Arizona State Rep. Points Her ‘Raspberry-Pink’ Loaded Gun At Journalist

It’s 2011, the year that Republicans point their guns at the media. First came Maine state Rep. Frederick Ladd Wintle (R) who threatened to shoot a photographer in a Dunkin Donuts parking lot. Now comes Arizona state Sen. Lori Klein (R). While showing off her “raspberry-pink handgun,” she “aimed it at a journalist” who was interviewing her about her pro-gun positions just outside the Senate chambers. The gun, a .380 Ruger, was loaded, and Klein did not have the safety on. Klein, however, told the reporter not to worry because “I just didn’t have my hand on the trigger.”
