A 12th grade teacher and her husband are fine upstanding folks but like to do "home bedroom movies". This is just for them and not the internet or to show anyone else. The teacher is in a rush for work and takes a tape of a PBS show she was going to use for class. But she did not know that by "accident" one of their movies was on it. She starts the PBS show and walks out for a moment. While she is gone the PBS special switches over to the other content.
That is an "accident" also. Betcha 5 bucks folks would want that teachers head on a platter. And I would not be surprised that she would be fired for her "accident".
Point is IMO we like to forgive folks that have "accidents" with their guns but less forgiving for others that make mistakes.
As far as taking stuff through security, yup, had a ppair of pliers once. But good grief, we are talking about a gun. And I never said to rake her across the coals. But a fine or something else should be done minimum.
