Skip to comments.Maniac went for cop-killer bullets: police (.223 ammo)
Posted on 04/10/2012 9:42:53 AM PDT by lowbridge
The crazed gunman who wounded four Brooklyn cops was reaching for another rifle loaded with more powerful, armor-piercing bullets to inflict deadly injuries just before he was stopped, officials said yesterday.
If he would have been able to grab that gun, this would have been a lot more tragic. It would have been in Gods hands, said a police official familiar with the case.
Its apparent [the suspect] wanted to shoot it out with cops and go out in a blaze of glory.
Cops said the ammo from suspect Nakwon Foxworths sawed-off military assault weapon would have easily pierced the Kevlar shield that hero Detective Kenneth Ayala used to protect his comrades and himself from the perps initial 12-bullet barrage from a 9mm revolver.
The more powerful bullets also would have gone through the officers vests, police said.

If Barack Obama had fathered a son, he would have looked like Nakwon Foxworth:
Nakwon Foxworth, 33, had previously been convicted of attempted murder as a juvenile and landed two years behind bars. He was later arrested for robbery and weapons possession, and did 10 more years. He was released in July 2009.
The second pistol found was a High Standard Sentinel 9-shot .22 LR revolver with altered serial number. (10 years in Club Fed for a defaced serial number or markings.)
The third was a sawed-off Ruger Mini-14 .223 rifle. (10 years in Club Fed for a sawed-off barreled rifle with over all length of less than 26 inches.)
I don't know if the Feds have a “3 Strikes Law”, but Nakwon may have qualified for a life sentence without parole as a habitual criminal.
***Only cops should have cop killer bullets, silly! <./sarc>***
Citizens should ONLY be allowed to own powder puff rounds like the .222 Rem and .222 Rem Mag.
Or the .22-250!
“s&w, ruger and taurus all make 9mm revolvers.”
true, but they are as common as a flintlock. Idiots trying to scare people and write whatever they want. A barrage of 12 rounds.
***Well there actually are 9mm revolvers***
Ruger made some back in the 1980s.
they must mean SS-109 green tip?
The media generally relies on the police for their gun info. LOL, anyone knows the police are experts on guns and ammo and.... Ya know they’re more professional...LOL.
.223 FMJ at under a 100 yards will penetrate most kevlar only jackets (IIA or III). Balistic plates will stop it, but the kevlar basically will not stop projectiles at 2000FPS. Works good on 1000 fps and under pistol rounds.
Here is a well done test: http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/bot24.htm
Quote: “I’ve said it before.....rifles are rifles and pistols are pistols.”
***A semi-auto is NOT a revolver.***
I beg to differ with you. The British built one on a Webley-Fosbery frame. You can see Sean Connery use it in ZARDOZ.
Also, around 1970, some publishers released a Zane Grey novel, NEVADA. The cover art showed a cowboy pulling and firing to his left, two Colt Navy revolvers. You know he was firing fast as the air was full of ejecting cases. ;-D
Based on the picture here, it’s a Browning BDM, not a Hi-Power.
I love the Ruger with the pistol grip and huge scope, LOL.
It was a semi-automatic revolver.
Have you ever “seen” a semi-auto revolver?
NO, I did not think so.
I think there is a setting....
Setting 1 - Paper Targets
Setting 2 - People
Setting 3 - Cops
Setting 4 - Zombies
Setting 5 - Aircraft
Setting 6 - Stealth Aircraft
Setting 7 - Tanks
Setting 8 - Trains
Setting 9 - City Blocks
Setting 10 - Major Metropolitan Areas
Their bullets must have been on setting 3.
Have to watch out for those 9mm revolvers too:)
That thing LOOKS deadly. /s
Thanks for clarifying what the (useful idiot) “reporter” really missed by a country mile.
Where do they get people like the “reporter” who wrote this.
The only thing worse than inaccurate and non-factual reporting is freeper self-appointed experts swearing that there are no such thing as:
sawed off functioning semi-auto rifles
Just another dumbass alleged “journalist” who wouldn’t know a handgun from a howitzer and damn sure doesn’t know that those rounds are specified by the GENEVA CONVENTION. Unless a major structure is hit, these full metal jacket rounds are far more apt to penetrate and pass through, leaving a cleaner, less devastating injury than soft-nose projectiles, giving those wounded by them a far better chance of survival.
My God, WHERE DO THESE ALLEGED NEWSPAPERS GET THESE UNINFORMED AND IGNORANT MORONS? And could those hiring practices explain the growth of the famed Freeper Media Dinosaur Deathwatch List?
Or the 25-06.
