I heard about this story a few hours ago, but wanted to wait on it because I figured it had to be an April’s Fool Joke because you would have to be an idiot to try to get a loaded weapon on a plane.
Apparently Browns Defensive Tackle Shaun Rogers is such an idiot. Here are the details from MSNBC.com.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer confirms, so it’s not an April Fool’s attempt. Rogers was preparing to board a plane when officers discovered the loaded weapon in his carry-on bag. Rogers told the officers that he forgotten the gun was there. We’re assuming he was not planning to use the gun on the plane, but that leaves unexplained why he was carrying a loaded weapon in the first place.
I don’t know about you, but how do you forget a loaded weapon in your carry on.
Even if that is true and he did truly forget that should be reason enough he should never be allowed to have a firearm ever again. What if they gun accidentally went off while he was throwing his bag around?
Maybe he thought the gun was a sub sandwich.
Either he is lying or he is a dummy either way not a good look. Not saying he should go to jail or anything, but as I always say:
SMARTEN UP NAS!!
