MONTROSE, Colo. (AP) - Montrose city councilor Kathy Ellis says she made a mistake when she took a gun to an airport.
According to the Montrose Daily Press, Ellis was traveling with her husband to a convention in Las Vegas on Monday and forgot to take her gun out of her purse.
Ellis has a concealed carry permit.
Ellis was not arrested, but the Montrose County Sheriff's Office has referred the matter to the district attorney's office for possible prosecution.
