Sally Kern (R-OK)  Stopped By Police Officer Attempting To Smuggle A Semiautomatic Into Oklahoma Capitol


Dan White & Sally Kern, two dangerous homophobic psychopaths

You may remember the tawdry story of Oklahoma's homophobic maniac Sally Kern. The demented state legislator is back in the news today, having been caught trying to smuggle a gun into the state capitol again. She wasn't arrested yesterday when she was found to be carrying a .380 caliber semiautomatic handgun into the capitol. When my pal Mike Rogers told me about the incident I panicked. I immediately thought of a friend of mine, Andrew Rice, a state senator working in the same building. It was a visceral reaction to the hate-obsessed sociopath Kern has publicly shown herself to be.

My panic was based on another local legislator, Dan White, sneaking a gun into City Hall in November, 1978 and murdering a friend of mine, San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, and Mayor George Moscone, the father of another friend. It was a traumatic day for the entire city of San Francisco but especially for the gay community, Harvey having been the first openly gay man elected to any high profile office in America. He was beloved by the entire city but especially by the thousands of gay men and women who he inspired and made feel like they were an accepted part of society. Harvey used to read me letters in the back of his camera shop, letters from young men and women around the country-- from places like Kansas and Alabama and... Oklahoma, letters talking about despair and rejection but about how the national attention Harvey got was bringing them hope and a will to actually go on living. I still can't help but cry when I think about it.

Dan White, like Kern, is a hate-filled and bigoted right-winger. And like Kern he snuck a gun into City Hall. Unlike Kern, he wasn't stopped. He got in with his gun, went to Harvey's office and shot him dead and then went to mayor Moscone's office and shot him too. He later got off on the "Twinkie defense," claiming he had eaten too much sugar and wasn't in control of himself when he murdered the two. After a short time in prison he was released... and quickly found dead, an apparent "suicide."
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.

Let's hope they have brains to use.

I just checked and an earlier petition to remove Sally Kern from the Okie legislature is closed with almost 3000 signatures.

This would imply that Sally Kern has a permit to carry like whackjob Michele Bachmann in MN06.
Kerns is married to a Pastor and Bachmann thinks she is one.

Why do they need to be packing? Can't God protect them from the Unclean? Perhaps not, I believe Bachmann wears gloves on the accidental occasions she meets constituents.

Would either of these two pass a psychological test to be a gun owner? (right, if there WAS such a test).

I believe Virginia passed a law saying that former mental patients can't buy a gun(or something similiar) after the VA Tech tragedy. Right after a tragedy is the only time the NRA ever shuts up.

You really nailed it with this post. I also thought about Dan White when I first read this story on AP. I suppose old Sally thinks that by packing heat she's protecting herself from gays who are still (and rightly) incensed over her ealier statements. But she's just making herself look like a bigger fool than she already is. What is it with right-wing Christians and guns? Too creepy.

I wonder when they are going to remove this lunatic woman from office before her remarks start spreading violence and hate crimes? She sounds like a mental patient from an insane asylum. Only other lunatics would vote some one like this in office. Has Oklahoma no morals? Her hate speech reminds me so much like Hitler when he denounced the Jews which led to the death of millions of Jews.
