Fact CheckThe image below was copied from a Los Angeles Times opinion piece online today.  Use your appropriate mouse button to enlarge the image.

Note the image’s caption identifies the three handguns as “Glock handguns. ”

Well, no.  While we are not firearms aficionados, we do immediately recognize the handgun in the upper right as being a Sig Sauer (very likely a P226), but certainly not a Glock.

Maybe before editorializing about gun control, Times writer Scott Martelle might want to take a handgun orientation and safety course.

ADDENDUM on 05-29-2014 at 2:30 PM:  We just followed the link to the entire LA Times op-ed piece and notice the word “Glock” has now been removed from the photo’s caption.  However, there is no mention of a correction in the op-ed.


  1. Los Angeles? Home of Hollywood, the biggest promoter of gun violence in the history of the planet.

    The only way I figure anyone pushes for a total gun ban these days is because they own stock in companies that manufacture guns.

  2. Dan,

    Good observations.

    And given Scott Martelle’s penchant for distortion and inaccuracy, he’s a viable candidate to be the next editor of the Coeur d’Alene Press when he decides to evacuate Irvine.
