NYPD Posts Trophy Shot Of 'Firearm' They Took Off The Streets

The New York Police Department proudly posted a trophy shot of the "firearm" they took from a gang member.

New York, NY - The New York Police Department took to social media Monday to post a trophy shot with their officers posing with a gun they took off the streets.

The alleged gun appears to be a completely non-functional revolver with no grip, weld marks on the barrel, and no apparent firing mechanism. It's not even clear if the "gun" was ever an actual firearm.

Shortly after posting the photos, they were promptly mocked in hundreds of social media comments.

"This firearm may not look like much, but it is still very dangerous in the wrong hands," NYPD said on their Facebook post. "Thankfully our Transit officers from District 34 were able to recover it after breaking up a fight near their precinct and placed the known gang member who possessed it under arrest."

No further information was released about the suspect who was in possession of the gun.

Of course the gun is still dangerous, in the wrong hands, like they said. Why would anyone hold onto that piece of metal, except to use it to intimidate or rob, etc.? It's not an effective self-defense weapon.

Which 10 y/o hoodrat did they take that off of?

Doesn’t matter. Even if it was real, the nitwit criminal justice reforms in NYS by Fredo would just give the perp free stuff and let him go.

OBVIOUSLY, the NYPD's Union is VERY WEAK or this would have NEVER gone this far. Stop and Frisk should have never gone away, the Patrol force is in danger and the WHOLD NYPD is a Laughing Stock. The Unions members need to throw the old leadership OUT and elect some that are actually COPS.

Ever seen a person who has been pistol whipped. Not pretty. Heck I was in on a scene one night at a small local motel to where the clerk was killed with a wooden pencil. Everyone at first thought he had been shot in the neck with a 22 but it turn out to be a yellow wooden pencil, so guess you can say look are deceiving.

At least it wasn't part of those gun "buybacks" What buyback are they talking about anyway? The government never sold guns to citizens. Idiotic. They're just confiscating your gun and giving you enough money to buy a dinner for four at McDonalds.

What a joke! These cowards with badges enforcing unconstitutional gun laws make me sick! This tyranny must end and it must end soon! The Supreme Court needs to set these unconstitutional States straight!
