    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    Don't be to sure of that. I know of an FBI agent who was a fire arms instructor at Quantico teaching in the basic class. Upon returning to the class room after firing on the range he was instructiing the students on fire arms safety, when his weapon discharged hitting an agent in the front row, going thru him into an agent in the second row (a female). Both survived but I don't know if they fully recovered to go on duty after graduation or not. He however was not fired and went on to another duty station(s). I knew him before he went to the Feds and worked with hom for a while after he retired. He did his full tour (30 yrs?) dand retired at mandatory retirement (after 2 age waivers). SO, maybe some crap details foonr a while, then carry on as usual.

    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    If I was her boss, I might not pursue termination, but I would've held on to the pistol till she came looking for it.

    She'll probably end up as the Secret Service Director considering the Obama Administration's track record and whom she's leaving unsecured weapons laying available around.
