    New Twist to Missing Man from Virginia

    I just saw the updates to this story tonight. The news is now reporting that the missing man may have been carrying a handgun. I don't know why they think that. He was planning to go into DC, so if he was a CHP holder, he should know he can't carry there.

    Certainly bears watching this story. At first the media was trying to cast suspicion on "slugging," which is stupid. Far more risk walking around in DC than from slugging.

    Withdrawing money from an ATM should provide a security tape.

    Me thinks this does not bode well.

    I agree. They did say in earlier reports that the text message they received during the 10AM hour had content which they believe could only have come from him. I haven't seen any particular details reported on the ATM transaction.

    Duck! Flying pig alert

    Buckley, who was completing his PhD in microbiology, may have a handgun with him, police said. But they added he was “absolutely no danger to anyone.”
    I demand - DEMAND, I say - to see that written in each and every other article that discusses the fact that someone possessed a firearm unless that person also is alleged to have made a specific threat[ening action] towards another person.

    I'll be over in the corner timing how long snowballs survive while waiting for that to happen.

    stay safe.

    Well, but he's from Virginia, right? Ergo, carrying a handgun.
    By the way, nothing I say on this website as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice, merely personal opinion. Everyone having a question regarding the application of law to the facts of their situation should seek the advice of an attorney competent in the subject matter of the issues presented and licensed to practice in the relevant state.

    Update/additional information shows ATM security cam images that would seem to indicate he was alone at that point.

    ^emphasis mine

    Now, why would you think that (reference to the bold section)??
    How many chper's come here asking the most basic of questions that should have been covered in their class or during their research to insure they were legal. Have we not had chper's that wondered across enemy lines only to ask LEO where could they store their firearm while visiting their fine city.

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Missing man found alive and well in Maryland campground. Very strange though and no answers provided yet as to WHY he "disappeared."

    We had some friends - husband went missing around 1990. He was a lawyer, was in NYC and disappeared from his hotel.
    Ross Perot's security guys researched it, figured he just walked out on family - typical when someone 'disappears in NYC'. Community/church helped raise his family, sent kids to college, etc. Found him a few years back living in WV/NC area - dummy contacted Texas regarding his law license.

    Don't know if this is the issue here or the guy was just off his meds or got some bad 'shrooms...
