And the answer is surprisingly…no. No you can’t bring a gun into the 9/11 memorial, even if you politely tell a guard that you have a gun in your purse, forgot totally about it, and just want to check your firearm in the front desk, as was the case with 39-year-old Meredith Graves, a Tennessee native who didn’t know the rules about big city mice and 32-caliber firearms.
Although the 9/11 memorial guard’s response was pretty hilarious.
The guard told her that she was in luck because of “law enforcement day” — and led her to another area.
When she got to that section, she asked another cop, “We have this gun — can we check it in here? We [my husband and I] are not law-enforcement.”
That’s when she was arrested.
