A Gun Found On A Plane? Did You Say A Gun???

A Blog by Gary LaPierre

     Yes folks, the F.B.I. is investigating this one.   The same FBI that recently took 16-years to find Whitey Bulger hiding in plain sight in Hollywood.  Yes the feds are trying to figure out how a gun got onto a Jet Blue plane between Boston and New Jersey.   A stun gun yes……but a gun.   I don’t care if it was machine gun or a BB gun, but a gun turns up in the seat back pocket of a flight out of Boston and the only hope we have, is that it was put there by some knucklehead from the ground crew intentionally….to spice up an otherwise boring day in the airline industry.

     How could this happen?   Is it possible someone went through security with that gun?    If that’s even remotely possible, this incident should scare the heck out of all of us who occasionally have the ugly mis-fortune of having to fly.   A stun-gun on a commercial flight out of Boston?   What the Hell is going on here?  Is the TSA that incompetent?   I don’t think so, in spite of having been fondled and photographed a couple of times recently passing through security….but what are the other possible explanations?   I heard someone  suggest maybe an Air Marshall left it behind my mistake.    I can’t buy that theory either, but if that is the case, that should cause us even more concern.

     It doesn’t matter to me how it got there, but it got there.   A gun on a passenger jet flying out of Boston.   Not a knife….not a box-cutter…..a gun…a stun gun and I for one find this scary and unforgivable.
