I have zero worry about getting arrested at the airport for carrying a gun. Thanks for your concern.

It's addressed huh? Glad there aren't thousands of people in the US thinking that we're idiots then at the very moment then.

Was the pilot not arrested? It's been addressed.

You're the thought police now? Mind your own business.

The guy made a mistake for which he will pay, especially in New York.

Life's too short to take offense every time someone else in the profession does something you don't like. Do you fret over someone not wearing their hat? Tie not perfect?

Law enforcement has taken action. They really don't need your help. This is an excellent time to mind your own business.

Is the guy with the gun a friend of yours?

Don't know him from Adam. Or Eve, for that matter.

I really don't care who he is, either. Do you?

"A Southwest Airlines first officer was detained at the Albany International Airport security checkpoint before his scheduled flight to Chicago Midway Airport today. The Pilot indicated that he was unaware a weapon was in his carryon bag."
It is a big deal, especially if he started his trip at another airport. This is something that affects all of us who use kcm. No need to get defensive!

He started it in NOLA and used KCM there. This absolutely affects us. What a moron.
