The loaded sky

Grammy's mad, and she's packin' heat:

A 66-year-old Greenfield woman was detained at Indianapolis International Airport for carrying a 9mm semiautomatic handgun at a security checkpoint.

Judy Muenster told airport police that she always carried the gun with her and "did not know what the problem was," according to a police report.

[. . .]

Muenster then stated that she carries that bag and that firearm with her everywhere she goes and didn't give it a second thought before coming to the airport," Officer Carrie Godme said in her report.

I've generally argued for letting people have their guns in most places (such as colleges, where the right to concealed-carry is a growing trend, and bars & restaurants, about which see the Tennessee law, in national parks, even in our cars in the company parking lot), but I have to confess to a certain queasiness at the thought of being on an airplane full of guns.

And how can a sentient human being not know about the official disapproval of guns in airports?

I'll never criticize grammy's cooking again.
