What a great AP dispatch about Senator Hutchison’s newest initiative (which, I admit, sounds perfectly reasonable). Still, she fondly recalls her piece:
“I have always had a handgun in the drawer next to my bed, and I would certainly again have one if it were legal in D.C.,” Hutchison said.
What a minute, I think. Doesn’t she have two small children? Never fear:
Her office later clarified that in her home in Dallas, Hutchison keeps her gun in a safe with a trigger lock, high above the reach of her two young children. Her office also said she would do the same in Washington if her bill becomes law and she is still living there.
Well played, senator. Well played.
