He said / she said
I was asked to show the reporter my weapon so that they could take pictures of it. I ensured that the chamber was clear before displaying the weapon. That is basic gun safety and something that I do instinctively, just like virtually every gun owner.
The photographer, who was behind me at the time, asked me to show him the laser sight and I did so, turning it on and shining it on the wall in front of me (away from the photographer). During this demonstration, the reporter came and sat down in the sofa in front of me, placing himself in the line of the laser sight.
I put bold around the last sentence because the media omits that little bit from it’s reprint of her release for some reason.
Now, who hasn’t shown a gun to someone curious about it? Sure, stop touching it and all. But people do show other people their guns. And I hope the wall she pointed it at was a safe direction.
