When CNN interviewed Susana Martinez, New Mexico's Republican candidate for Governor, we got a surprise. Our cameraman John Torigoe was trying to clip the microphone pack to the candidate's belt when she pulled away and said "Be careful, that's a gun back there." Martinez tells CNN she has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.Now I understand why Cope Reynolds of The Shooting Bench podcast and owner of Southwest Shooting Authority in Luna, NM is such a big fan of hers!
