    Woman arrested after cops find loaded handgun in her purse

    A Florida woman was arrested after cops found she was carrying a handgun loaded with hollow point bullets in her purse during a traffic stop, Frenchtown police said.

    Cops stopped Donna Marie Gracey, 59, of Seminole, Florida, on Tuesday for having tinted windows and a view obstruction on Bridge Street in Frenchtown. While she was searching for her license, officers spotted a concealed weapons permit, according to a press release.

    An investigation revealed Gracey had the handgun in her purse, authorities said.

    Though Gracey had a permit to carry the gun in her home state, New Jersey's strict gun laws require weapons to be stored unloaded and locked in the trunk.

    While legal to possess hollow point ammunition, there are heavy restrictions in N.J. regarding transporting and using the bullets.



    it is also illegal to possess hollow nose or hollow point bullets unless you are engaged in one of the activities that are considered "exemptions." These include: hunting, fishing, and target shooting.

    Gov. Chris Christie has pardoned a number of out-of-state residentswho were caught with weapons, but is against a GOP-led bill that would allow gun owners with state-issued concealed-carry permits to carry in states that allow concealed weapons.

    Christie is against the change, noting it's a state's rights issue that the federal government should stay out of.

    Gracey was charged with possession of a loaded handgun and possession of hollow point bullets and summonses for tinted windows and view obstruction. She was released pending court.

    Article FAIL.
    Only for travelling through NJ. That should have been made clear.

    On a side note it never ceases to surprise me how many people think they can carry anywhere because they are licensed in another state. Can't tell you how many people I know (mostly women) that were certain they could carry in NYS.

    Cops on fishing expeditions.
    One of the local town cops stops out of state tinted windows routinely.
    It highlights why people assume what is legal in one state is legal in another. If the tint is too dark for NJ AFAIK they can pull you over. No different then having to obey various traffic laws that may be different then your home state.

    "While she was searching for her license, officers spotted a concealed weapons permit, according to a press release"
    Was this the probable cause to search her purse? Florida leads the country in concealed permits (1.5 million). Some North Florida counties approach 15% of the population having a permit.

    BTW Pennsylvania is #2 with about a million LTCFs. I guess don't keep your gun permit right next to your driver license.

    Also she was on Bridge street (the one that crosses the Delaware). Not that it matters but I doubt she was more than 100 yards in NJ. The cop was probably sitting at the end of a bridge pulling all of the out of stater he could.

    it will be interesting to see if she spends any time in jail with the new Governor.

    On Bridge street in Frenchtown? Not known as a major drug corridor, less than a half mile from PA too. A wrong turn across the bridge could go south quickly!

    Florida tags + driving in New Jersey = bad result.
    All that is needed for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing.
