Ryan Jerome, 28, was charged with criminal possession of his .45-caliber Ruger while visiting the famous New York landmark during a September vacation with his girlfriend. Jerome has a license to carry the weapon from his home state of Indiana, but New York's state gun laws do not recognize out-of-state permits.

With his case still pending, Jerome could face up to three and a half years in jail. – CNN
