    If you 'forget' where your firearm is.... you own the problem.

    Is it happening more often or is the media reporting it more?

    Either way, I completely agree with Anglico, no excuse for "forgetting" where your firearm is!

    This is my biggest pet peeve about off body carry,if they forget they have a gun in their Bag/Purse/Briefcase or whatever then they will eventually leave the bag in a position where they are not in direct control of their firearm and there is a potential for somebody to get access to that firearm possibly resulting in an ND and or property damage person being injured or killed.IMHO they need their permit revoked.

    Any of them work for chick fil a? I wouldn't be too hard on the average guy, but a short investigation on why would be appropriate.

    2 reasons
    1. 1 guy? I could buy that it was an honest mistake, a group of people who know each other? Not so much.
    2. I hate them (chick-fil-a.) and want nothing but the worst for them.
    Mostly the first one.

    So you didn't read the article.

    2. I hate them (chick-fil-a.) and want nothing but the worst for them.
    I know a lot of folks that feel that way about the "teamsters."

    I just love it ... when it's a CEO of a company, and an Illinois Congressman ....... which happened in the last day or so as well at O'Hare Airport. It takes the "redneck" / " gun nut" argument away from the Progressives and anti's.

    It could happen...similar thing happened to me one day with a pocket knife at a ball game. Carry it every day cause it's handy, it wouldn't be very useful as a weapon even if you needed it to be. Went and put it back in the car and it was all cool but was a long walk....
