    Huckabee's son arrested with handgun

    Huckabee's son arrested with handgun

    23 minutes ago


    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - David Huckabee, a son of Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, was arrested at an Arkansas airport Thursday after a federal X-ray technician detected a loaded Glock pistol in his carry-on luggage.

    "I removed the bag and asked Mr. Huckabee if he knew what he had in the bag," Little Rock police officer Arthur Nugent wrote in a report after he was summoned to a security checkpoint. "He replied he did now."

    Huckabee, 26, later pleaded guilty in Little Rock District Court after being charged with a misdemeanor count of possessing a weapon in a prohibited place.

    District Judge Lee Munson gave Huckabee a one-year suspended jail sentence and ordered him into 10 days of community service — which Huckabee can avoid by paying $100. Huckabee will be on probation for a year. Fines and costs totaled $855.

    The son of the former Arkansas governor holds a concealed weapons permit. The elder Huckabee, who said last week that Virginia Tech gunman Cho Seung-Hui perhaps could have been stopped if a teacher or student had also been armed, also has a concealed weapons permit.

    Neither the former governor nor David Huckabee returned telephone messages seeking comment.

    Nugent said David Huckabee had a .40-caliber Glock pistol in his black carry-on bag. Eight live rounds were in the gun — none in the chamber — and a nine-round clip was also in the bag. The weapon and ammunition were detained by Little Rock police while David Huckabee's gun permit was seized and given to the Arkansas State Police.

    That is a nightmare I have, forgetting to take your gun out or off before going some place like that is stupid, but something any of us could do.

    Actually no, it isn't that uncommon for something like this to happen and you don't get charged with anything terrorist related unless you were attempting to do something terrorist related.

    I don't really worry about not remembering that I am armed with a handgun.

    I think that's the EXCUSE that people like this give when they get CAUGHT TRYING to bring a handgun where it is prohibited.

    (Notice that I did not say "trying to bring a handgun where they 'shouldn't.'")

    I dunno, there are times i forget that im carrying my keltec or snubby just because im so used to them being there. (banks, post offices, and the bar section of a restuarant once) I know its no excuse but hey we all do stupid stuff when we are in a hurry. Although i would probably have to have a stroke to forget i have a glock in my carry on!!!

    Responsibility...

    Part of the responsibility of CC is knowing where your sidearm is...not leaving it unattended. Much like my feeling of 'no such thing as an AD'...it is a Negligent Discharge...PERIOD.

    We have discussed individuals who have left guns behind in a bathroom...by accident?...or lack of responsibility? I guess it's a matter of WHO does it! If I should leave a gun behind or in my bag at the airport, it's an accident. If someone else should leave a gun behind or in their bag at the airport, it's negligence.

    Both the accident and the negligence equal a lack of responsibility.

    The consequences?...Not sure...I just think we must give the ultimate attention to the ultimate responsibility.

    OMO...YOMV

    Stay armed...not at the airport...stay safe!

    To bad he did something stupid but it is good to know that a Presidential Candidate has a CHL after I just watched the Dems and of 8 4 of them said that they have had a gun in their house during their adult life.

    I know where my guns are at all times. I just can't relate to this.

    The Huckabee family is pretty pro-gun.

    His wife Janet was featured on the news shooting an MP5 full auto at a police range. She was loving every minute of it.

    It got quite a few responses from the antigun democrats about the image she presented.

    The Huckabee men are avid duck hunters and turkey hunters and the ex gov has been featured in the Arkansas Game and Fish magazine.

    For a potential presidential candidate, one could do much worse.

    My gun is gonna be either on my hip, my safe, my night stand or my range bag.
    I have to be pretty out of it to bring any of the above to a secure airport area with the gun.
