I wouldn't be surprised if the Chik-Fil-A executive wasn't on his way to commit a hate crime with that gun. Sexist, racist, homophobic and Christian.

I was thinking "Eat Mor Led". It gets the bad spelling in there without getting too close to a pretty decent Steve McQueen movie.

Why does a Chick-Fil-A exec own a security checkpoint at the Atlanta airport?

Explodo: The "I forgot it was there" defense should be an automatic license revoke for 1 year on the first offense and permanently after that along with making it illegal for you to even own one. If you're not careful enough with a gun to even know where it is you don't deserve to have it.


I'm in FL. No license in the first place! Haha!

I was flying out of an airport in Tennessee once, when an 70ish year old man came up to airport security and told them he had a gun in his carry on and wanted to know if that was all right. The TSA agent said very politely and professionally "don't cross this line, don't show it to me and don't tell me any more about it. Take it back to the ticket counter and have them put it in your checked luggage". I love it when people use commen sense and don't over react.

The last time flew out of Nashville a young army corporal was with his unit traveling somewhere and had carried something through TSA that he definitely wasn't supposed to. I passed by his Lt a cop and a couple of TSA agents and guys in suits all looking distressed. As I walked past, I heard something to the effect of "how can we save this guy's career?" Later on I saw him past security, back with his guys.

Those are my two TSA not being jerks stories.

Go ahead. Try and take it. I dare ya.

mat catastrophe: Why does a Chick-Fil-A exec own a security checkpoint at the Atlanta airport?


Probably to discriminate the against LGBLT community, people of color, Muslims, and women.

SurfaceTension: I can see how one would forget that.

Flying in June this year. I had 3 bags with me. Was originally planning to check two and carry on a third. Changed my mind at the last minute and instead of checking the bag with my clothes and toiletries I decided to check another one and carry that one on. Except I forgot the big bottle of mouthwash was in it. Total blank. Got stopped, and the bottle thrown away. No other hassle.

So yeah, I can see if a person is in a hurry and doesn't think about it and suddenly it's "oh shiat".


Mouthwash is one thing. I fly every other week through Hartsfield and I smoke a lot of weed so I will check my coat and any bags thoroughly the night before my flight. If I carried a piece every where I'd do the same.

You can get arrested for a gun. You can get arrested for drugs. You will not get arrested for mouthwash. I can see forgetting the mouthwash because of that, but if you can't remember to check up on the two former things then you're not being thorough enough.

The gun should be a lot easier to notice than the drugs. This is likely just incompetence, but it's pretty damn incompetent.

Sid_6.7: B. The airport in TFA is the busiest in the world in terms of passenger traffic, and is located in Georgia, both certainly contributing to more guns being found on passengers compared to other airports.


I disagree; while more people fly through ATL, I doubt they have the heaviest check-point through-put. If you're just connecting through ATL you don't get searched. Well, normally.

The Slush: Responsible gun ownership: "Durr, I didn't know where my gun was"


Other people have pointed this out in the thread, but the sentiment bears repeating. Maybe I'd have such a cavalier attitude towards firearms if I owned them, but I doubt it.

Onkel Buck: Friend of mine went through security recently with live rounds in his bags. TSA never saw a thing


I made it through Love Field in Dallas with a pocketknife on my keychain, just plain forgot it on there. They didn't check or say a thing. That blade was bigger than most box-cutters.

On my way back from Lubbock at this small 8-terminal airport, the agent saw the knife on my keychain before it went through the scanner, asked if I wanted to keep it, and told me to run it to my bag before it went to the back. Of course I was one of like 3 people in the whole airport so that was cool.

Because all employees of a company are in lockstep with what their CEO thinks. OF COURSE.

Who "forgets" a firearm?
 
2012-12-05 01:49:57 PM
To those who keep referring to the executive as a male, just for reference:

It began Monday when agents said around 10:45 a.m. they discovered a .380 handgun in Sheryl Rexrode's carry-on as she went through security. The Chick-Fil-A executive was arrested.

