Gun Malfunction Stopped Attempted McDonald's Massacre: Police
NBC DFW ^ | 9/26/13 | Scott Gordon

Posted on 09/26/2013 6:20:03 PM PDT by jimbo123

Fort Worth police said the city "avoided a major tragedy" Tuesday night when a gunman tried to fire at least five shots inside crowded McDonald's restaurant but his pistol malfunctioned.

Surveillance video released late Thursday shows Jestin Anthony Joseph, 24, pulling the trigger several times while attempting to rob customers and employees, police said.

Incredibly, the gunman walked outside and fired his gun successfully in the air, police said. He walked back inside and tried to shoot again, but the gun again malfunctioned.

Sounds like God was the real trigger man in this case.

Too bad there wasn’t someone there with a gun that worked, someone who could have ended the threat, for then and in the future.

When I was a kid, a man tried to kill a Mobile, AL cop. He fired his revolver six times and the gun did not fire a single time.

When the gunman was subdued they took his gun and all six primers had dents in them. The hammer spring was apparently just not quite strong enough to fire those particular rounds.

I suspect that cop got religion if he didn’t already have it.

He pulled the trigger several times, no boom, so went outside—boom;
back inside, pulled the trigger some more but still no boom.

“I didn’t mean to hurt anyone. People are going to think I’m crazy.”

It was just a big misunderstanding. Give Atty General Steadman a call and you’ll own McDonalds, the raciss honkies, you poor boy.

Looks like a semi-auto. My guess is that it was dirty, and couldn't eject the expended brass and chamber the next round. He probably had fired it sometime in the day before going into the McDonald's, didn't realize it was jammed, failed to fire it in McDonald's, went out side and pulled the slide back, thereby releasing the jam, and fired a shot into the air, which then jammed the gun again. Or it could be a miracle from God.

If I had been there, when I saw that failed trigger pull, I would have been on him in a flash.

I have a 1911 style .380. You DO have to hold it correctly or the grip safety won't let the weapon fire.

I bought a brand new Kel-tec 9mm and the third shot FTF. Same for the forth and fifth. Turns out it doesn’t like that particular brand of ammo. Haven’t had that problem with subsequent brands, but I don’t think I can trust it for a carry weapon.

Get rid of it before it gets you killed. Never take a Kel-tec to a gun fight. Save up and get a battle tested man-stopper.

Joseph’s mother said she believes the gun malfunctioned “because we were praying.”

Loughman said at least 15 employees and patrons, including children, were inside the McDonald’s when the robber entered shortly after 9 p.m.

It's been done in the People's Republik of Kalifornia. You can't buy a handgun here which has not been proven to be NOT UNSAFE.

What a relief to know that hoodlums in Kalifornia are almost certainly going to be armed with effective weapons.

What’s really funny is that if he “didn’t mean to hurt no one” why did he go back inside after successfully firing it outside and try to shoot people again? It’s bullSh*t, he made up his story of hearing voice to try and get off on the crazy defense, and the fact that he said there was no better way to deal with his anger shows he is just an animal.

Actually, the gun was a functioning firearm, but the Hoodie was looking for the HoMeBoy Sights and that lack is what prevented the tragedy.

I think the same family owned the Davis, Lorcin, Jennings, and Raven pistols.

They were made from pot metal with steel where it was needed. They had poor triggers and fairly poor sights but surprisingly the ones I have tried worked perfectly.

The cheap little Jennings was particularly accurate despite the rifling looking like it was extremely shallow.

The worst functioning pistol I ever owned was an American made copy of the Italian Bernardelli. The Italian one was great but the American one (it was a Sterling brand) was a jammer. I doubt if I ever fired more than 1 shot in a row without it jamming. An absolute piece of crap.

Yeah, even though it’s a little pricy to be shooting the self defense rounds at the range, one should run a couple of boxes through the carry weapon before relying on a particular brand. Scary to think of it not firing when you actually need it.

Not surprising. Pookie will load 9mm Makarov into a magazine designed for 9mm Para and wonder why his gat “ain’t doing right.”

Not to mention they do a ghetto version of “limp wristing” where they not only turn the weapons sideways, they push the gun out as they shoot, and again wonder why it stove pipes.

Didn’t get a good enough luck to identify the brand of pistol. However, good chance it was a glock and he was “limp-wristing” the pistol when attempting to use it. The only real safety on glocks is the trigger safety. The gun will not fire unless even steady pressure is applied. If one were to hold a glock loosely and moving it about like a tv gangster, there is a fair chance it will not fire. Thank God this criminal was very stupid.

‘Get rid of it before it gets you killed. Never take a Kel-tec to a gun fight. Save up and get a battle tested man-stopper.’

Good advice. I have been sitting on the fence, but you’ve convinced me. Been thinking about a Glock 26, or perhaps a Sig. Might even step up to a .45. This one stays in the car, so I hated to spend too much, but I just don’t completely trust the Kel-tec. Looking for something fairly compact. A friend bought the little Diamondback 9mm, but I haven’t heard good things about it either.
