Another NRA Professional

Posted on the 12 July 2011 by Mikeb302000
Where else?  Arizona:
A state lawmaker known for championing the rights of gun-owners pointed a loaded firearm at the chest of a reporter during a recent interview at the Capitol.

Republican Sen. Lori Klein was showing off her raspberry-pink handgun when she aimed it at a journalist who was interviewing her in the lounge just outside the Senate chambers.
According to the story that was published Sunday in the Arizona Republic, Klein's .380 Ruger was loaded and did not have a safety to keep the gun from going off.
But Klein told the reporter, Richard Ruelas, that he didn't need to worry because, "I just didn't have my hand on the trigger."
Not to worry though...
Klein later told the Republic reporter that she has taken informal gun training and was "taught gun safety by her father."
In gunloon-speak, this means she is an expert in all things firearm-related.
