Brady Campaign: You Can ‘Carry a Gun and Ammo’ in Checked Bag When You Fly
by AWR Hawkins 7 Jan 2017
On January 7–the day after the heinous attack in the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood international gun-free zone–the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Tweeted that you can “carry a gun and ammo in a checked bag” when you fly.
Of course, anyone who flies knows that if they actually try to carry a gun onto a plane–checked or not–they will never make it through security and may never make it out alive.
In fact, the process for traveling with a gun is to unload the weapon, put it in an airline approved container, lock the container, and declare the weapon when checking in for your flight. The airline ticket counter representative then takes the locked container and you are not near the gun again until you get your luggage at your destination.
Yet the Brady Campaign, in an apparent attempt to spin the reality of another shooting in a gun-free zone, is telling their Twitter followers that you “can carry a gun and ammo in a checked bag” when you fly:
The Tweet is well nuanced and makes it seem like you can keep the gun with you, but you can’t. Instead, you must declare and surrender it when checking in for your flight (as noted above).
Now, it is interesting to note that checking guns for hunting trips, target shooting excursions, or self-defense at your final destination is nothing new. In fact, many types of hunts would be severely hampered if hunters lacked the ability to transport their guns to the spot of the hunt via an airline. But instead of pointing these things out and instead of highlighting the fact that Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International has 100 percent gun control–i.e., it is a gun-free zone–the Brady Campaign acts like it discovered something new and frames it in a way that gives the gun control community one more loophole they can seek to close.
Yes, that’s it. It is the “check-your-unloaded-gun-in-your-luggage-and-declare-it-to-the-airline-ticket-counter-representative” loophole.
