AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — An 82-year-old Maine woman faces charges after she tried to carry a concealed handgun into a federal building in Augusta. Imelda Yorkus, of Whitefield, said she forgot she had the gun when she tried to go to the post office in the Edmund S. Muskie Federal building on Tuesday afternoon. Security officers in the building discovered the weapon when it set off a metal detector.

Police Sgt. Christopher Massey said Yorkus made no attempt to hide the gun and there’s no evidence she had any malicious intentions.

Nevertheless, Yorkus faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.

Yorkus told the Kennebec Journal she made a “stupid mistake.”

    See, even the 82 years old people are allowed to have guns in their pockets. Professional athletes in the US just can't seem to keep their hands off of guns. Look at this Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittendon incident – they store and then pull guns in the Washington Wizards locker room? Boys will be boys, after all, but that is out of hand. Everyone has a right to carry and bear arms but at some point you have to start holding the players accountable. Granted, neither will probably ever need payday loans again, but at some point teams need higher standards, and fire players that don't want to act like responsible citizens, and fans should start boycotting teams who won't do so.
