Gilberton, Pa., police chief's hearing halted when gun falls on floor


A hearing for a Pennsylvania police chief who made profanity-laced Internet videos about liberals and the Second Amendment was halted suddenly tonight after a handgun belonging to one of his supporters slid out of its holster and crashed onto the concrete floor.

The loaded semi-automatic handgun landed inches away from Gilberton Chief Mark Kessler and his attorney. It did not go off, but attorney Joseph Nahas said that he and other officials were concerned about the safety of everyone in the tiny, crowded meeting room at Borough Hall.

2. There you go. Another GOOD reason NOT to bring guns with you everywhere.

Although in this case it could have been an accidental improvement in gun safety. Still was I guess.

Not so funny when the thing is pointed right at you, is it Chief?
