Inadvertent? 😂 Yeah, right you accidentally brought a gun with you?
The only way I believe that is if you constantly travel with a gun that's the only way you forget which means if this person is telling the truth they always travel with the gun and they should face extreme Justice

From the sub-headline:
"The man did not possess a valid concealed carry permit and inadvertently left the firearm in his bag."
Wow, the news is defending the guy.

Either guns are okay to own or they're not okay to own I don't buy into this stupidity of some people can have guns and some people can't have guns all the active shooters prove how stupid that theory is almost every single act of shooter had a legal right to purchase the guns they used to kill innocent people so seriously fark off with that stupidity already we have concrete evidence that restricting people's guns doesn't stop active shooters

He was a felon not permitted to own a firearm which earns him some automatic sympathy from the press.

Wow.

That story just kept getting worse.

Accidentally left your handgun in your bag? - That sucks, and it will suck, but it can be an honest mistake.

Didn't have a concealed carry? - That is going to make the sucking significantly worse, AND you're an idiot.

Actually a felon and can't own a gun too? - Jesus christ man, we're talking spaghettification levels of suck. GL HF.

In is case "gun laws" are going to send a felon, who apparently routinely carries an illegal loaded fire arm, back to prison for a while.  What we have here is an example of gun laws working.

Of course gun laws can't stop mass shootings.  DUI laws haven't stopped drunk driving, so I guess we should eliminate all traffic laws entirely.

See, people are doubt the inadvertence claim, but you don't know these people.

I do.

Once witnessed this at a bag search for people going into a weekend lockup at the National Guard Armory for DUI charges.

Officer:Pulls bag of marijuana out of prisoner's bag.

Prisoner:"I've been wondering where that went!"

Congrats, genius, instead of a weekend in the armory, you get to go to actual county jail and catch a possession charge.

I don't necessarily interpret the use of "inadvertently" as defending the guy.  It just means it was unintentional and that he did not plan to use the weapon to hijack the plane.  This is an important detail to include in the story.

I don't think the word was used in the context of "honest mistake", but more as "really boneheaded mistake".

This one doesn't seem like whitewashing in the same way that they always say someone "lost control of the vehicle".

I once forgot I had a folding knife (4 inch blade?) In one of the pockets in my backpack.
TSA never caught it.

This.  Range bags only go to the range.  If I am carrying, which is pretty damn rare, it is on my person and not in a bag that can be walked away with.  Don't carry places you aren't allowed(airports, bars, places that ask you not to carry).
If I can afford a firearm, I can afford another bag.

active shooters prove how stupid that theory is.
almost every single active shooter had a legal right to purchase.
so seriously fark off with that stupidity .
we have concrete evidence that restricting people's guns doesn't stop active shooters.

waxbeans: Yeah, right you accidentally brought a gun with you?


I've said it more than once: This happens all the time and generally no one cares.

At my airport the county sheriff deputy runs your name and if you have nothing in your background you just take the gun out to your car and leave it there.

In this case, the guy is a felon so he's going away for a while.

Look, we need to stop forcing our concepts of "even" and "odd" on our numbers.  Maybe a number is actually odd even though it's divisible by two.  Anyway, it should be clear to anyone that 13,910 is non-binary.

I think we can all agree that it's a fine number, in any case.

Remember at Reno Airport hearing a guy arguing with Security and his wife, that he could take his gun on a plane. Had to leave before it was over.
 
2021-06-07 11:55:36 AM  
If you are stupid enough to bring a gun accidentally, it probably happens a lot. Doesn't say much for the TSA. I wonder how many times it took for them to find it. I'll put the O/U on 99.5

Guns are actually very easy to find. Probably a 99.9% chance that they are all found.

Yes, a number of guns greater than zero goes through security on the average day. Maybe 100 or more a year, total, nationwide, so the average might be less than one a day anywhere in the USA. Hard to give you an estimate for something we literally cannot count, but it's the best I can do.

Around here, they'd just give you the $100 ticket for possession. That was before decriminalization, so it was just a fine. Now it's legal so there is nothing to do.

Alternative to even doing the fine is the officer shakes the bag out into the wind and says get out of here.

I'm not sure I follow your train of thought.
"Lost control of the vehicle" is (usually) apparent by the fact that someone missed the road and drove into a wall/boulder/of a bridge, etc.

I've seen more than my share of gun owners carrying guns where they shouldn't be, or concealing them while knowing the law onpurpose.
Even claiming that he had no ill intention is defending the guy (righteously so or not) and should be left to the authorities and not the news outlets, unless they were conveying that from the legal authorities.
So the news site claiming that he didn't mean to carry that gun onto that plane is a stretch for me, and worse, many people would not be given that benefit of the doubt.
 
2021-06-07 5:16:47 PM  
My problem with "lost control of the vehicle" is that it downplays whatever really happened.  The driver didn't "lose control", they drove drunk, texted while driving, or drove recklessly, etc.

I guess your right that "inadvertently left a gun in his bag" also downplays what happened, which was that some idiot failed to handle a firearm responsibly, and this should never be excused.

only check the ones with NRA stickers, gun company stickers, or obnoxious stickers like 'fark BIDEN" I stand for the flag and kneel for the fallen"  ect,

FIrst, you increase your chances, and even if they dont have a gun in the vehicle, they deserve to have a busted window.
