Insensitive Trigger Leads to Death In Home Invasion

Trigger Warning: Poorly designed firearms
Marcia Gonzalez was sitting alone in her living room last Tuesday when she apparently heard noise by the back window.
She skulked to get a view, noted two intruders, and ran to grab her loaded Smith & Wesson revolver. Ms. Gonzalez pointed her firearm directly at the two intruders. But when she squeezed the trigger, it was too heavy and she was unable to fire her weapon.
“It was the worst murder-abortion-incest I’ve ever seen,” said Officer Mathew Roemer who was first to the scene. “In addition, there signs of identity marginalization, class insensitivity, and offensive narratives of exclusion, oppression, racism, colonialism, religious persecution, violence, and suicide that were incredibly disturbing.”
“The time it took simply to clean up the house was just insane.”
“In my 20 years on the force, I’ve never seen anything so difficult to process,” Officer Roemer said. “I’m simply taxed mentally and emotionally.”
Officer Roemer also noted that Ms. Gonzalez should have tested her firearm directly after buying it.
“The only consolation I have is that the victim was definitely at fault.”
“Let this be a warning; trigger sensitivity matters.”
