Rep. Leslie Combs accidentally fired her handgun Tuesday afternoon while unloading it in her office in the Capitol Annex — the building adjacent to the Capitol that houses legislative offices and committee meeting rooms.
“I’m a gun owner. It happens,” she said Wednesday, adding that she was following safety precautions as she unloaded her Ruger 380 semi-automatic handgun. No one was injured.
Combs said she has a concealed carry permit, allowing her to carry the gun, which she said she often carries in her purse.
It happens? Really? I thought you guys were the most responsible gun owners EVER. If accidental firings happen to even the most responsible gun owners, then maybe all of this carrying of guns around in public places isn’t such a smart idea, hmm?
Oh, and let the record reflect: Rep. Combs is a Democrat. It’s Kentucky, remember. We’re supposed to “respect the culture.”
No charges were filed because, hey, shit just happens. Guess we can all thank our lucky stars that no one was injured.
How much longer are we supposed to tolerate irresponsible behavior with firearms, anyway?
