When I first heard that anti-gay Oklahoma legislator Sally Kern was caught taking a gun int the state capitol, I made a joke out of it...
It's a joke, until someone ends up dead
I decided to go a more serious angle after Howie Klein reminded me of a much more serious angle:
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.
