Interesting Firearm Photos XXVI

A very unfortunate situation.....R. Budd Dwyer, a Pennsylvania politician who served as the state’s treasurer, after being convicted of 11 counts of conspiracy, mail fraud and perjury, he called for a news conference. Much to everyone’s shock, Dwyer pulled out a Smith & Wesson model 27 .357 revolver and committed suicide on air. The date was January 22, 1987, one day before his sentencing hearing.
Years later the people who testified against Dwyer admitted to lying about his involvement.
