[OFF THE POST] A Pennsylvania woman who had been bringing her loaded handgun to her 5-year-old daughter's soccer games and practices has had her concealed-weapons permit revoked by the Lebanon County sheriff.

According to the Associated Press, Meleanie Hain is fighting the revocation.

The Lebanon Daily News reported that Hain wore her loaded Glock 26 on her hip when she attended her daughter's soccer practices and games at Optimist Park.

Openly carrying a weapon to a youth soccer match shows a lack of judgment, said Sheriff Michael DeLeo.

Other parents had noticed the Glock 26 in a holster on Hain's hip.
