    U.S. Capitol cops have to abandon their shooting range after “safety” improvements caused unsafe conditions. (And what’s that about getting a little nick at the corner of your eye, fella? Not wearing your goggles, were you???) (H/T Jim Bovard)

    Capitol Police.
    "Konczos said one officer was slightly injured last week when a bullet fragment ricocheted and struck him in the corner of one eye. Police officials said they were unaware of any injuries at the range, and Konczos said the officer had not reported it because it was minor."

    emphasis mine.



    "Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine would not describe the problem leading to the closure, but said upgrades to the gun range were to make it modern and state-of-the-art, as well as to improve safety features. "


    I guess that is modern and state of the art: Unable to be used.

    Question:
    Why does it matter if the range is closed? The coppers soon will not be allowed to use their weapons anyway!!!
