postheadericon *WARNING: GRAPHIC* Bodycam Footage Released Of Police-Involved Shooting During Traffic Stop

DOUGLAS COUNTY, CO — Amazing body camera footage shows just how little time law enforcement officers sometimes have before they have to choose what path they are going to take in reaction to threats.

Deyon Marcus Rivas-Maestas, 25, turned what was supposed to be a friendly stranded motorist assist into a nightmare when he pulled an AR-style rifle seemingly out of nowhere and attacked an officer who came up to his vehicle, according to KKTV.

The deputy, Brad Proulx, drew his firearm out and engaged Rivas-Maestas.

Look at the video above — it happened so fast.

Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock is proud of Proulx’s actions.

“The result of this shooting is a testament to the training each of our deputies are provided,” Spurlock said according to KKTV.

“This just shows how necessary it is for deputies to be able to make split-second decisions, not only for their own protection but for the protection of the community.”

Most people know that traffic stops and roadside visits are extremely dangerous, and this just goes to prove that case even further.

“Traffic stops are probably one of the most dangerous things our law enforcement officers do,” El Paso County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Jackie Kirby said according to KKTV.

“He was just on routine patrol and wanted to assist a motorist… and then it elevated very very quickly.”

“What’s not captured is that threat, that emotion, that adrenaline that that deputy is feeling,” added Kirby.

Rivas-Maestas was sent to the hospital where he was treated and released. He was then taken into custody to face his charges of stupidity.

Hats off to this deputy for reacting with the speed of a quick-draw shooter.

postheadericon Two New Gun Control Videos Were Released This Week And We’re Trying To Determine Which One Is The Worst

If there’s one truth about YouTube, it’s this: If the owner of a video disables comments and upvotes/downvotes, it’s a video that should not be trusted. Agreed?

Alright, moving on.

VIDEO 1

The first video was produced by the Brady Campaign and features a Alice In Wonderland theme. We’re off to a great start, I know.

In the video, Alice shoots herself in the face. Yea, really.

I understand that they want to get people to lock up their guns, but using a theme such as Alice In Wonderland is just… creepy and weird.

The video is said to be a response to a recent NRA publication titled Little Red Riding Hood (Has A Gun), but that story is about good vs evil. Granny is ready to take that wolf out.

HotAir.com reports;

As the Washington Free Beacon reports, [The Brady Campaign] responded with a frank, well researched argument about how these portrayals are unproductive and offered alternate suggestions for crafting a more nuanced, accurate argument.

Naw… I’m just kidding. They produced their own fairy tale which features Alice of Wonderland fame shooting herself in the face.

And of course, they’ve disabled user comments. Their video likes aren’t looking too fantastic, either.

Their likes vs dislikes aren’t looking too healthy, either.

VIDEO 2

Moving on to what I’m really writing this article about… video 2.

The second video comes to the world from States United to Prevent Gun Violence. This is the first I’ve heard of them, and they sure do what to make a point. I feel the point was missed, though. By a long shot.

In the video, they fake a new action movie FILLED WITH GUNS!!!! and dupe people into thinking it’s a real movie that’s just been released. Once the theater fills and the movie starts rolling, everyone in the audience is in for a rude awakening.

Give it a watch, and then let’s continue.

Yea, I know. I’ll just start with the obvious parts.

The Glorification Of Guns

Their main argument is that our culture glorifies guns in Hollywood and beyond. Everyone seems excited to see this new blood, guts and guns movie. But what’s wrong with that, really? I appreciate a great action movie and if it has guns in it, so be it.

Fact check: I’m not a criminal, but I enjoy movies with guns. Shocking!

One of my favorite movie franchises is the Ocean’s trilogy. You know, Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13. Even though I have a slight obsession with the movies (that and the movie 21, which is based on the true story of some college kids and a professor knocking over Vegas), I’m still not about to go rob a casino. Or do anything illegal, for that matter. Do you know why?

Fact check: I’m not a criminal.

Just because you like something, or like the idea of something, doesn’t mean you’re destined to act out that very thing. There’s such thing as entertainment and for the vast majority of folks, that’s where it ends.

We’ve Covered Most Of The Stories They Displayed

And for good reason. We share these exact stories and videos so that people can have a better idea of the crime that happens in our country. And to be prepared for it if they choose to do so. Remember, each real ‘scene’ that they showed in the video above was perpetrated by a bad guy and not a law-abiding gun owner. You know, the other 99.99999% of people with guns.

It’s Still Not The Guns, And It Never Will Be

Mid-video, they flash the following words on screen:

ScreenHunter_377 Apr. 14 16.23

If I could make a correction to their misdirected point…

ScreenHunter_377 Apr. 14 16.23

What it boils down to at the end of the day is what it always has… bad people exist and will try and do harm to others, whether they have a gun or not. In these particular examples, the bad guys used guns. But what if the victims were able to fight back in an effort to save themselves and others? Would they still be against guns then?

I should create the same movie, but with real-life stories of law-abiding gun owners successfully defending themselves against the same bad guys we see in theirs. I wonder how the crowd would react with that motion picture.

The Reactions Weren’t Thought Out

When interviewed after the presentation was over, a few people gave their thoughts to the camera about what they just saw. Let’s take a look at a few of those responses.

  1. “When you see what really happens, it’s kind of pretty disgusting and disturbing.”
    I couldn’t agree more, and I’ll even say that it’s real life. Because it is. No person of sane mind would disagree with this first comment and if they do, they’re likely one of the bad guys.
  2. “It was horrible, actually. I found it way too disturbing.”
    Again, this is a valid statement made by anyone with a heart. We’re on track so far.
  3. “You’re waiting for someone to save the day, and you’re waiting for everybody to, you know, stand up and we’re all ok. But it’s not like that.”
    Wouldn’t this be a great argument for guns in the hands of the good guys that were unfortunate enough to be looking evil in the eyes? It’s a good enough argument for me, I’ll tell you that.
  4. “You’ve got to be crazy to think that somehow guns are making us safer.”
    There are hundreds of stories that make the news each year that demonstrate guns saving lives, and thousands more that are not reported on. Just because we don’t see it on a daily basis doesn’t mean they don’t happen. I am in a position where I see bad guys doing bad things each day, based on the stories I cover. Adding a good guy with a gun into nearly every scenario is game-changing… for the good guy.
  5. “Go watch this before you buy a gun.”
    As if this gentleman is saying that everyone who goes out and buys a gun is going to head out to murder people with it. That’s not how this works, and it’s not ever going to be like that. I propose a documentary on alcohol-related car accidents and any other negative effects of alcohol with the theme; “Before you decide to drink alcohol, watch this movie.” We know that everyone who has a drink will wind up killing someone, right? Wrong. It’s called being responsible, and the same responsibility comes with gun ownership.

This video also doesn’t do too well in the comments section, or the like and dislikes. Why is that? Because both were disabled for this video. I didn’t even know you could hide the likes/dislikes count from a video until today.

ScreenHunter_378 Apr. 14 16.41

Once again, a lot of time was wasted with the creation of a video that really doesn’t prove anything. At all. If anything was proven, it’s that more people should be in a position to defend themselves against the crazies. With guns.
