Another LTCF revocation for OC alone

Looks like the Lebanon County Sheriff is about to learn the same lesson that the Franklin County Sheriff learned earlier this year.


Pistol-packing Pa. soccer mom loses gun permit

LEBANON, Pa. (AP) — Officials in Pennsylvania have revoked a woman's concealed-weapons permit because other parents complained that she was carrying her loaded handgun at her daughter's soccer games. Meleanie Hain said she's fighting the revocation by the Lebanon County sheriff.

Hain lost the permit and got a warning from local soccer officials after a game on Sept. 11.

Sheriff Michael DeLeo says openly carrying a weapon to a youth soccer match shows a lack of judgment.

Hain tells the Lebanon Daily News she's always openly carried a firearm without any problems in the past.

And her lawyer — Robert Magee — says that while Pennsylvania requires a permit for a concealed firearm, it doesn't require a license to carry one openly except in Philadelphia.

A more detailed story can be found on the Lebanon Daily News site, and there will be a follow-up article on the growth of OC in Pa. in the next couple of days.

In an effort to help the Sheriff cope with all of the attention, I've forwarded him a packet and cd containing all the media coverage from my own revocation - so he knows what to expect.

The ironic part is that she does need a LTCF to open carry. Hypothetically if she did not have one what would they have taken away?

Lebanon's Sheriff's department is in for a spanking.
