More on Hostettler

The discredited USA Today has more on the Rep. Hostettler story. Considering the source, I am not at all surprised by statements such as this:
Hostettler said he had placed the Glock 9mm semiautomatic handgun in his briefcase early in Congress' two-week spring recess, then forgot about it. He said the gun had a cartridge containing 14 bullets, but the chamber was empty and the safety was on.
Regardless of the accuracy of the statement (I know I don't have to point out the glaring problem with it) its great to see a member of Congress who supports the right to keep and bear arms, is willing to go through the same pains as other citizens by applying for a CCW permit (instead of using political connections to speed the process) and chooses the reliability of combat tupperware.
