    The Ugly - Traveling with a Firearm

    Ok, so the man at the center of this story checked a bag for a flight to Mexico. Guess what happened?? The TSA at JFK discovered a 9mm, wrapped in tin foil inside a DVD player in the check bag next to his skivvies. By the way, who uses a portable DVD player these days? That is so 2004!

    Are you speaking of the man who wrapped the gun in tin foil, or TSA?

    He is lucky he didn't get to Mexico because things would be far worse for him if he was caught.

    He could have bought one on the street in Mexico easily enough. Maybe one of those the ATF smuggled into Mexico during Fast and Furious!

    Besides, why should our TSA help secure the Mexican border when they won't help us with ours?

    I wouldn't go to Mexico without a gun, so I guess I'm not going!

    I am totally flabbergasted that the tin foil didn't work any better than that. I mean, it works so good on potatoes

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    I never have any trouble traveling with a firearm (or two), keep it on me concealed the whole trip, in my vehicle.

    I looked closely at the gun and tried to understand if it was some ugly knockoff of a Smith 469. Then I blew the picture up, and whatever was left of the guy's IQ in my mind just went to zero.

    The "gun" is a Zoraki 914 airsoft pistol.
