Officials in Pennsylvania have revoked a woman's concealed-weapons permit because other parents complained that she was carrying her loaded handgun at her daughter's soccer games.

Meleanie Hain said she's fighting the revocation by the Lebanon County sheriff.

Hain lost the permit and got a warning from local soccer officials after a game on Sept. 11.

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

Hain told the Lebanon Daily News she has always openly carried a firearm without any problems in the past.

And her lawyer, Robert Magee, said that while Pennsylvania requires a permit for a concealed firearm, it doesn't require a license to carry one openly except in Philadelphia.
