Oklahoma Governor completes firearms training course

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma City - Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin says she has completed a training course that will allow her to carry a handgun.

Fallin says 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."
