Man arrested at Midway Airport in Chicago trying to get gun past security

http://www.gadling.com/2009/01/21/ma...-get-gun-pass/

January has been a busy month for Chicago-based Transportation Security Administration screeners, as three people have been arrested for trying to get guns through security at the city's two airports.
The most recent case happened yesterday when the TSA nabbed a 46-year-old man named Russell Kess at Midway trying to sneak a loaded 9mm Glock in a Crown Royal liquor bag in his carry-in. Workers spotted it through the X-ray machine.

Now, of course, had these people tried to get thru DEN & their names were Alvin Crabtree, the outcome would have been completely different.

Yeah, I'm glad to keep the bad guys off the plane. The weapons are not allows go through at checkpoint. This is not unacceptable for those 3 people were trying to sneaks through at checkpoint. I knows TSA is being caught with 3 man were trying to be sneaks the guns. So otherwise, I think TSA need to keep these people off the plane immediately. I knows we are never to bring the guns or knives at airports. They will be charges of misdemeanor for first degrees. They will payable civilized penalties for more than $1,000 fined.
