Pilot arrested for having a gun in carry on

And being in New York. What’s amusing to me is the reaction of the TSA:

This incident highlights the importance of what TSA and its dedicated security officers do each and every day in protecting the flying public, TSA Upstate New York Federal Security Director Bart Johnson said I am grateful to the support that the Albany County Sheriffs Office provides to TSA on a daily basis.

That’s some funny stuff right there. You’d think he stopped Johnny Jihad from committing a terrorist atrocity from reading that. Instead, they just had some guy arrested because he forgot he had a gun in his bag.

    They trust the pilot with a 350,000# airplane full of fuel and people but not a 20 oz pistol??

    “Instead, they just had some guy arrested because he forgot he had a gun in his bag.”

    Much worse than that, they rendered one pilot (and by extension all his crew and passengers) defenseless against Johnnie Jihad. That’s “public service” in the Progressive vernacular.

    18 USC 242 applies. They’re federal criminals. We’re being “governed” by criminals, bent on aquiring more power over us. That’s the one and only impetus behind gun restrictions.

    Sounds like a close one. If he’d gotten a gun on the plane he might have been able to take control of it!

    Ravenwood, see “Egyptair 990” and “Germanwings 9525”.
