    Before all these irrational gun laws, kids could and did take guns to school.

    there were no mass shootings, and the only reported uses was in defense of their school.

    It's not the guns, it is society, it is the people.

    Let's fix the right thing and not punish the good guys.

    Amazing that some think that not allowing guns on airplanes is a violation of the 2nd Amendment.

    I suppose not allowing a 3rd grader to bring a loaded gun to show and tell falls into the same category?

    "..the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

    2nd amendment rights violated.

    "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures..."

    4th amendment rights violated.

    "NO person...be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

    Double violation of 5th amendment rights.

    "...No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

    14th amendment rights violated.

    When it comes to guns or bombs, more than 1 is a lot. 15 owners in less than 4 months have endangered thousands and disrupted travel plans. He should be convicted and serve jail time. Not only would this individual not do this careless act again maybe 14 other knuckleheads would not as well. Don't let some careless gun owners endanger the rights and security of others. Zero tolerance and maximum punishment are needed and we will be a much safer society.

    This is not typical of gun owners. If it were, then there would be many more than fifteen gun seizures in a year. He is being investigated for an intentional weapons violation which is a class A misdemeanor. If convicted he could face jail time but that's not likely. He will forfeit his gun and probably some cash. Oh, and he gets his name in the paper. I bet he will never forget about his gun again.

    So typical of a lot of gun owners. If you made this a mandatory 1 year jail sentence and put a lot of signage around the security area it would never happen. But then gun owners would say it's too harsh and an infringment on their 2nd amendment. Time to start throwing the book at careless gun owners and the cost they incur to our society!

    How dare they interfere with his constitutional right.
    What part of "shall not be infringed" do these security people not understand?

    "the (man) stated he knew there was a gun in the bag and forgot it was in the front pocket,"

    What? As opposed to being in the side pocket?

    Another example of a gun owner who does not take gun ownership seriously enough.

    This falls under the category of

    "you may not be responsible enough to own a gun if ......"

    You don't forget about a gun in your pocket....
