Tea Party Patriots co-founder arrested for handgun at airport


He presented a locked gun box to a Delta Airlines employee during a preflight check-in, which contained a Glock 27 pistol and nineteen 9mm cartridges, according to prosecutors. Meckler told authorities he had the handgun because he gets threats. But he does not have a New York State carry permit.

Meckler was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, a Class C felony, and released following arraignment.
“Mark Meckler, an attorney and National Coordinator for Tea Party Patriots, who holds a concealed-carry permit from the state of California, today was charged with a firearms violation at LaGuardia Airport in New York City,” said Meckler’s lawyer, Brian Stapleton, in a statement.

Why do you think Obama wanted Congress to quickly pass into law his omnibus anti-subversive proposal – for idiots like this one! Since this kind of idiocy is sprouting like black mushrooms overnight, the urgency of passing the bill in Congress is of critical importance!
