    KY Representative's Gun Accidentally Discharges in Capitol

    Another malevolent gun just misbehaving, this time with a Democrat.

    Representative Leslie Combs (D- Pikeville) says she was unloading a Ruger LCP .380 according to safety procedure when it accidentally fired. The bullet struck the floor and ricocheted into a bookcase.

    And the Kentucky chapter of Moms Demand Action want her job. Guess there's no forgiveness for a Dem who doesn't espouse their views.

    Re: KY Representative's Gun Accidentally Discharges in Capitol

    The only way the Ruger or KelTec will fire is if you pull the trigger . Which she did with out clearing the chamber it seems Now she wants a revolver Guess semi auto to difficult to remember how to properly clear

    As for the moms I say That's middle finger not thumb




    By way if you own a 2nd Gen Kel Tec 32, 380, or the PF-9 you are not suppose to dry fire with out a snap cap . To dry fire with out will damage the firing pin . The Frankenstein bolt that hold the extractor in place also holds the firing pin . and dry firing allows the firing pin to move to far forward and it hits the bolt. So always use a snap cap

    I wish people would stop calling it an LCP 380. There's LC380 and an LCP and they aren't the same gun. And the LC380 has a safety - the LCP does not have any safety device. I sure wouldn't tuck it into my pants.
    Sorry, Ruger rant off.

    We all know there is no such thing as a AD, however considering she is a democrat and female need to cut her some slack after educating her.

    For the 'elite' it's just an accident. If it were one of us it's be a felony.

    I wonder whose or what safety procedure she was using to "disarm" this pistol when it fired "on its own."

    Re: KY Representative's Gun Accidentally Discharges in Capitol

    Well least was pointed at floor and she was in her office. That 2nd time I know this has happened another Rep or Senator can't remember which he is. Popped his 380 KelTec off in his office . I think was a Dem also. That was few years back.

    No one really worried about this I checked with my brother. He's my mole over their in halls of capital .Except those silly Mother's anti gun people. They are really more noise than numbers. Just another bunch of bleeding hearts . That have nothing better to do in life than annoy other citizens with their No one Ive talk with had even heard of them before this.

    What a A Hole. She should be charged with a felony. I wonder what would happen if you or I did that.

    Not clear if that was classified an AD or ND or just a PD (premature), but fortunately there was no penetration. Musta been shooting Glasers...
