Guns in the House from In These Times (September 16, 2002):
"The nation almost lost a national treasure recently when a pistol discharged in the hands of Rep. Bob Barr. The Georgia statesman was handed the 1908 Colt .38-caliber pistol by lobbyist Bruce Widener. Barr escaped injury and managed not to kill anyone attending the reception, though he did shatter a glass door. 'We were handling it safely.' Widener explained, 'except that it was loaded.' Barr, an NRA board member, commented that the incident 'underscores the importance of proven gun safety measures." - Dave Mulcahey
