Philadelphia resident Shaneen Allen had her carry permit and gun with her as she was running around planning her one-year-old's birthday party. Those errands took her across state lines into New Jersey — there, she was pulled over for a minor traffic violation. Following her training, the single mother of two told the officer she had a permit and a gun. That honest admission led to her spending 46 days in jail and now facing a possible three-year prison term.
Licensed gun owner Shaneen Allen made an honest mistake and is paying a stiff price.
