Wherein we learn once again, thatwhen a white guy tries to get on a plane with a gun it is just an “honest mistake”.
Notice Jason used the term “white guy” rather politician! I’ll bet if it were Tom Carper trying to bring his West Virgina flint-lock pistol aboard Jason would have said, feds are picking on our elder senator.
As for Delaware Senator Brian Pettyjohn and OMG he’s my local rep, He didn’t board a plane with concealed hand gun. It was interception when his baggage was being checked. And for the record;“You may transport unloaded firearms in a locked hard-sided container as checked baggage only. Declare the firearm and/or ammunition to the airline when checking your bag at the ticket counter. The container must completely secure the firearm from being accessed. Locked cases that can be easily opened are not permitted. Be aware that the container the firearm was in when purchased may not adequately secure the firearm when it is transported in checked baggage. Contact the TSA Contact Center with questions you have regarding TSA firearm regulations and for clarification on what you may or may not transport in your carry-on or checked baggage.”
So Brain Pettyjohn had a brain-fart and left his hand gun in his laptop computer case vs following procedure aka law in this case. There was no criminal content!
I have mixed feelings on the outcome of this case. I don’t think it should warrant jail-time and though probation seems appropriate. I personally feel loss of concealed permit for 5 years should be applied to him or anyone if deemed no criminal intent. Call it the stupid consequence.
I do plan on going to one of Senator Brian Pettyjohn’s meet and greet coffee get together or possibly see him at the annual Long Neck Groundhog Cook-off or Paradise Bar and Grill Show Me Your Ass Tattoo night. But than again if he is packing it might not be a good place for a blogger to go to. I hear Dogfish is coming out with IPA Gunpowder Ale just for Brain. God ! I hope its better than that Chocolate Lobster shit.
Brian, I don’t care what Delaware Liberal Jason or Senator Sokola says about you. Shake if off and move forward. And please don’t take you laptop to PO appointments.
