on bump stocks enacted by the Maryland legislature, another federal court found that bump-stock devices enable “rates of fire between 400 to 800 rounds per minute.”

They added that both weapons “deliver the same kinetic energy” and employ the same ammo.

Judge Brennan dissented from the majority ruling, arguing that the Illinois “assault weapons” prohibition is unconstitutional because it lacks historical precedence in American culture and will fail if tried by Bruen (2022).

Brennan stated: “Preliminary injunctions against enforcement of the challenged laws are justified because the banned firearms and magazines warrant constitutional protection and the government parties have failed to meet their burden to show that their bans are part of the history and tradition of firearms regulation.”

The case is in the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and is Barnett v. Raoul, No. 23-1353.
