A woman received a state citation yesterday morning for bringing a loaded handgun to Nashville’s courthouse. The Tennessean reports that Sara Mitchell had the gun in her purse and was stopped at a security checkpoint at the Justice A.A. Birch Building. She admitted she did not have a permit to carry the gun, and told police she bought the gun for home protection and had forgotten it was in her purse.
