  • 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.
