Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert will soon have a permit to carry a gun. Stothert tells Newsradio 1110 KFAB that she and her husband took the class together.  

She says it's not an issue about being afraid but showing that she's not afraid to protect herself.  

Stothert shot trap and skeet in high school and owns her own gun. She says she will not carry a gun at City Hall.

Mayor Stothert spends a few minutes with Newsradio 1110 KFAB and describes the process of getting a gun permit, and how important it is to take the gun classes.
