Now that Jr is on his way to a destiny with Justice, maybe it is time for his constituancy to elect someone on the content of their character rather then the color of their skin.

JJ jr. will get off just like Maxine Walters, Eric Holder and Charlie Rangle did, if you're a black democrat politician you can not and WILL NOT be brought to justice or you are a RACIEST.
If you think Guam will tip over because of to many marines and you are a mental black democrat that's OK too, just ask Hank Johnson.

Who would have thought, a libral trying to smuggle a gun into a restricted area, and then will probably vote against gun right.

When pigs fly. Even if OJ was running against the Virgin Mary blacks would still give him the overwhelming majority.

How do you forget a gun in your carry on? Democrats want to be the only ones who can have guns.

Illinois does not have concealed carry so I'm curious how he got a permit to carry off duty.

So the folks who wants guns everywhere, are against a Dem who brought a gun to the airport?

You'd think they would support him, demanding guns be allowed in airports.

I could see how such a thing could happen if one isn't careful or in a hurry. But if you don't remember where your gun is and how it impacts where you are...then you're not being careful with your gun.

I gotta a baretta by the way! Nice one.

Why would they support him? He voted against concealed carry.

A typical liberal idiot. Cut out of the same cloth as his brother in crime, Braack Obama. Do as a say, not as I do. But don't most criminal's carry weapons?

There is more truth to that then fiction. It is that Affirmative Action thing. They are not expected to be smart.
