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.
This is the same woman who tried to carry her firearm on to the Arizona State Senate floor and who read a letter to the Senate claiming Hispanic students “hate America” and only want to become “gang members and gangsters.”
Perfect poster child for the NRA…
