    NY Post: TSA let NBA exec carry a handgun on flight to Newark

    Does the TSA know what a gun looks like? The bumblers at the Transportation Security Administration let an NBA executive fly from New Orleans to Newark with a loaded handgun in his bag without calling a foul, The Post has learned. New Orleans Hornets VP Joshua Richardson had allegedly taken the weapon on his trip to the New York area by accident after he grabbed his wife’s bag containing the weapon, instead of his own. The b-ball blunder came to light last night after TSA agents at Newark Airport found the .38-caliber handgun in the luggage as Richardson tried to fly home, Port Authority police reported.
