Understand the Law

I feel bad for this woman from Tennnesse who was arrested in Chicago for carrrying a gun with a TN license, being apparently unaware that Chicago’s laws were any different. I think the Chicago DA did the right thing in charging her with three misdemeanor counts rather than a felony count; this isn’t someone to throw the book at.

Still, I have to wonder, even if you were under the delusion that your Tennessee permit were valid in Chicago, why would you put your gun toting purse on an x-ray belt? I wouldn’t even do that back home in Pennsylvania, even if it was a place I had a legal right to be armed. Oh yeah, and if I, um, carried my gun in a purse.
