Clueless tourist brings loaded gun to 9/11 Memorial

You'd think people would understand by now that guns are not allowed at many U.S. tourist sites.

Especially the World Trade Center.

But still, a tourist from Milwaukee was caught at Ground Zero on Sunday, attempting to bring a handgun into the 9/11 Memorial.

NYPD took a .38-caliber Kel-Tec semiautomatic, with two rounds in the magazine, from 41-year-old Ursula Jerry, and charged her with criminal possession of a handgun.

Jerry said she meant no harm; she was carrying the weapon for protection in the big city and has a permit for it.

The police informed her that out-of-state permits are not valid in New York City.

Jerry is not the only gun-toting tourist the NYPD has nabbed this summer.

In July, a Georgia man tried to check a loaded gun at the door while he went up to see the Empire State Building.
