I did not want to affect the comment flow, but I wanted to let you know that I did not out myself. The AP called me knowing that I, and one other legislator by name, was carrying in the Capitol. By taking the interview, I hoped that I could get, at least, part of my side into the story and try to keep other legislators from being named . . .
I stressed in every interview that the key is “concealed”, and that I was less than happy being named. I am not ashamed to carry. I am not scared in the Capitol. I am not shouting from the mountain top that I am carrying, either.
