Dumbass of the Week

I just realized that this blog is over a year old. Wow. Over a year of me talking all kinds of smack. And not one of you fuckers wished me a happy blogiversary. JERKS!

In honor of our (I mean “our” in a majestic plural kind of way) 1 year anniversary, I’ve decided to actually write something! SHOCKING! In order to ease my way back into writing with some kind of regularity, I’ve decided to give you all a DotW. And the dumbass for this week is

Arizona State Senator Lori Klein! Why, you ask, does this lovely looking lady deserve to be DotW? Well, the fact that she’s a state senator in one of the most batshit crazy states ought to be reason enough. But no, Ms. Klein had to take the crazy to the next level. From the NY Daily News:

An Arizona lawmaker is under fire for pointing a loaded pistol at a reporter’s chest during an interview about gun rights.

I know what you’re thinking, HOLY FUCKBALLS, THIS LADY IS CRAZY! Relax, lovelies. It’s not that bad. This is why you should always read the entire article. Let’s continue:

Republican Sen. Lori Klein, a staunch Second Amendment advocate, pulled out a pink .380 Ruger from her purse to show the Arizona Republic’s Richard Ruelas.

“Oh, it’s so cute,” Klein said in a lounge at the state Capitol building as she pointed the weapon’s red laser at the journalist, according to a story published in the newspaper Sunday.

Klein assured Ruelas there was no need for concern because “I just didn’t have my hand on the trigger.”

See? It’s not like she was gonna shoot the guy. She wasn’t being crazy. She was just being terrifically stupid! That makes it better, right? RIGHT? RIGHT?! Here’s the icing on the dumb-as-dog-shit cake:

Klein added that she had informal gun-training sessions and was taught weapons safety by her father.

Alrighty, here we go! ::rolls up invisible sleeves::

1 – If I can’t buy a toy gun that looks real, then people shouldn’t be able to buy a real gun that looks fake.
2 – This is not the first dumbass thing Klein has done. She read a racist letter on the of the state senate. Why does she hate Mexicans so much?
3 – Anyone with an ounce of common sense, even someone with “informal gun training”, knows that you NEVER EVER EVER point a loaded weapon at someone! So either she’s full of shit and no one has ever taught her how to use a gun, or the people who have shown her are equally as stupid and irresponsible as Klein.

I actually support people’s Second Amendment rights. SURPRISE! Not all leftists are lipstick liberals. I don’t have a problem with hunting, with people owning guns for personal protection, etc.. I do have a problem with dumbasses owning guns, and Senator Klein makes my case for me. Without proper safety training and permits, dumbasses do dumbass things and people’s lives are put in danger. You have the right to own a gun. But with that right comes the responsibility of learning how to safely own and operate your firearm.

Remember, guns don’t kill people. Dumbasses kill people.

    Superb choice, BCM! And damn George W. Bush for giving his fellow idiots the idea that anyone can be elected to public office. Just because anyone can doesn’t mean anyone should.

    Wow. I’m not even a gun advocate and even I know that pointing a loaded gun at ANYONE completely goes against gun safety and not for nothing, a Second Amendment advocate like herself should know better. (Item 3)

    She should be charged with reckless endangerment and assault, because what she did was very illegal.

    Arizona Statute 13-1201. Endangerme­nt; classifica­tion

    A. A person commits endangerme­nt by recklessly endangerin­g another person with a substantia­l risk of imminent death or physical injury.

    B. Endangerme­nt involving a substantia­l risk of imminent death is a class 6 felony. In all other cases, it is a class 1 misdemeanor.

    Imagine for a moment that the reporter was the one who brandished a concealed weapon in the face of Klein… I would assume that reporter would do some jail time at the very least.
