Really, really dumb criminals

Really, really dumb criminals
What would possess someone to try to take a firearm onto a plane in your checked luggage?

Especially a felon who can' t own firearms?

And then touch off a round and run when TSA finds it?

I can understand someone forgetting a concealed carry gun - but in your check in luggage?

I believe it’s legal to have an unloaded firearm in your checked luggage. Based on the article (though it’s not completely clear) this nimrod tried to take a loaded gun aboard in his carry-on luggage.

Further evidence that guns aren’t for everyone.

^ Yup. When I traveled for business, I sometimes took my gun to the travel location. I was required to declare it, and demonstrate that it was not loaded, and locked, in my case, in a small gun safe. It then went with my checked baggage.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

Same here, except the business part.

I once arrived in SeaTac with a double side rifle case with an AR -15 an AR-10 a Beretta 96, 2 S+W 331's and magazines and ammo for all.

The damned airlines cut open the external locks despite the case being inspected and sealed.

I had to open it and inspect for theft - right at the baggage claim carousel....

It made some people nervous enough to run away.....


Oh well....

Cool story, but I was really just pointing out the difference between checked and carry-on baggage.

Sorry.. I mispoke saying checked in - I did indeed mean carry on...

Not to be confused with carrion luggage...

You never know when you're going to take a dead deer with you on the aircraft.....

Better than really really smart criminals. Not that I want them at all but given the choice I'll take the dumb ones.

A mate had a criminal brother in law.  At one point he did three years for robbing a bank.

The judge commented that the entire endeavour was so inept that were it not for traumatising bank employees, it would be funny.

I met him after he'd been released.  Stunningly unintelligent and ignorant, with delusions of grandeur, incapable of accepting responsibility for his actions.. In other words, a stereotypical petty career criminal.

I went to school with a guy up the road - nice guy - who robbed a local bank dressed in drag.

He got away with it - but then was bragging about it at a pool party. Somebody ratted him out for the reward.

He got arrested in a swimsuit.

Not prefered jail attire..
