    Well, duh!

    I constantly wonder about all of these folks that "forget" they have an illegal, concealed handgun with them as they go through a security check point.

    According to the police report, Valdes admitted he knew it was illegal to bring a firearm into the airport and that he just "forgot." He also said the gun was not registered and he did not have a concealed weapons permit.
    Knew it was illegal and just forgot; me thinks he will be looking for new employment.

    Who cares if he "forgot"!?!? It's not a valid argument or defense. He doesnt not have a permit, and the gun isnt registered. End of story. You cant forget you have a gun with you if you dont carry one illegally in the first place. Idiot.

    It has been rather obvious that the TSA didn't hire the brightest and best! And it is these yo-yos who are charged with keeping the flying population safe! No thanks, if I can't drive to someplace, I'm not going! I had to fly when I was sent TDY when I was working, but now that I am retired, I NEVER intend to get on another airplane for the rest of my life! It just isn't worth the hassel!

    Police: TSA Employee Brings Gun To Airport

    POSTED: Tuesday, October 11, 2011
    UPDATED: 11:04 am EDT October 12, 2011



    MIAMI -- A Transportation Safety Administration employee was taken into custody Tuesday after he unlawfully tried to bring a handgun into the secured area of Miami International Airport, police said.

    Just before noon, Eduardo Valdes, 29, a screener for TSA was reporting for duty on the sterile side of the airport. He was passing through an employee security checkpoint when another screener noticed a handgun in his bag.

    According to the police report, Valdes admitted he knew it was illegal to bring a firearm into the airport and that he just "forgot." He also said the gun was not registered and he did not have a concealed weapons permit.

    Valdes was taken to the Miami-Dade County Jail.
    Well he doesn't have to worry about "forgetting" again, his gun owning days are over.

    My question is, since when are gun "registered" in FL?

    They aren't, we do not register our guns in FL.

    I'm sure his next job will require him to ask, "You want fries with that?".

    Lucky you, who live in FL. It's a real PITA here in MI.

    Based on this, although misleading, I would say the article is correct. It isn't registered. The fact that it doesn't have to be does not make it any less true.
