Gun Pointed at Republican Congressman in South Carolina Parking Lot

by Charles C. W. Cooke

Fox News reports that a 52-year-old woman pointed a gun at a Republican congressman in a South Carolina parking lot:

Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy had a gun pointed at him Sunday while picking up his daughter from church, police said. 

The suspect, reportedly identified as a 52-year-old woman, was arrested after the incident. . . .

Police later issued a statement saying the suspect walked up to Gowdy’s vehicle “displaying a handgun” while he was waiting in the church parking lot. She twice told him to “stop following me,” police said, though he explained he was just waiting to pick up a family member. According to police, Gowdy then put his car in reverse as the suspect “started running after him on foot across the parking lot.” 

Gowdy reported the incident to police, who then arrested the suspect.
