Bold is mine! I suspect the anti's will still include this as "gun owner tries to get gun onto airplane." What a maroon! He's a convicted felon in illegal possession of a firearm and he carries it into the airport where he knows he is going to get screened and x-rayed?!!??!?! Never accused him of being smart. And this happened in California, that is unpossible since the gun show loophole is closed in CA so an evil gun dealer must have "lost" it and sold it to him under the table because that is the ONLY way he could have gotten it in CA with their enlightened gun laws.
A 49-year-old man was arrested at Sacramento International Airport this afternoon after Transportation Security Administration employees determined that he had a firearm in his backpack.
Sacramento County sheriff's deputies assigned to the Airport Division responded to a security checkpoint in Terminal B at 1 p.m. today. During the screening process, TSA personnel reported that they believed a passenger was carrying what appeared to be a firearm in his personal backpack.
A search of the passenger's belongings revealed a loaded handgun at the bottom of the backpack, along with several rounds of live ammunition in a magazine, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.
The passenger, identified as Tam Nguyen (above), was arrested without incident. He was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of unlawful possession of a loaded, concealed firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Nguyen is being held on $60,000 bail and is expected to be arraigned this week.
Appeasement with 'Honor'?
