I’m sure that after Bengazi, F&F, and a HUGE gun defeat that they would not bust out with this.

Ah....yeah I’m completely sure of it.

Exactly... just how convenient is that.

So now while the press is reporting on the NRA convention.. they can conveniently mention that some guy shot himself with an “assault weapon”

Suicide victim chooses an AR-15. In public. In an AIRPORT. The DAY BEFORE the NRA convention.

Gosh WHAT are the chances this guy is a liberal...?

I wonder if the liberal MSM will look into this..?

They turned the Ariz shooter apolitical nut into a hardcore Rush fan, so considering what is at stake I WONDER what they’ll turn THIS guy into, huh..?

I wonder.

Such report.....

http://fox4kc.com/2013/05/02/shots-fired-at-bush-intercontinental-airport-in-houston/

The shooter walked in and fired two shots in the air and then shot himself in the head with a pistol, police said.

Police said an air marshal fired at the suspect, but missed. That’s when the man pulled out a gun and shot himself.

Um, walk in? There’s no security until you hit the security line. A collapsed stock AR isn’t that big - one could easily fit in a rollerboard.

...near a security checkpoint...

Glad he shot himself. Corralled, unarmed passengers waiting for TSA thugs to molest them would make it like shooting fish in a barrel.

Unwieldy, yes, but not too big. Another post with a link has it as a pistol tho’, which does make more sense.

Easy. It’s in Texas.

Brings to an interesting story (about Texas).

A man had his daughter sexually assaulted.

The man tracked down the person who did it and killed him.

When the man went to trial (for killing the rapist), he used a Texas law that says Some People Just Need To Be Killed. as his defense.

He was acquitted/let go based on that defense: some people just need to be killed.

I guess this guy thought that he needed to kill himself...

Yeah but how do the reports go from an AR-15 to a pistol?

HOUSTON (FOX 26) -
A spokesman for the Houston Police Department reports that a firearm was discharged around 1:35 p.m. Thursday at Bush Intercontinental Airport.

A stringer with FOX 26 News says someone’s body was found in the lobby of Terminal B of the airport.

The elevator system was shut down in Terminal B.

A collapsible stock AR with a 16" barrel is 30 inches overall length or thereabouts.
The maximum carry on is 24"

I’m hearing that he walked up to the security checkpoint and fired the AR-15 into the air a couple of times. An air marshal fired at him and missed, then the perp pulled out another pistol and shot himself. Ambulance there, he may still be alive?

Hubby just left about an hour ago to help set up for the NRA convention. He does the check-in to inspect any guns that are brought in for the booths, etc. I’ve been telling him for the last couple of days to watch out for someone trying to disrupt the convention, that some anti-gun nut was going to try and make news.

It’s a good thing that the guy was the only one hurt. It should be interesting to find out about the guy’s background.

Usually, the talking heads on the local news can’t bring themselves to call it Bush Airport. Instead, I’ve noticed a trend where they all call it “the Big Airport”.

Today, I’m sure they’ll relish pointing it out as Bush Airport.

There’s no max size for luggage outside of security. I’ve seen some pretty big stuff, bigger than 24”, inside security too.
