Click, Click, BANG: Understanding Why Darren Wilson’s Pistol Did Not Fire

Some people don’t understand the testimony given by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson when he described the fight over control of his Sig P229 pistol with strong-arm robbery suspect Michael Brown. In that testimony, Wilson describes how he tried to fire inside the vehicle as he and Brown struggled over the .40 S&W semi-automatic, and it went “click” twice without firing, and finally fired the third time he pulled the trigger.

YouTuber TheYankeeMarshal gives a great explanation of why Officer Wilson’s gun worked exactly as designed, and would not fire while out of battery.
