No one injured
The first day of the 2014 legislative session started off with a bang Tuesday when Rep. Leslie Combs fired her gun unintentionally in her Capitol Annex office.
Combs, D-Pikeville, said in a statement released Wednesday that no one was "hurt or in harmís way." She had failed to first ensure the gun was unloaded and clear, prior to performing the final unloading step of pulling the trigger.
"I urge everyone to be extremely cautious with their firearm," Combs said in the statement. "I know from personal experience how easy it is to discharge a firearm if the proper safety procedures are not assiduously followed and verified."
Yeah, well. Live and learn. At least she pointed the darned thing in a moderately safe direction prior to putting that booger hook on the gun without first unloading it and verifying it was unloaded. I guess that's something.
