I love to see a man exercising his second amendment rights.

A senator looking through the sight of an unloaded weapon entered into evidence during a Senate committee hearing into the activities of the C.I.A.

Real Freudian stuff, that.

The American Experience on PBS just showed the filmed footage of Goldwater looking through the sight.
He then passed it on to his fellow senators (most of whom were Democrats) who also examined the weapon.

It was evidence in the Senate's investigations into the alleged assassination activities of C.I.A. under JFK.

It had absolutely nothing to do with the exercise of Second Amendment rights except in the biased mind of the beholder.
