Ariz. GOPer Tells Reporter At Gun Range: ‘I Often Shoot With My Eyes Closed’

July 30, 2014 5:35 p.m.

A Republican candidate for governor of Arizona said during an interview this week that she has an unconventional way of practicing her technique at the gun range: She shoots with her eyes closed.

Christine Jones, the former chief legal officer of GoDaddy, revealed her unusual tactics during an interview with Phoenix television station KSAZ, which took place at a local gun range.

“I don’t change clothes. I don’t change glasses,” Jones told the Fox affiliate. “I often shoot one-handed. I often shoot with my eyes closed.”

The reporter interviewing her appeared to be surprised about the last part and asked her about it.

“Because chances are if somebody attacks you it’s gonna be in the night,” Jones said.

Jones described herself as a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, telling the reporter: “The Second Amendment gave us the First. It gave you your job.”

Jones is running against several other Republicans in an open race to succeed Gov. Jan Brewer (R).
