    When I was younger and dumber and well before 9/11 I walked into the federal building with my bride to change her last name with social security. The guard told me I could not enter with it and that they had no place for me to check my weapon. I waited outside. There was an officer right there. He merely checked my LTC and it was a non-issue. Were the same thing to occur today, I'd lose my license and probably spend big $$$ staying out of jail.

    Random thoughts:

    I wonder if he'll get his gun and permit back...(maybe there should be a point system, similar to a DL)

    Why would he have the gun unloaded (i.e. no round chambered)

    Did the press think everybody carries "dead" ammunition?

    Pet peeve: magazines are NOT clips

    I agree with most that I always know where my CCH is at. I am not likely at all to leave it in a bag or forget it somewhere. However I am so comfortable with it on my side that I have been known to forget about it and be someplace I should not be and have to go back out to the car to disarm.

    Stupid mistake, indeed. Mike Huckabee was the pastor at my sister's church several years ago. He is a good man. I must say I don't appreciate his politics on "public health issues", wherein he forces smokers out of restaurants and other buildings, but as was previously stated, he could make a fine president.

    I carry 24/7. I can see forgetting about a pocket gun as you enter a post office. We are ALL human and will ALL make stupid mistakes.

    However, when you go to an airport, you know you must go through the screening process. How can a gun owner not make sure he is perfectly legal before getting to the secured area?

    The answer is CARELESSNESS!

    Besides, the loaded gun left in a bag bothers me too.

    If my gun is not one me, it is either locked in my bedside gunvault or unloaded and locked in my gun safe. NO EXCEPTIONS!

    I hate to see these things happen to pro-gun people but maybe this guy should take some refresher safety course.

    You need to be very aware of where you can carry and not. It is your responsibility. Steve48

    Actually, this is how this sort of incident is commonly charged, at least in most Southeastern states. It has happened in my area several times, and has always been pursued as a misdemeanor weapons charge. My question is this: "8 rounds" in the pistol and "9 in the spare mag"? Why the heck is he carrying a partially loaded pistol? His dad is loaded. Surely his son can afford to be fully loaded.

    I agree with some of the guys on here. The guy made a mistake, whether he knew the gun was there or not. Everybody fouls up every once in a while. Chalk it up to experience and move on. It's too bad he may not get his CCL back. Also, I agree that having a presidental candidate that has a CCL is refreshing. I don't necessarily agree with everything Huckabee has done but I believe he's a good man.

    depends on the state. in NV it would also only be a misdemeanor.
