Just 15 minutes after President Obama concluded his speech on immigration, an armed woman was arrested outside the White House. CBS News reports that 23-year-old April Lenhart of Michigan was walking along the north fence on Pennsylvania Avenue when Secret Service agents spotted a gun in a holster around her waist. Officials say she had an unregistered 9 mm handgun and is being “uncooperative.” Yesterday, the Secret Service apprehended a man with a rifle outside the White House, so the agency is on a much-needed roll.
