    An officer in the neo-Confederate group League of the South has been convicted of illegally carrying a gun during a demonstration over the removal of a Confederate monument in North Carolina.

    After being found guilty Friday, Jessica Lynne Reavis, a 40-year-old from Danville, Virginia, complained about losing her Glock .40 caliber handgun, dozens of rounds of ammunition and her pepper-spray gun.

    Reavis, who works as a long-haul truck driver, said the misdemeanor conviction in district court in Chatham County, North Carolina, could mean the security clearance she needs for work will be revoked.

    “If I am found guilty and lose my security clearance … everything I worked for for my entire life will be lost,” Reavis told the court.

    Since when do you need a security clearance go drive a semi?

    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron."

    - Dwight D. Eisenhower
