    This Utah man got stranded in the Newark, NJ airport. He made a boo-boo and took possession of his luggage that contained a gun. The SCOTUS has declined to hear the appeal of his arrest.

    So he spends 10 days in jail and goes through who-knows-what runaround and at what personal expense trying to get things cleared up and there's no recompense from the authorities who overstepped their legal bounds?

    That, boys and girls, is called "tyranny". Do you think that's too strong a word? It isn't. Google David Olofson if you're unfamiliar with his case and find out what can happen.

    its a clear violation of civil rights. most states continually violate the second ammendment.

    most gun laws especially those in new york and kalifornia violate the 2nd ammendment.

    Refrikendiculous!! How in the name of God is anyone to understand the dumb sh!t laws when transporting a weapon while you are in travel status. This guy should have been covered under freedom of travel statutes and it is always incidents like this one, where someone is trying to do what they think is the right, that expose the need for a National declaration by the SCOUS of what the 2A means and that it applies to all States.

    What bothers the bejeebus out of me is that if one of us screws up and accidentally breaks the law, we're at the mercy of the court. But when those entrusted to enforce the law break the law (i.e. arresting the guy for having a handgun WHILE HE WAS IN TRANSIT which is legal), there are no consequences.

    DO NOT GET ME WRONG!! I am in no way sticking up for the arse sucking laws here in NJ! The charges were dropped and he did get his stuff back,albeit 3years later, what the SCOTUS is refusing to hear is the appeal of his lawsuit. Which is still BS, he should be compensated for his HARASSMENT and get a formal apology, on the news and in writing! NJ sucks SO bad! I wish my great-great grandparents had settled in Arizona!!
