Anti-gay Okla. lawmaker caught with gun at Capitol
"Homosexuality is a bigger threat to the U.S. than terrorism"...That what Sally Kern said in her controversy audio clip which was posted on You Tube. Not long after that she received death threatens, but that was not a reason why she always carries gun in her purse.
A state lawmaker who gained national notoriety with an anti-homosexual rant was stopped from entering the state Capitol Wednesday when she was found to have a loaded handgun in her purse, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.
Patrol spokeswoman Chris West said Republican Rep. Sally Kern was not charged because there did not appear to be any "malicious intent" behind her actions.
West said officers are allowed to "use their brains" when determining if an arrest should be made in such instances.
