    It is also (mostly) their training or lack thereof. They are taught how to give speeding tickets not how to behave/think in a live shooter situation.

    Just one more example of art imitating life, and vice versa.
    Here (USA) there's a continued move to implicate all manner of various manufacturers complicit with perpetrators for misuse of their products, and far less attention toward pursuit, prosecution and penalization the criminal element. Talk about low-hanging fruit. One party has the distinction of capitalizing on that very thing; and a base so blind to not see it as such.
    Going to you-know-where in the proverbial hand-basket... When I was young, occasionally wished to be older, even by a generation or more. I do not recall anything that'd be the reverse.
    Sincerely,

    Thanks for posting & ditto to Ralph's observation which was my first thought.
    Look a little closer. The tip of his finger is on the side of the trigger guard, not on the actual trigger. I agree with several, it is a shame this even is necessary.
