Delaware senator charged for carrying gun into airport

Source: The Hill

BY JOSH DELK - 06/23/17 05:57 PM EDT


Delaware State Senator Brian Pettyjohn faces a felony charge for accidentally carrying a weapon into an airport on Thursday morning, Delaware State News reports.

Pettyjohn was detained in the Salisbury Regional Airport Thursday morning when Transportation Security Administration agents found a loaded handgun in his carry-on bag. The senator said that he accidentally left the firearm in his laptop case.

He was travelling to the Southern Regional Education Board conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Police announced the felony charges on Friday, which carry the potential of a 10-year jail sentence. Pettyjohn was questioned by the Sherriff’s office at the airport, and was later released without arrest.

You got that right. If it was a politician of color I would hate to see what would have happened.

10. Too bad he wasn't in Texas where they are more forgiving

link:https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/flights/todayinthesky/2015/12/31/texas-airports-open-carry-gun-law/78131864/

Federal law still prohibits passengers from bringing weapons to or past airport security checkpoints and the TSA is permitted to issue fines to travelers found with loaded or unloaded guns. But an amendment to the Texas handgun licensing law that went into effect in September says a passenger found with a licensed gun at an airport checkpoint won’t be subject to felony charges as long as the gun was taken to the airport accidentally (the explanation the TSA says most everyone caught with a gun at an airport seems to give) and as long as the passenger immediately takes their gun away from the secure area when it’s found.

12. Another armed snowflake.

I don't much care about prison. But itmwould be nice if a felony conviction makes him lose his seat.
