Gun OK'd for mom at soccer games

[OFF THE POST] Meleanie Hain, who lost her concealed weapons permit after taking a Glock 26 to her 5-year-old daughter's soccer games, has got the permit back and assured a Pennsylvania judge, "I'm certainly not looking to shoot anyone over a goal."

Lebanon County Sheriff Michael DeLeo had revoked the license when other parents complained that she carried the pistol in her hip holster to games and practices at Optimist Park.

According to AP, County Judge Robert Eby questioned her judgment - saying she "scared the devil" out of others at the soccer field - but that the law required him to return Hain's permit.

"Fear doesn't belong at a kid's soccer game from any source," Eby said.

Hain said she plans to pack heat to youth soccer games in the future.
