    Howdy Folks!
    The article makes it sound like she pointed the weapon at the reporter in some confrontational manner.
    Evidently, she was just showing off the laser when she did so, which is nevertheless idiotic. You don't
    point a loaded pistol at somebody EVER in capricious fashion.

    She needs to be compelled to take a legitimate handgun course, say from FrontSight or other reputable
    firearms instructor because her "informal training" isn't panning out! What a dolt! What a nincompoop!
    What an immiment danger to herself or others.

    Two words lady... Negligent Discharge! It can happen to anybody but in your case could have resulted
    in a dead reporter in your office. And now you wonder why you're at the center of a fecal festival of
    irate attention? Get out there and get some actual training, why don'cha? Bet you can afford it on your
    namby, pamby salary from the state of Arizona!

    She's a regular Moonbat Mistress conservadork alternative to what some on this forum call 'libtards'!

    Just read the same article elsewhere...

    If I remember correctly, one of the cardinal rules of gun safety is never point your weapon at anything you do not intend to shoot...

    And no she not helping the view of her right to own and carry in the first place.

    She is lucky dude didn't take it from her and beat her with it!!!

    Sorry, but i wouldn't take the medias word for it. Especially left wing anti gun huffington post lol. I'd wait for the facts to come out. She says the reporter sat down in front of the gun.

    Tough to know what really happened. The reporter didn't press charges, no one else pressed charges. I at least give her kudos for being a politician with enough guts to carry a gun and not be apologetic about it. If she really did point it at him, shame on her, but I doubt it was intentional and she wouldn't be the first to accidently sweep someone. Not justifying it, you should never point your gun at something you don't intend to destroy. Guess we'll see if more comes out about it.

    Hmm, what would an ordinary and reasonable gun-familiar person do to a another person pointing a gun and laser at his chest????

    Stupidity is my guess.

    "I just didn't have my hand on the trigger," Klein told the reporter, by way of reassurance. - Source

    Er, sorry, Ms. Kein, but FAIL. You need to attend a basic firearms safety course.

    "She said she had cleared the gun's chamber before displaying it."

    What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?

    RULE #1: All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.

    RULE #2: Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)


    Would her actions fall under the heading of "well-intentioned but ill-advised?"

    "The other side of the story":

    "During the interview, she didn’t whip out her gun to show it off. The reporter specifically asked to see it. He then wanted her to demonstrate the Crimson Trace laser. Senator Kline complied, pointing the gun toward a wall and activating the laser.

    The reporter then approached her, momentarily getting himself between the gun and the wall. The Senator said that as soon as she realized the laser was on his chest, she immediately lowered it. She also made a point of saying that she doesn’t know whether or not Ruelas got in front of the gun intentionally or not."