First, let me say that I believe that everyone who would normally qualify for a concealed carry permit should be allowed to pack a gun on a plane. Second let me say that if you "forget" that you are carrying a gun, you should never be allowed to carry a gun.

I once accidentally went through airport security with a sawn-off ellipsis. TSA brought me to a full stop.

Probably the same people that don't act as if the firearm is always loaded and shoot their friend in the face.
 
2012-12-05 01:51:56 PM
the tag is for subby who doesn't know the difference between an "executive" and an "executive administrator"

but at least she got it greenlit with the hatred. Mods apparently couldn't get as far as the second sentence.

ginandbacon: Ya know? I think that "forgetting" about your gun is a pretty good sign that you are either lying to law enforcement or that you seriously shouldn't own a gun.


C) All of the above

The same people who forget that they have a baby in the back seat in the summer time.

Sid_6.7: colinspooky: Can't believe this doesn't happen every 20 minutes at one US airport or another.........

A. Please, for the love of Christ, an ellipsis only has three periods, and is not an appropriate way to end a sentence, especially one at the end of the entirety of what you have written/a paragraph (such as it is). You might as well end your sentence with "^^^%%". It makes about as much sense grammatically.

B. The airport in TFA is the busiest in the world in terms of passenger traffic, and is located in Georgia, both certainly contributing to more guns being found on passengers compared to other airports.


I knew someone from a previous internet life.. .. ..whose idea of an ellipsis.. .. ..was, as you can see.. .. ..two periods, then a space, then two periods, then a space, then two periods.. .. ..and he used this hillbilly ellipsis at least three or four times in every post. He seemed to stick them in wherever he would have naturally paused while speaking. I think.

Pointing out to him that this was asinine only encouraged him. Once you tell somebody like that not to do something that his fifth-grade English teacher also would have told him not to do, you've now given him a mission in life.

kumanoki: Who "forgets" a firearm?


The same person who insists we're all magically safer because he's allowed to carry a concealed weapon everywhere he goes, despite all the statistics proving the exact opposite.

I don't know what's the problem with libtards. More guns = more safe...duh!

He/she is not the CEO. He/she is an "executive administrator." Another term for this job is "administrative assistant." Yet another is "secretary."

Huge difference...

Sadly, 'THIS' got shot in the face by his friend who "forgot" his weapon was loaded, safety-off, in a bag.

From TFA:

Officers arrested three people, including an executive administrator with Atlanta-based Chick-Fil-A. It's why the agency is once again urging passengers to check their bags before coming to the airport.

It began Monday when agents said around 10:45 a.m. they discovered a .380 handgun in Sheryl Rexrode's carry-on as she went through security. The Chick-Fil-A executive was arrested.



The person in question was referenced as "an executive" and as "an executive administrator". Please resume arguing.

Also, she is a woman.
 
2012-12-05 02:02:10 PM

namatad:

Which begs the question, WHY is this an issue?
Why doesn't TSA respond with "You will have to check this bag sir or throw the gun away."
TADA, problem solved!!!


Because, headlines.
The TSA has a thankless job and it screws up at it with alarming regularity. They need to defend their funding like ever other government agency, even when it's quite apparent that they need massive reorganization.

These "wins" are all they have.
So what if it ruins someone's life over a simple mistake.

/a real terrorist probably isn't going to walk with a loaded handgun in a bag he knows they are going to search.
/that crap ended back when they installed metal detectors and x-ray machines.

People that forget they're carrying a gun should forever lose the right to carry a gun.
 
2012-12-05 02:05:26 PM

KarmicDisaster: ToxicMunkee: Okay, so tell me. What good is a gun in your bag if you FORGET it's in there? "I'm just trying to protect myself...with a gun I forgot I had!"

At the point where you have so many guns that you forget that you are carrying some of them around, you may have too many guns.


Nobody said he had too many guns. People don't have too many sets of car keys and seem to be
able to forget where they put them.

Not saying one should not be more careful with dangerous items....

I read that as chickens don't fly themselves and someone has to do it (for them). Then I read it correctly. Then I had the visual of someone "helping" a chicken fly by flinging it hammer-style while someone else takes the poor little bastard out.
