Tennesse Medical Student Caught With Gun At 9/11 Memorial Escapes Jail Time
New York has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. It's a fact some gun owners traveling to the state sometimes miss with incarcerating results. For one Tennessee medical student at least, jail has been avoided.
Meredith Graves, 39 and a registered gun owner in Tennessee was visiting New York with her husband. They decided to visit the 9/11 Memorial. When she noticed a sign that said 'no guns allowed' she tried to check her handgun.
There is no such place to check a gun. She was promptly arrested.
Her attorney negotiated a plea deal where she plead guilty to a misdemeanor and will only have probation. This will allow her to still practice medicine in the field she chooses once she completes medical school.
