New York DHS head uses gun as laser pointer
#1
Quote:According to public officials, Jerome M. Hauer, commissioner of New York State’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, was giving a presentation to a foreign delegation when he needed to point to something on his briefing about Superstorm Sandy.

Lacking a laser pointer, Hauer drew his handgun and used the laser target designator attached to it to draw attention to the salient point.

According to the officials the incident “rattled” three members of the Swedish delegation “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.”

Sweeping is one of the 7 greatest sins.

ANYONE who does it is a schmuck. Nice to know the guy New York State is paying to protect the country's 4th largest population is a nutjob.


If you're going to use a gunsight laser as a Powerpoint presentation device, then take it off the fucking rails before you do it, dumbass.

I'm guessing he took it off the firearm first and that this is a sensationalized story.

Guy should be suspended and dropped a pay grade or three. Acting like a complete idiot in a simple meeting means he will more than likely do the same in an emergency event.

Look at the bright side... if this is the quality of schmucks that will be coming for our guns, I think we'll do just fine.

My friend is a Philly cop who works the night shift. As much as he wants to, he is not allowed, per department policy, to have a light mounted to his sidearm. He says the reasoning is, and with seriousness, it's because "a bunch of idiots would probably use the lights on their pistols to direct traffic" and do other stupid things with them. Having to go to to court for work I have a lot of contact with Philly cops. I also have a lot of friends from high school who are Philly cops. His assumption does not surprise me at the least.

.....don't even get me started about my buddy's "shooting skills" with his duty issued Glock 21 with a 8 lbs trigger. Confused

A top aide to strict gun-grabbing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been granted a waiver for carrying a firearm at government offices in violation of state law.

Cuomo appointed Jerome Hauer to take over the state’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services in 2011, according to the Albany Times Union.

The Albany, N.Y.-based newspaper reported in early January that Hauer used his firearm’s laser sight as a pointer device during a meeting with a delegation of Swedish security professionals — with his loaded 9-mm Glock still attached.
