APPEARS IN Gun Laws

The Topeka Capital-Journal, Topeka, KS, 2/9/01

Friday, June 1, 2001

A woman was traveling alone on Interstate 70 in Kansas when a delivery truck driver got her attention by flashing his vehicle's lights and motioning toward the rear of her car. When she pulled over, the truck parked in front. Before getting out to check her vehicle's rear lights, though, the woman took the precaution of slipping her handgun into her purse. When she returned to her car, the truck driver used his foot to prevent her from closing the door and then twice asked for a kiss, according to police. The woman escaped the potentially violent advance by simply intoning, "I've got a gun" and driving off. Police confronted the driver as he made his next delivery.
