Christine Jones, a former counsel for Internet domain registrar GoDaddy, put $2 million of her own money into her campaign to succeed Jan Brewer. Her big hobby: shooting.

After explaining that she is “cutting a lot of checks” to her campaign, Jones demonstrated her shooting prowess , described as her “own way of shooting.”

“I don’t change clothes, I don’t change glasses, um, I often shoot one-handed, I often shoot with my eyes closed,” she said.

Asked why, Jones replied, “Because chances are, if somebody attacks you, it’s going to be in the night.”

After shooting multiple times at target, Jones managed to hit the target once in shoulder, before admitting “That’s a problem at thirty yards.”

    So… she’s Daredevil?

    • tiredoftea August 4th, 2014 at 7:24 pm

      Stinky, smelly Daredevil, it seems.

    • Carla Akins August 4th, 2014 at 10:15 pm

      without the other heightened senses.

    Reminds me of the Don Henley song ‘Driving with your eyes closed’.

    I can see practicing in the dark but not with your eyes shut, that just seems dumb. Get out in the country and go coon hunting at night or something, learn to shoot when visibility is low, not with your eyes shut.

    If she can only put one round in the target at 30yds she needs to practice A LOT more. Eyes open or closed, just hope you’re not downrange of her if she decides to open fire.

      Az tea party Guber wannabe Christine Jones ‘story’ has the familiar Palin ringtone to it. Levi blew the whistle explaining ‘Sarah kept her only gun unopened in it’s box under her bed until I finally showed her how to shoot it.’ Amateurs!

      • AttilatheBlond August 4th, 2014 at 9:08 pm

        Yep, that’s what it sounds like. She’s goin’ all gunz blazin as a campaign tactic. If she closes her eyes, it’s because the muzzle flash spooks her.

        I could see practicing to shoot blind if one is a trained combat shooter who needs to rely on/hone all five senses in battle.

        She’s just a nervous poser.

    • Larry Schmitt August 4th, 2014 at 5:39 pm

      And that paper target’s not moving or shooting back at her. Where do they keep finding these people?

    • DaddyO_969 August 5th, 2014 at 6:06 pm

      30 yards is NOT appropriate hand gun distance. Here’s an attempt to act like she knows something and proves her total stupidity. We need more than background checks.

  5. edmeyer_able August 4th, 2014 at 5:10 pm

    She’s Batwoman.

    • R.J. Carter August 4th, 2014 at 5:18 pm

      Pfft. Batwoman’s way hotter and more lesbian than her. 😛

  6. Suzanne McFly August 4th, 2014 at 5:38 pm

    She’s really smart, like homeschooled smart.

    • Roctuna August 4th, 2014 at 7:23 pm

      I like to refer to her type as self-home-schooled. It’s sort of like exponential stupidity.

  7. Pilotshark August 4th, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    kind of sounds like the Black Hat (Airborne) telling the new hopefully paratrooper we are going to do a night jump during the day, Fledgling paratrooper asked how we going to do that the suns up during the day? Black Hat replies easy but you will have to close your eyes so you can simulate the night jump.
    then after the good laugh by all we tried to lower FT. Benning two inches, while in the forward leaning rest position.

  8. William August 4th, 2014 at 6:00 pm

    Yeah I can see that.

    Hopefully she will second-amendment herself before she harms others.

    • tiredoftea August 4th, 2014 at 7:25 pm

      Not gonna happen with her eyes closed!

  10. labman57 August 4th, 2014 at 6:10 pm

    Why do I get the feeling that this knucklehead is accustomed to being in the dark … metaphorically speaking?

  11. tiredoftea August 4th, 2014 at 7:26 pm

    “I don’t change clothes, I don’t change glasses, um, I often shoot one-handed, I often shoot with my eyes closed,” She seems nice.

  12. Shades August 4th, 2014 at 8:27 pm

    What could possibly go wrong?

  13. Carla Akins August 4th, 2014 at 10:18 pm

    I am not a shooter and have never received any training – but wouldn’t it be a good idea to become proficient the regular eye open way first? It’s just a guess, but I’m betting military snipers, law enforcement and Olympic shooters probably trained with their eyes open.

    • tiredoftea August 5th, 2014 at 12:42 am

      And, keep them open!

  14. Robert Keith Johnston August 5th, 2014 at 1:30 am

    It’s not a matter of being able to shoot with your eyes closed…it is the ability to think with your brain open that will determine how well you can do the job as governor.
    The lady has no range sense, as well as no common sense.
