A Montrose area woman caused a commotion at Grand Junction airport last Thursday when the TSA discovered a loaded gun in her purse.  The woman explained it was an oversight as she lives in a rural area and uses the firearm for protection against bears. Local and Federal law enforcement decided not to press charges and the lady was able to board the plane. A similar situation occurred last year when a Montrose City official inadvertently entered security with a packed purse.
