Sally Kern Stopped With Loaded Gun

Jim Burroway

July 23rd, 2008

Oklahoma state Rep. Sally Kern (R-OKC), who made headlines last March for saying that gays were a bigger threat than terrorism, was stopped by state Capital security from bringing a handgun into the building. This is the second time in two months she had a weapon at the Capital. Kern attributed both breaches to “forgetfulness.”

You know, it bothers me deeply that someone can somehow manage to “forget” they have a handgun on their person. It just flies in the face of everything I was taught about gun safety while growing up.

Bingo! Guess she’d forget she had it if she actually had to use it.

It’s more than a little scary that someone like Sally, who sees Gays as “terrorists” and has conspiracy theories running rampant in her mind, is actually carrying a firearm.

I read the title and expected a much better story. ;-)
