“I urge everyone to be extremely cautious with their firearm…I know from personal experience how easy it is to discharge a firearm accidentally.” That’s Kentucky state legislator Leslie Combs stating the painfully obvious. Well, obvious unless you’re an elected official. As yahoo.com quotes fellow Dem Rep. Jeff Greer who was in the room at the time, “She was emptying the weapon and she thought that it was empty and pointed it away and down and pulled the trigger and it went off. Thankfully, no one was hurt. I know she feels terrible about it. … It’s just an unfortunate event.” Yes, a very unfortunate event . . .
Unfortunate that she’s too pig-ignorant to know that simply dropping the magazine doesn’t ensure an empty gun. Unfortunate that she thinks pulling the trigger is the best way to check that her pistol is clear and safe. And unfortunate that her 94th district constituents selected this specimen to represent them in Frankfort.
Her luck is about to improve, though, because she’s going to receive some of our commemorative hardware. And if her staff is really lucky, maybe it will stop the next round she negligently launches in her office.
