OMG! Oklahoma Governor Fallin Carries A Gun! OMG!

“Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) wants to be able to carry a gun in her purse,” huffingtonpost.com reports. As Ellen Foley famously sang to Michael Lee Aday, STOP RIGHT THERE! Purse carry is a terrible idea for anyone considering armed self-defense. You can lose your gun and, slightly more importantly, your life. Have you ever watched a woman try to extract a bit of lippy from her purse from inside her handbag? Now try that with a bad guy coming at you with a pig sticker, baseball bat or tire iron. Or, for that matter, a gun. “Fallin, who owns handguns, has applied for a concealed carry permit so that she does not have to leave her gun behind at the governor’s mansion.” Wait. Won’t her shotgun and AR get jealous? You never take us anywhere. “Fallin, who has an armed security detail, explained that she wanted to carry the gun with her for safety.” Because when seconds count, half-seconds count too. Just sayin’ . . .
