Sally Kern (R-OK) is the NRA

NRA Convention Bus

Sally Kern is a State Representative in OK.  She also proudly proclaims her membership in the NRA.
That is, when she's not explaining how blacks and women aren't hard workers.
One would think Oklahoma state representative Sally Kern had learned to think before she spoke. In 2008, she left everyone appalled by her remark that gay people are a greater threat to the U.S. than terrorists.
But the Republican lawmaker has once again put her foot in her mouth, and this time, the constituents may not be so forgiving.
CBS News reports that at a debate on the affirmative action bill last Wednesday, Kern declared that women don’t work as hard because they “tend to think a little bit more about their families.” She also questioned whether blacks have high numbers in prison because “they didn’t want to work hard in school.”
Ever notice how most of your fervent NRA politicos tend to have difficulties with women and people of color?  Coincidence?
