Man Tries to Bring Loaded Gun on a Flight Out of Buffalo
If you’re like me, you just read that headline and said, “Are you kidding me??” People really still try this?
It’s true. According to WIVB-TV, a man from Pennsylvania tried to take a flight from Buffalo to Pensacola with a loaded .38-caliber pistol in his carry-on bag.
He didn’t even put it in his checked luggage! Obviously the man was detained and questioned and didn’t make his flight.
This blows me away. I still refrain from packing any liquid in my bags when I fly because I’m afraid I’ll get in trouble for it, and this guy has a loaded handgun? Let me be clear here, too: It’s not that he carries a gun that makes him crazy. I believe in the Second Amendment. What makes him crazy is that he decided to try to carry it on a plane! This is why I don’t like to fly. It’s not the transportation that scares me. It’s the crazy people that might be sitting next to me on it!
