Ignorance can be remedied, but there’s no cure for stupidity. This is really scary…
A freshman Arizona state Senator may be in need of some gun safety lessons.
Richard Ruelas, a reporter for The Arizona Republic, found himself staring down the barrel of Republican state Sen. Lori Klein’s raspberry-pink firearm during a recent interview at the Capitol.
“Oh, it’s so cute,” Klein said of the .380 Ruger that she carries in purse at all times.
While the loaded pistol had no safety and the laser pointer was centered on the reporter’s chest, Klein explained that there was no need to worry.
“I just didn’t have my hand on the trigger,” she said.
I wonder if the Arizona NRA will condemn Sen.Klein for this stupid and arrogant stunt. Does this count as assault? I think it’s actionable.
‘The gun just went off’ has been said many times, but juries tend to be unsympathetic. James Langevin could tell this fool a thing or two about the dangers of getting careless with guns.
