A possible answer to the ever important question: WHY GANGSTERS HOLD GUNS SIDEWAYS?


In nearly all movies involving “gangsters” with guns, you’re bound to see the firearm cocked sideways. It was even a joke in the movie Date Night where Steve Carell’s character calls this position the “kill shot.”
A former U.S. Marine Corps marksmanship instructor thinks there could be some merit to that logic, according to the Daily Mail.
In an effort to save time, make a getaway and maintain some accuracy, Davis said the method being used is called “flash sight picture,” which aims down the side of the gun. It isn’t necessarily the most precise, but it can get the job done.
The Daily Mail reports finding Davis’ thoughts on this shooting style from the site Quora.com. On it he wrote:
The problem with tilt style shooting is that it is almost impossible to acquire a reliable sight alignment. The alignment in tilt style is achieved by making the weapon flat and aiming down the side.
In theory this works, but in practice you can’t accurately measure movement left or right and you have absolutely no way of knowing if the weapon is tilted down below your field of vision from the back of the weapon.
This means that you never actually take the same shot twice since you are never actually aiming the same way.
Overall, Davis writes he would not recommend this tactic because, although he calls it good in theory, it “fails miserably in the actual execution.”

Hands Up:’ ‘Can’t I’m holding gun weed in sagging pants’ pockets

THIBODAUX – Maybe it was the weight of things in his pants that caused them to sag enough to get a policeman’s attention.
A 16-year-old was walking in the middle of the road with his pants drooping below his underwear when an officer approached him.
Police said the officer several times told the teen to take his hands out of his sagging pants and hold his hands up. He refused, so the officer did a pat down, allegedly finding a handgun and five bags of marijuana.
That’s when the boy tried to run but pants falling down his legs made that a losing proposition and he was apprehended.
The teen was charged with Possession of a Stolen Firearm, Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana, Obstruction of a Public Roadway, Illegal Carrying of a Concealed Firearm, Illegal Carrying of a Firearm in the Presence of Illegal Narcotics, Resisting an Officer, and Curfew Violation.
He was also charged with violating the city’s saggy pants prohibition.

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

They go there to make mor…
