OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin says she's completed a training course that will allow her to carry a handgun.
Fallin told reporters Wednesday she's waiting on the results of her background check, but that she's completed the required course that will allow her to carry a concealed weapon.
Although Fallin is assigned armed troopers for security, she says she may want to carry a handgun when she is no longer in office.
She said as a private citizen, the decision to carry a weapon is a "matter of personal safety."
Fallin says her husband owns revolvers and pistols and that she hasn't decided which handgun she prefers.
