Trying to bring a .38 on the plane? Well, isn't that special. I hope he is not able to hold on to his job after being caught up in this crime.

What are the odds his act of petulance will cost him the right to own guns?
 
2013-11-22 05:31:56 PM  
...assuming it was an act of petulance and not just the accident he claimed it was.

And yet this goon will lecture everyone else on "responsible" gun ownership.

Forgetting a  too large bottle of shampoo in your carryon? Okay, I can see that. Small pocket knife? Sure, it happens. But if you can't remember where you left your gun, you have no business owning a gun. Ever.

When the gun was spotted by security, Darby reportedly told an an officer it was his, that he had a concealed pistol license and had forgotten it was in his bag.

If you don't always know the exact location of every gun you own, you probably shouldn't own guns.

Indeed. You have to hold on to it loosely when you're rocking into the night.

Sad, another true, brave conservative american prosecuted by libtards for doing nothing wrong.  If he had been Muslem, you dhimmicrats would be worshipping him.

What a sad, sad day for Jesus.

Yeah, wouldn't entire point of carrying a gun be nullified by the fact that you have no goddamn idea where it is?

Yeah. I'm a trusting fellow so I don't doubt for a moment that he simply forgot he had it. However, it's definitely proof that he shouldn't have it at all. It also doesn't excuse him from the felony charges. I'm all for responsible gun ownership, and this is part of that responsibility.

It's okay since he "regrets" the incident.  I somehow believe there was an overzealous staffer involved.

I always wonder how people have a bag that they "forget" that a gun is inside of, especially when going to the farking airport. I pat myself down before leaving the house, when parking the car, and probably 5 times before getting to security. As it is, I only carry my gun when travelling long distances on the freeway, so I wouldn't be bringing the gun to the airport anyway, but I actually pay attention to what's going in my carry on bag anyway, I don't see how a gun could "accidentally" end up there.

This.  Don't charge him if he agrees to forfeit his guns for X years and take hunter's safety AND concealed-carry courses again.  Dumbass mistake, and not one that deserves to go without punishment.

No victim. No crime.

It should be up to each individual airline to decide if they want to allow guns on their planes and not a government prohibition.

He's from San Angelo. I'm curious how he got the gun from San Angelo to Austin   I guess there are all kinds of scenarios, but the obvious is that he flew from west Texas to Austin and was flying back.   Unless he also has residence in Austin.  Whatever. Careless.

The ol I forgot I had my gun in the bag excuse. You know if you forget you have a farking gun...time to no longer let you have a gun. Dumbshiat!
 
2013-11-22 06:02:02 PM  
I'm a little torn on this. I have a CCL myself and when you wear it long enough it almost becomes another "accessory" in the sense that its always there and you don't think about it until you need to. I know accessory is a odd word to use here, but my going out to buy groceries process goes something like: keys, wallet, cell phone, gun, holster. I can see how someone who always has it on them may forget they do when they walk into a place that doesn't allow them. On the other hand, I am always thinking about where I am and where I am going with a handgun, its my responsibility to make sure I don't take it somewhere where its prohibited. Its boneheaded and stupid, but I can understand how something like this can happen.

Meh, let's get marijuana legalized nationally first.  Then, we can go for the right to depressurize airplanes anytime we feel like it.

All he wanted to do was fly away. It isn't like he was waving it around yelling "bring it on" or anything, just got busted by some trooper with an attitude.

The TSA regularly misses things like guns in bags (Google it), not surprised if he did fly with it in his bag before.

But we should never, ever actually prevent such negligent people from owning a gun until they shoot someone -that at least seems to be the attitude of the resident Fark gun nuts.

I don't know about guns, however my wife fairly routinely forgets that she keeps a swiss army knife in her knitting bag when she decides to use it as a carry on (even though she manages to remember to remove her scissors every time).  Damn thing has probably had more money spent on mailing it back to us than it cost to buy by an order of magnitude or so.

TSA missed a folding knife I had in one of my bags on three trips straight. Luckily I found it before I flew again later that week. This wasn't a pair of podunk airports either. One was pretty small, but the other one was ORD.

If airlines had to provide labels on whether or not they allow guns, that will cost them money and therefore jobs. Take your job killing government regulation elsewhere libby.

This . owning a gun is a responsibility, you cannot handle the responsibility you have no business owning one.
