    This is crazy!!

    United Airlines Agent Accidentally Short at New Orleans Airport

    The rifle discharged when the agent was checking in the passenger who was checking the rifle as baggage. Clearly not unloaded.
    I've checked weapons before on NW to KWI...it was not that big of a deal...I just had to ensure I had the right documentation, show them to the agent, sign a form, etc. I do not think I had to show it was unloaded...thought that was a forgone conclusion! Of course, the military is pretty meticulous about ensuring weapons are clear.

    I am glad the agent did not receive a life threatening wound!

    :mad:Unfortunately some gun owners are irresponsible. I hope this does not lead to an airlines weapons ban. :(
