Arizona Lawmaker Points Gun at Reporter

The latest example in Arizona insanity: A state senator, Lori Klein, pointed a gun at the chest of a reporter from the Arizona Republic during an interview. Klein was apparently demonstrating the gun, which she also carried into the state legislature two days after Gabby Giffords’ shooting. “Oh it’s so cute,” she said, before turning on the laser sight and aiming it at his chest. The gun lacked a safety, but she told him not to worry because "I just didn't have my hand on the trigger.” Klein originally replied to the report by accusing the reporter of stepping in front of the gun while she showed it off; however, in a later statement, in which she said she’d give no interviews, she did not blame the reporter.
