Thomas Lewis: Carry-on gun owners should be carried off

September 1, 2013 

Carry-off

I found it hard to believe that gun owners are taking guns to the airport in their carry-on bags. I am glad the TSA is finding them. The gun owner’s excuse that they forgot is quite lame.

All gun owners need to know where their weapons are at all times and to keep them secure. What if a child found the forgotten gun and killed themselves or someone else? The excuse, “I forgot,” is not acceptable. Gun safety comes first.
