Woman Brings Gun to 9/11 Memorial

A reminder not to carry your gun across state lines: a woman visiting New York City from Tennessee was arrested Dec. 22 for bringing a gun to the 9/11 Memorial and asking police if she could check it. Meredith Graves, a 39-year-old medical student with a gun license in Tennessee, was carrying a .32-caliber pistol in her purse, which she didn’t think was a problem until she saw a “No guns allowed” sign. After asking police to check the weapon, she was arrested. She’s due in court on March 19 and is facing a charge of felony gun possession, which carries a minimum sentence of three and a half years.
