Soccer Mom Loses CCW Permit

Pennsylvania resident Meleanie Hain is fighting to get her concealed-carry permit back.

This from the Lebanon Daily News:

On Sept. 11, Hain created a stir among other parents when she wore her weapon — a loaded Glock 26, about the size of an adult hand — in a holster to her 5-year-old daughter’s soccer game at Optimist Park in Lebanon, also known as Southwest Park.

Although she did not break a law by carrying the weapon openly, she is now facing the loss of her concealed-weapons permit. But she is not giving up without a fight.

“I’m just a soccer mom who has always openly carried (a firearm), and I’ve never had a problem before,” she said. “I don’t understand why this is happening to me.”

Dustin has an in-depth round-up.

Thats right you did not do anythig wrong, the people involved in taken your permit away is doing the wrong thing by taken your rights away. I hope there are some people out there that can help you with this


why is it that if we do the right thing, and somebody else freaks out, we end up being the bad guy (in this case, girl)? Hain was entirely legal in what she did. and becasuse a frightened nellie caused a problem, Hain gets stripped of her rights. HELLO, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE!!! the N.R.A. lawyers need to get involved in every one of these cases. i for one, would gladly donate a significant amount of a settlement to the N.R.A. legal fund if they got involved to help stop this type of harrasment!
