Thumbs down ...forgot gun in bag ...

Bonnies coach fined $1,000 on weapons charge

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- St. Bonaventure baseball coach Larry Sudbrook was fined $1,000 Thursday after he pleaded guilty to trying to carry a .357 Magnum revolver onto a commercial airplane.
U.S. District Court magistrate Kenneth Schroeder accepted the plea to a federal infraction while describing Sudbrook's mistake as "mind-boggling." But, Schroeder said, "I'm firmly convinced, based on your background, that it was the result of human error."
Sudbrook, who completed his 22nd year with the Bonnies last month, said he was relieved to put the case behind him with the plea bargain.
"I want to apologize to all the good people at St. Bonaventure for the embarrassment that I have caused," he said. "I made an honest but regrettable mistake, and I am truly sorry about it."
In accepting the plea, Schroeder ordered Sudbrook to forfeit ownership of the confiscated weapon.
He was arrested and charged with a federal felony, which could have carried jail time, after the gun was found in his carryon bag at a security checkpoint at Buffalo Niagara International Airport on May 10.
Sudbrook was with his team on their way to a three-game series against Atlantic 10 Conference rival Charlotte and forgot he had left the gun in a zippered compartment a few days earlier, according to his testimony.
A hunter and gun collector, Sudbrook said he traveled with the same bag three weeks earlier, and noted he wouldn't have noticed the gun because the bag was already heavy with game and recruiting reports. Sudbrook faces potential school sanctions when his case is reviewed by a panel this summer. "It was certainly a mistake that made for some dark days around my house for a while," Sudbrook said. "I'd like to thank the U.S. Attorney's office and the judge. They understand that I was a tunnel-visioned coach, who was focused on preparing to beat a nationally ranked team, Charlotte, and not something I should have been focused upon."

It's not especially cool but I know I've forgotten twice to stash my Swiss Army knife in my checked bag when I had the chance. The damn thing costs $40 so luckily I was able to mail it to myself before I boarded the plane both times.

Not as serious but spaced out in a similar way.

I fail to grasp the magnitude of the situation. The only reason that this thread is of interest is the fact that we've bought into the government's view that air travel is inherently risky due to the potential for terrorism. The government and, subsequently, the media have concluded that anyone who would even think of carrying a gun onto an airplane should be shot on sight. The crime is simply too abhorrent to contemplate.

Carrying a gun onto an airplane is no different than carrying a gun into a drinking establishment or a gun into NYC for example. They are not permitted in either location (in these parts anyway). If you are caught with the gun in the wrong place, you must face the consequences. I'm sure it happens to folks everyday. They forget to lock the gun in the cabinet and travel with it to inappropriate places.

It doesn't make the newspapers.

Think about the action of the coach. He made an honest mistake. You all buy into the BS that the government has done to make it a "horrifying act" that clearly indicates a possible "terrorist".

The sad part of this thread are the responses to the OP.

Telepathy and prejudice would sure simplify the judicial system.
