How come no pictures???
Is he white??
And don't you mean a
"semi-automatic weapon"?????
Sounds funny to hear the media describe weapons lately as if they know what they are talking about.
CNN the other day called a M-16 a sniper's rifle.

I would be willing to bet that 80% of people do not know the difference between semi-automatic and fully-automatic weapons, let alone the Media. They don't seem to know jack-shit when it comes to weapons. In this case, what difference does it matter if he's white or otherwise?

They do have sniper's rifles that were originaly the M-16 A2. You put a 20x scope on it w/ a colaspable bipod on the stock and call it a sniper rifle.

Semi-automatic,you pull the trigger once for each round you want to squeeze off.

Automatic, you pull and hold the trigger and the weapon continues to fire, until magazine is empty, weapon jams, etc.

We should all be taking guns onto planes when we travel after 9/11. I see nothing wrong with what he did.

Remember when 10 reported some PR throw an explosive in their news van, but it was really only a fire cracker? LMFAO

Remember when 10 reported there was another City Shooting and the Victim Shot was taking to the Hospital, but it was really only a BB gun? LMFAO

I'm not surprised they tried to sensationalize this one by calling it an """Automatic """ Weapon.

Wouldn't need security guys if we all took our rightful place in the scheme of things. Problem is, the government has taken our ability (rights) away. And, we haven;'t said I, yes, or no, when they have done these unconstitutional things.

My uncle shut down the entire GRA pre-9-11 when I was a teenager. He had flown in from Georgia. Aunt had to go to the restroom. He sat on a bench, setting two carry-ons on the floor in front of him and the small bookbag with the trivial pursuit game in it on the end of the bench. When she came out, he got up, but forgot one of the bags.

Some old lady freaked out, called security, they called in a bomb squad, shut down the airport. Dissected the box open to disarm "the bomb". Called Georgia to track him down. Had to go back to the airport to get questioned, etc. Scary, but funny now how a simple mistake could cause so much trouble.

They let him on the airplane? Makes me feel real safe. A nut case for sure. He did not know it was in the luggage? Sure? A loaded gun? This was not a mistake.

Hey 10,
Your story says the guy with the gun is being charged with a felony, and you say it's not the first time a gun has been found at the airport,
and we now know that this guy is black, so my question to you is:

where the other people caught with a gun at the airport charged with a felony?????
And if NOT, where they white???

I'm guessing the only reason they did this story is because they want us to know that the security at the airport is working and not playing solitaire on there computers. sorry but how come they did the story now instead of doing it the first time a gun was found in a carry on??? its because of the police officer who was caught playing solitaire on his computer... now they want us to believe that airport security do there job even if the police officers dont.
