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.

What bothers me is that the press had no coverage of this happening. This is something that would likely be of interest to the good citizens of Moscow on the Colorado. So, either the press doesn't care about htis happening or doesn't want to report it for one reason or another, or the APD is reporting/recording this in such a way that it is not picked up by the press. Not really sure which but either way it is a disservice at best and dishonest at worse.

OK maybe it is me but this just fits into the pattern of the government forgetting that they are servants of the people not the masters of us. That or maybe I'm just tired of all the governments crap telling everyone that we are too stupid to know what is good for us and have just really had it with them.

The afternoon was Competition Pistol. That's an introduction to the different pistol shooting sports. We explain the various rules and classes of equipment and set up a few stages so people can shoot the different sports stages and get an experience and understand what they are doing when they go to a match. This was a fun class for both instructors and students. They all definately got it and that was clear on the IPSC stage we set up. They pretty much all shot the stage carefully and got close to maximum points. Out of 17 students and 10 targets on the stage and each student running the stage twice, I think there were 2 missed shots total!
Now I have rest and work around the house to catch up with.

Phillipe Calderon is an ASS! After a US Border Patrol Agent was attacked by ILLEGALS trying to cross the border ILLEGALLY another agent discharged his duty weapon to save the life of his fellow officer who had been attacked by a man wielding a board with nails in it and rocks, Calderon had the balls to say, "I demanded punishment for the guilty,". What a load of horse shit. And that is really an insult to horses everywhere. I'll apologize to mine when I get home.
And not hte ACLU has gotten involved where they don't belong with this gem,
'The American Civil Liberties Union of San Diego and Imperial Counties questioned the latest killing.
"We simply cannot allow our law enforcement agents to use lethal force when confronted with rock throwers," said Kevin Keenan, the group's executive director.'

Funny thing was, in talking to the Boss, he mentioned this is his first fire in Texas but he is used to working farther north and they are sandbagging in Montana. So I mentioned that I knew about the flooding because my Inlaws are in MT. He asked where and when I said south of Helena, he replied with "near Clancy?" Well, they are near Clancy and turns out he has family that lives just down the mountain from them.
Anyway, had a great chat with them and I made it VERY clear, now that I know they are here and they know where I am, their money is no good here. They are about to take off and get their ops started for the morning so they are leaving but should they make it back, they will be well fed and taken care of.
So, this morning there are three SEATs at the airport. Different tail numbers than yesterdays aircraft. The Sky Crane is flying out of Huntsville so no pictures of it. They are working overtime on our fires. While the fire is still contained inside the initial evacuation area, the flares are out of control. After being 25% contained yesterday midday, the word last night was it was out of control again as fires flared all over the place. They have also had to relocate the evacuation area due to the fire headed towards it.

The fire south of us has so far burned ~4000 acres and at least 30 homes. The ground troops really busted ass last night and held it at the highway crossing.

A salute for Dad's Day, The shadow box contains the flag from his funeral at Fort Sam Natl Cemetery, The fruit salad leads off with the Distinguished Flying Cross with 2 Oak Leaf Clusters and the Air Medal with 8 Oak Leaf Clusters. The three spent shell casings are one from each volley of the 21 gun salute at his funeral. (30-06 fired from M-1 Garands) His Dogtag and a collection of the various sets of wings he wore in his career. All this was before he retired and started his second career teaching World Geography and Economics as well as coaching Golf in High School. An incredible man that I never got to know as well as I would have liked to. I miss him and regret that we were really only starting to connect at the very end just before I had my wreck (June 19th of all the ironies) and he was diagnosed with Colon Cancer.This is the first DFC for the young Lieutenant. Somewhere I have the article in Stars and Stripes to go with this. Damn but looking at this picture I see my older brother at that age in profile.
