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.

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!"

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 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.

I have never forgotten where any of my firearms were. Maybe his mommy needs to take some of his toys away until he knows how to play nicely with them.

And it's called a "full stop" not period. That's what ladies get.


No, it's definitely called a period. Surprisingly, words can have more than one meaning.

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.

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.

Christian Chic-Fil-A execs with caught guns at the airport?

Probably on their way to execute gay people in Uganda.

You are saying being a TSA agent is as bad as being a Nazi in WWII.

You are a crazy person.

dennysgod: They deserves to spend a few nights in jail for being so farking stupid. From what I've found you haven't been able to bring a gun on a plane (on your person or in your carry-on) since the 1970's and it's been 11 years since it's been a criminal act to try.


We could also tell them to comply with the FOPA and check the weapon as carry on, thus saving millions of dollars wasted on prosecuting and incarcerating non-terrorists.

/never mind, it seems we have money to burn.
/just put everyone who violates a TSA rule on the no fly list.

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.

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.

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.

had98c: Wow. A thread where there's a chance to bash TSA, Chik-Fil-A, the city of Atlanta, or greedy corporate executives, we instead argue over ellipsis.


Bonus points, ellipsis has something to do with airport security too. . .

Guns seems like one of those things that are important enough that you should know where yours is at all times. Even if you think you know where it is, you should occasionally check just to make sure it's still there, too.

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!!!

But no, instead they OVER REACT with deadly force.
