Montana Gun Owner Arrested at Airport with Several Guns

Montana Gun Owner Arrested at Airport with Several Guns
USA Today reports
Harold Waller, 45, was arrested Thursday afternoon after Transportation Security Administration officials found a gun in one of his carry-on bags, said Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy Jason Ramos.
When TSA screeners conducted a more thorough check, they found Waller was carrying a loaded gun, and had two other semi-automatic weapons packed in his carry-on bags, Ramos said.
After Waller was arrested, deputies searched his car and said they found eight more guns, some of which were loaded.
Waller, from Circle, Mont., was trying to board a US Airways flight to Phoenix.
Now, what could the pro-gun crowd possibly use to excuse this guy? Did he just forget? No, that doesn't seem likely. Was he worried about his safety in the Phoenix area and simply wanted to exercise his 2nd Amendment rights? Did he think the TSA was so busy frisking little kids and disabled old ladies that he'd get through?
No, nothing seems to explain why this lawful gun owner did what he did. I wonder if he had a concealed carry permit. I guess he could have, so many gun owners do these days.
I suppose some of the real gun-rights extremists long for the day when no checks were made and if a guy like Waller got on a plane armed to the teeth, at least they'd have a gun or two to protect themselves and others. Does that attitude make sense to you?
I'll go out on a limb here and tell you what I think, in spite of my inability to read the guy's mind. He had bad intentions and the TSA did a splendid job disarming and arresting him.
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
