"Pistol-Packing Grandma" pulls pistol at Louisiana candidates forum.

No, it's not what you think. See the article here. And it didn't help her in her bid for an endorsement.

The specter of crime, and the memory of her own close brush with it, turned state Senate candidate Polly Thomas of Metairie into a pistol-packing grandma who showed her hardware during a recent candidate forum.

While addressing members of Crimefighters Inc. on Oct. 5, Thomas pulled a Glock 19 semi-automatic pistol from her handbag to dramatize the point that she will be tough on crime if elected to represent the 9th District.

"I told them that it's a shame when a grandmother feels she has to be armed to feel safe," said Thomas, 60, who has a permit to carry a concealed weapon and assured the audience that the pistol she aimed at the ceiling wasn't loaded.

"These are people who are very attuned to and protective of people who've had crimes committed against them," said Thomas, who was robbed at gunpoint in her driveway a decade or so ago, but armed herself only after Hurricane Katrina.

Thomas said she told organizers before the forum that she would display the firearm, but it obviously surprised other attendees.
