New York City gun-packing tourist gets no jail time

A Tennessee woman arrested for bringing her gun along on a visit to New York City has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge.

Meredith Graves was spared jail time under the plea deal.

Graves, a registered nurse from Knoxville, Tenn., pleaded guilty Monday to criminal possession of a weapon.

She was arrested Dec. 22 after she tried to check her pistol with security officials on a visit to the 9/11 memorial at the World Trade Center.

New York's strict gun laws make it illegal for most out-of-state visitors to carry a concealed weapon, unless the firearm is also licensed in New York.

Graves' lawyer said bringing the gun to New York was "inadvertent." He said what she did is not a crime in Tennessee.
