http://www.cnn.com/2011/12/12/travel/gun-carryon-atlanta-airport/index.html I haven't seen any other postings of this yet - but if I've missed it, please delete my thread. This is interesting because what happened here is that everyone at the checkpoint was put in danger, not by the forgetful traveler who neglected to remove his gun from his carry-on, but by the officer who was investigating it! I'm sure the TSA will crow loudly about this one as well -- WOOHOO another gun kept off a plane! But it's clear the passenger had no intent to USE the gun on the plane. Curious what others in here think of this. My first thought is that if these are the kinds of bozos investigating guns at checkpoints, then the actual process of searching for and removing guns from carry-ons is clearly way more dangerous to travelers than memory-challenged passengers carrying them onto planes!
