Barry Switzer should have been shot after letting Michael "Cocaine" Irvin run his mouth on national television.

BFD If he wasn't pointing it then you must assume an oops. I know I've reached for my wallet in a bar and realized I haven't disarmed. Just quickly excuse yourself and put it in your car. No big deal. Freaking cops are unspooled these days.

"I must"? He wasn't "armed". He PACKED IT! Actually, you're right, bringing a loaded gun through airport security is no big deal... What was I thinking.

You don't think terrorists would like a do-over? Ohhhhhhh, you found my gun infidel. Okay, okay, I won't bring it through. I'll just go put it back in the car.

Yes. And there would be just as many people calling out a white player for being a ****, too.

I would think that as long as it is legally bought and registered to him he should walk on a "sorry judge I forgot it was in that bag".
