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."

No Walt, you should have been there with your own laser pointer and lit him up. And then offered to lend it to him. :twisted:

This story reminded me of something I had disremembered.

One Halloween I was walking down through town to visit my Mom kitted out in my full sci-fi battle rattle.

There was an interview being taped (cassette) in the entryway of one of the stores. The interviewee stopped talking when he saw me, pointed and laughed, as did the interviewer.

I couldn't hear what was being said, having an actual helo pilot's helmet on, but I knew I was being dissed, so I turned to face my ridiculers and slapped the butt of my phony (but quite impressive looking) blaster.

Both men froze, and, my honor satisfied, I continued my stroll.

In retrospect, probably not good decision making on my part; I certainly wouldn't attempt a repeat performance.

The guy being interviewed was John Warner.

Reminds me a little of one particular scene in the original Battlestar Galactica....;):D

WaltGraham,

IF you are talking about US Senator John Warner of VA, I knew him well and & seriously DOUBT that John was "dissing" you. = Both he & "Miss Elizabeth" (as the VAARNG staff referred to her.) were always polite/nice/considerate to all of us MPs.

yours, sw

I was, and my tongue was firmly in my cheek as I keyed that.
