Lott: Should New York tourists have their lives destroyed because of concealed carry
Just a few days before Christmas, Meredith Graves made a mistake that could end her medical career and send her to prison for at least 3 years. The 39 year old fourth year medical student was carrying a permitted concealed handgun when she saw the sign at the 9/11 Memorial saying "No guns allowed." She did the responsible thing and asked a security guard where she could check her weapon. Unfortunately, while her Tennessee concealed carry license is recognized in 40 states, New York isn't one of them. Meredith was arrested.
