Default Bowers Arrested - Loaded Handgun in Airport

I'm all for gun rights, but Jesus Christ, how stupid do you have to be?

http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local...191722191.html

"Da'Quan Bowers, a defensive end for the Buccaneers, was arrested at a check-in counter after he was found with a loaded .40 caliber firearm in his carry-on bag, spokesmen for the Port Authority and the Queens District Attorney's office said. He was about to board a US Airways flight to Raleigh, North Carolina."

I was told by a poster here that things like this is a character issue and not a intelligence issue.

not all unintelligent people make bad character decisions. I'm just saying you can't pin the "cancer" label on a guy who has a low SAT score.

So me having concerns about a player for not being very bright equals me pinning the "cancer" label on him? I have concerns about Lacy not running in the combine due to another injury. I guess that means I think he is injury prone as well.

By all accounts Lacy has good character, and but not high aptitude test intelligence. Tebow wasn't smart either, but was universally regarded as a high character guy. If Lacy was white, would you have the same concerns?

All I was saying is you can't judge a guy's character based off an SAT or Wonderlic score. Maurice Clarett got a 20 on the wonderlic. Adrian Peterson got an 18. Does this mean Clarett is smarter, therefore makes better decisions?

The less intelligent guys are more likely to make boneheaded decisions, perhaps. But what is the measure of intelligence? The aptitude tests that are given to college athletes don't measure decision making abilities, or street smarts. It measures book smarts. And running back is one of the few positions in the NFL where a guy without much book smarts can be successful, because it's so instinctive.

You can't assume a guy will have a character problem when he has never gotten in trouble with the law. There's no precedent.

lol, he probably didn't even know he had the gun... I bet his girlfriend wanted to mess with him and she threw it in the bag. "This is what you get for cheating on me!"

How did he get through security though? I mean if he was about to board the flight. And what did they do a secondary screen at the gate to catch him

Says he was arrested at the check-in counter. You stop there to get your boarding pass before you go through security.

One time on my way to Switzerland I threw a bag together really quickly and had forgotten to check what was at the bottom first. I had just moved and had thrown stuff in there. Mid flight I'm digging through the bad looking for something when I find my five inch Spyderco knife.

For about five seconds I was like fvvvvvvvvvvvck, I'm so screwed. I shut my bag and felt nervous for the next 7 hours.

Once I was off the flight I didn't understand how security didn't see it. It wasn't even hidden. Thankfully it wasn't found or I probably would be on the no fly list.

What do you mean? If law abiding citizens are not able to carry guns on planes then only criminals will have them!!

And yet the gun free zone that is the airplane did not prevent 9/11 now did it?

amazing how people can devise numerous ways to keep guns out of law abiding people's hands, but not once have I heard their plan to keep them out of a criminal's hands.

I find it odd how people feel comfortable that people who "forget" there is a loaded gun in their bag makes them feel safer.

Do you really want people this dumb packing heat? Just think what their though process would be in an event where they had to make critical decisions quickly under duress...
