Lebanon County PA Sheriff Michael DeLeo revoked Meleanie Hain's concealed carry permit because she was open carrying while watching a soccer game. I'm no expert on PA law, but it looks to me like it is perfectly legal to open carry in PA with or without a permit unless you happen to be in the city of brotherly love, which she wasn't. I guess that Sheriff DeLeo just doesn't like soccer moms to be armed for the defense of themselves or their children so he abused his authority in an illegal fashion. I hope she sues & wins enough to buy herself a case of her favorite lipstick & a couple of extra firearms of her own choosing paid for courtesy of the citizens who elected DeLeo. Perhaps in the next election they'll choose more wisely.
You may even want to call or e-mail his office to let him know exactly what you think of his decision before the next election. His office can be reached at 717-228-4410.

Update 6: Unfortunate news: Meleanie's husband killed her in a sneak murder/suicide attack that caught her by surprise while she was using her computer. Anti Gun folks are using this attack by her husband as an excuse to say everyone should be denied the freedom to bear arms in their own defense. I say hogwash to that ridiculous conclusion.
