Its common sense, when you are going to commit something of this sort in a public place, you have to act fast. The clown aimed the gun as if only to draw everyone's attention, but nothing further. He might have got a clean shot even two steps further back without coming within the senator's arm range.
The gun didn't go off, you can hear a faint "click" on the video. He went close because it was a gas pistol which doesn't do any damage unless you press it into victims skin.
