After the event, the reporter said: "In fairness, it may have been a joke. But is unclear and gun in camera worry seems....odd"
Does the headline have you confused? Well, don't expect to be any less so after reading further, because this is pretty zany.

GABRIEL SOUNDS A LOT LIKE THIS: Michele Bachmann suggests Islam is America's enemy [VIDEO]

According to the New Ulm Journal's Josh Moniz, nationally renowned Islamophobe Brigitte Gabriel barred reporters from filming her Minnesota Tea Party-sponsored speech last night in Mankato because she was worried about being shot by a gun hidden in a video camera. Seriously.

Here's a selection of Moniz's tweets from last night: That's pretty wild, but so were some of the allegations made last night by Gabriel, a native of Lebanon who calls "Islamofacism" a "cancer" that "is coming out of one source: the Koran": Also scary: :::: UPDATE ::::

Today, Moniz added: -- h/t -- Bluestem Prairie --

Like all these paranoid self-serving liars, somewhere deep down she knows she's lying and doesn't want to leave a trail.  Her idiotic fans would believe absolutely anything she says, and she can change her story all she wants for them.  But a factual record is like kryptonite to these lying charlatans.  Moniz is lucky he didn't get beaten up.

The funny thing is that you could have been standing there with a hand cannon strapped to your hip and been well within your rights.

She probably just doesn't want millions of Americans laughing at her stupidity on YouTube.

Faisil did it in True Lies. Maybe she's a Schwarzenegger movie fan!

Clearly, she's not a shining example of rational discourse on the subject of radical islam. However, it would be equally foolish of us to dismiss all critique of that faith as the catch-all "islamophobia". No idea is above criticism, no faith so sacred as to avoid discourse on it's core principles.

A Flip camera can hide a handgun? Who knew?

I believe you mean "renowned".

In speech we often drop -ed sounds after n, t, or d, but that doesn't mean you should do it in print.

@digitalprotocol Absolutely is a story. She's a public figure, with an apparent following, afraid of being shot from a gun hidden in a camera. Yeah, she's credible.

@John Wolfsberger  - First thing I though of as well, except the True Lies camera wasn't a Flip camera.
