Uh, I don't think it's a good idea for a blind person to exercise his Second Amendment rights.

/Did I just piss off the left and the right in the same sentence?

it's like a double negative, they cancel each other out

the two parties can't agree on anything unless re-election is at stake

That's absurd on its face.

He was carrying guns and ammo on a plane without having the slightest clue about the regulations. I feel so bad for the guy.

He also had knives in his check-in bag; leathermans, a Swiss Army Knife and a sheath knife.


Leathermans aren't knives and a Swiss Army Knife, even the big locking ones, aren't weapons.

Why am I not shocked this responsible gun owner didnt do bit of inquery about travling with a gun.

Bullets AND knives?

In carry on?

What a simple mistake to make, right? I mean those laws just changed about a week ago.

I find it concerning that they didn't know about the arsenal in his checked baggage until he told them. Would they also have missed a suitcase nuke?

I own a Leatherman, and it has a quite effective fold-out knife blade. It's a serious knife, believe me.

No, he wasn't.  The bullets were in his carry-on.  The guns and knives were in his checked luggage.  He still didn't do his due diligence about flying with a gun, but he wasn't trying to carry one on the plane with him.

>> he said they were for his gun, which was packed in his check-in bag.
>>He also had knives in his check-in bag; leathermans, a Swiss Army Knife and a sheath knife.

With the proper Jedi training, he'll do just fine.

I also own a Leatherman, and several analogues. That's why I DON'T believe you. They're not very good for cutting.

Packed and locked properly, it's legal to have firearms in checked luggage.

They have firearm registration in NM?

FTFA:  Whitehead said though he is blind, he does know how to use a gun, can shoot a target and keeps them for protection at home.

Go on, Fark gun fetishists.  Tell me why this is an acceptable way for this man to keep his home and neighborhood safe.

Oh, nevermind.  This apparently happened in New Jersey, on his way back to New Mexico.

Leathermans were banned even for pilots right after 9-11. You know, to keep pilots from getting in the cockpit and hijacking themselves.

So were toenail clippers.

That doesn't mean toenail clippers are knives.

From TFA - "He banged me into a chair, a desk, a wall, a doorway ..."
Aha! If your so blind how do you know what they were running you into?
 
2013-07-02 06:20:12 PM
Oh for heavens sake, even if he opens fire he's not gonna hit anyone...

Story is 2 months old. Move along, nothing to see here.

"Hey Akmed! We get the blind recruit to carry on the plane. Nobody will see that coming!!"

Nope nothing to see at all.

completely blind, but i can "see" hit targets
 
2013-07-02 07:19:47 PM
I guess in the USA it's perfectly normal for a blind man to have a handgun...

You have to ask that question about TSA?

I'm more concerned about this one:

Whitehead said though he is blind, he does know how to use a gun, can shoot a target and keeps them for protection at home.

I need to know: How does a blind man shoot a target? Even supposing (which I do) that he has SOME sight, I know how unsighted I am when I take my glasses off (I'd be legally blind), so what does this guy do? Shoot at an auditory target? And how's that going to help him when six people are screaming, guns are firing and the general hurly-burly that goes on in a home invasion or robbery? Or does he just shoot in the general direction of what someone tells him is the target and hope it's not something that's black&white with red markings?

No, I know: "I OWN GUNZ CUZ AH'M AN 'MURKIN AN ITZ MAH RITE DAMMIT."
