The Woman With The Pink Gun of the Day: In a recent report filed by Arizona Republic reporter Richard Ruelas, a claim is made that Arizona state Sen. Lori Klein (R-LD6) — a staunch gun rights advocate noted for carrying a loaded handgun into the state Capitol two days after the Tucson shooting — pointed her raspberry-pink .380 Ruger at Ruelas to “[show] off the laser sighting.”
According to Ruelas, Klein told him the gun has no safety but there was no need to worry because she doesn’t have her hand on the trigger.
Klein has since released a statement claiming it was Ruelas who put himself “in the line of the laser sight” during the demonstration by “[sitting] down in the sofa in front of me.”
Ruelas disputes this, as do his notes and recordings: “[A]t one point [on the recordings], Klein tells the photographer that she had pointed the gun at Ruelas, and Ruelas said the same thing as the two talked over each other on the tape recording.”

  21. hopesprings said: I am not against private citizens owning firearms, but anyone who is a SANE gun enthusiast knows that you never, ever point a weapon at a person. Even if you know it is not loaded. It creates a bad habit, that can lead to tragic accidents.
