LEBANON, Pa. (AP) - October 14, 2008
Meleanie Hain is scheduled to appear Tuesday afternoon in
Lebanon County Court. She's appealing the county sheriff's
revocation of her permit after other parents complained last month
that she was carrying her loaded handgun in a holster at her
daughter's soccer game.
Hain's lawyer says state law allows gun owners to carry their
weapons openly without a license everywhere but Philadelphia.
Greg Rotz of Chambersburg says dozens of gun-rights supporters
are expected to attend the hearing.
Rotz says he faced similar charges after he wore a sidearm to
his voting precinct on Election Day last November. His case was
thrown out in January.
