Probably in a Gun case. I walked into Oakland Intl. on my way to hunt in Texas, got to the Check in desk, told the gal I had a couple Guns, She said open the case and show her they were unloaded. When I picked the rifle up and opened the bolt, I could hear everyone behind me inhale (or gasp!) They did it again with the revolver, Although I did put a trigger lock on it just for the hell of it before hand. People looked at me like I had a third eye in my forehead.

At the other end in texas, every other piece of luggage going around the bag claim belt was a gun case.

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.

Agree and agree.

Maybe it was under a trenchcoat. Don’t know, as I’m not there.

He wouldn’t have looked out of place today either. We had a cold front blow thru this am and it’s sitting right around 50 degrees right now. At least in Austin.

Another report says all flights are grounded for now and all the passengers will be re-screened.

NWS (US Government Weather Service) has that Bush Intercontinental Airport is 72 degrees.

However, there is a north-west blowing at 15 mph.

It is 200 mph from Austin to Bush Intercontinental.

Some reports are that this guy fired the AR-15 into the air and then pulled out a pistol and shot himself with that.

A public suicide.. at an airport, with an AR-15, day before the NRA Convention.

Weird.

Guess what happened three months and twenty miles from Denver's NRA convention in 1999...

Columbine.

“I mean - how’d he even get INTO the terminal with an AR?”

In Texas, an AR-15 is a clothing accessory.

He parked and walked into the terminal. He was in line at security when it went down.

Likely he just had the rifle in a duffel bag...

He fired the rifle up twice, an air Marshall fired at him and missed, then he pulled a pistol and shot himself.

I just joined the thread from the Ruah thread, so I’m trying to catch-up. Honest.

I’m missing too many facts here; something’s weird. Gotta do some article digging on this story.

Shep is one of the main reasons I don’t watch FOX anymore. His crying jag and subsequent running of his eye shadow during Katrina was downright pathetic and embarrassing..

Yep.
All three of those months were filled with anti-gun this and anti-gun that.
Denver’s mayor at the time (Wellington Webb) actually spent $5000 (In taxpayer’s money) for a full-page ad in the Rocky Mountain News condemning the NRA and the pending CCW law that was going through the capital at the time.
MEANWHILE...
Webb’s Son was being busted AGAIN for burglary.

Thus began my path deeper into gun ownership.
These jerks simply emboldened me.

Any chance that Terminal B might be the international terminal?

B is the busiest Domestic terminal... mostly, United flights.

So let me get this right ...

A guy enters what is generally considered a gun-free zone (an airport) with an AR-15 and a handgun of some sort. He fires off 2 rounds from the AR, immediately drawing fire from an armed air marshal. Even though the air marshal misses, the attempt is apparently enough to cause the perp to pull his handgun and kill himself on the spot.

Tell me again why armed folks are bad and gun-free zones are good?
