Gun-carrying persons beware: A license to carry in one state does not mean you have a license in carry in another state! Below is an excerpt from the Reuters article:

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Meredith Graves, 39, a tourist from Tennessee was arrested after she brought a loaded handgun to the National September 11 Memorial in her handbag. It appears that Graves alerted security officers of her gun when she tried to check it for safekeeping. If convicted, she could face a possible 3.5 to 15 years in prison.
