MONTROSE — Montrose city councilor Kathy Ellis says she made a mistake when she took a gun to an airport.

According to the Montrose Daily Press (http://tinyurl.com/oknsaxr ), 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.
