Jerome M. Hauer, Gov. Andrew Cuomo's director of homeland security, took out his handgun and used the laser sighting device attached to the barrel as a pointer in a presentation to a foreign delegation, according to public officials. It happened Oct. 24 in Albany at the highly secure state emergency operations center below State Police headquarters.
These officials, one of whom claimed to be an eyewitness, said that three Swedish emergency managers in the delegation were rattled when the gun's laser tracked across one of their heads before Hauer found the map of New York, at which he wanted to point.
Hauer, commissioner of the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, was disabled by a stroke a few years ago and can be unsteady. He isn't a law enforcement official. He carries the loaded 9-millimeter Glock in a holster into state buildings, an apparent violation of state law barring state employees from bringing weapons to the workplace, several witnesses say.
According to an alleged eyewitness of the incident, two people moved out of the line of fire after Hauer brought out the gun.
Now that's funny! That's what I call being resourceful !,, although it sounds like he scared the crap out of people...
why didnt he just take the pointer off the gun and use it?
unless it was fixed- and if thats the case(which it isnt Im sure)- then he should have kept it holstered.
nevermind- why bother? let them do as they please- they will do it regardless of what people think(being dumb that is).
