    Default 🤔 Man stopped with handgun at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport

    😲 C'mon man you know the thing.

    AVOCA ó Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport on Monday prevented a man from New Milford from bringing his handgun onto his flight.

    TSA said the .380 caliber gun, which was not loaded, was tucked into the manís laptop bag and was detected when the bag entered the checkpoint X-ray machine.

    When the gun was spotted, TSA officers notified the police. The man told officials that he did not realize that he had his gun with him because he thought he had lost the gun several months ago. He said that he forgot that he had placed it into his laptop bag.

    That's grade c armature shit. An unloaded Saturday night special is hardly a threat. I can completely see how it would happen if you dont' keep track of your guns.

    I couldn't find my P32 for like 4 months once.
    I've heard the wailing from people who think it should be impossible to lose a gun (how irresponsible!!! reeeeee!!!), but those little fucking mouse guns are sneaky like that.

    What pisses me off is that the TSA spouts how many weapons it keeps off of aircraft, keeping us safe. Pretending grandma*s embroidery scissors or that guy*s unloaded forgotten pistol were any threat to anyone doesn*t impress me.

    Yea, this stuff happens way to often, you hear about it several times a year at ABE. Is it really that hard to keep track of your guns and check all your baggage before you pack it to fly? This is probably someone who shouldn't be able to own a gun, obviously this person is not all that bright.
    IANAL

    I lost my S&W Model 1 for a couple of years and found it when I was looking for something else. Around that same time, I lost a bolt carrier, which I have still not found. And I realize that I am not alone, one of the guys at the airport lost the data cards for his Garmin avionics and found them under a pile next to his computer a couple of months later, after he replaced them. If you never lost anything or never found something that you even forgot that you had, you are way ahead of most people with your memory.

    So he thought he lost it ? And did not report it ? What an A Hole,Just Suppose a child found the gun and worse scenario could have happened ! I have no compassion for Idiots like him .You own firearms you should know where they are at all times and secured either in a safe or on your person !

    1) Don't lose guns. Period. Know what leaves the house and make sure it is accounted for when you get back to the house. Do this every single time.

    2) We are assuming this guy actually did "lose" the gun. He might just be tossing that out there for plausible deniability.

    I never lost a gun. But I damn sure wouldn't call the cops and tell them if I did, unless I knew for a fact it was stolen. I don't see how telling the cops can do anything good except cause trouble for the caller. It's not like they are going to come over my house and look in all my drawers for it, are they?

    OK, now this thread just got real.
    Fuck that "you MUST report a missing gun" bullshit.

    And yeah, I already mentioned the rest of your wailing and blabbering about "responsibility".
    Glad you're perfect. Must be nice.
