Oh relax, Submtter.He was probably just trying to guard himself and his employees against the rabid horde of same-sex couples coming through Atlanta that day. Perfectly understandable.

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!"

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.

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.

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

Probably on their way to execute gay people in Uganda.

Heh my dumbass friend brought his backpack through a checkpoint when he was heading back home from his dad's place in New York. What he didn't realize was his dad had used the backpack before giving it back to him and forgot his little single-shot .22 pistol in it. My buddy gets to the airport, puts his bag on the scanner, and next thing he knows he's got a military guy pointing a M4 at him while he's being handcuffed. They take him to the back, on one is believing that he didn't mean to have it, and wouldn't let him make any calls. After about 5 hours an FBI agent comes in, realizes that my friend is actually telling the truth, and has him call his dad. Dad comes, says it's his and he forgot it, my friend gets off, and is able to get another flight out.

He said the best part of it was the look on the TSA agent's face at the secuity checkpoint as he went through again (she was still on shift from when he was arrested).

//I forgot a box of ammo in my backpack going through once
///No arrest, but I'm on a TSA "watch list"
//Not a "No fly" list, but apparently they're watching me

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.

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 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".

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.

I suspect that far, far more verboten "things" end up going through security checkpoints than get caught.

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

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.

Then at noon, police arrested Derek Morgan after they said he tried to take a loaded .32 caliber handgun through a checkpoint

You would think that members of the BAU would be allowed to carry their guns on flights, or at least get a pass if he forgets to check it.

Chick-Fil-A's interpretation of the bible:

"Thou shall not kill", an explicit commandment, isn't to be taken seriously.

The parts of Leviticus about tattoos and blended fabrics aren't to be taken seriously.

The part of Leviticus that tells priests of one, long gone temple in Jerusalem that homosexuality is not part of that, long gone priesthood, is cause to change United States law to forbid a third of Americans from having the same rights as the other two-thirds.

Geniuses, these executives. It's a miracle they ever remember that the chicken goes inside the bread in a chicken sandwich.

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.
