    Man With Gun Arrested At Chicago O'Hare
    CHICAGO -- A judge ordered a Michigan man held on $25,000 bail after he allegedly tried to board an airplane in Chicago with a loaded handgun.

    Bond was set Sunday for 67-year-old Francis Cook IV of Delton, Mich., a day after Chicago police say he tried to board a plane at O'Hare International Airport.

    Police say a .380-semiautomatic handgun was found in Cook's luggage as he was checking it in through an X-ray machine at about 11:30 a.m. Saturday. They say the gun had five live rounds in its magazine and one in the chamber.

    Cook was supposed to board an American Airlines flight to Dallas.

    He did not speak during a brief hearing at the Cook County Courthouse.

    His attorney says Cook is a military veteran.

    A clear and blatant violation of A2. Didn't they learn anything from 911?

    "They" will crucify him for this.
    I always open carry one of my Kimber 1911 pistols everywhere I go. Usually in a paddle holster. Nothing fancy, but it works for me.

    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    If his lawyer is worth a crap, he'll use the ex-Lion Shaun Rogers as precident. He did the same thing at an Ohio airport, last I checked he is playing football as we speak...no jail time.

    even if he gets no jail time, he will pay through the nose for a lawyer and court costs.

    So, I am confused. Was this loaded firearm in a bag he was ATTEMPTING to check to be carried UNDER the plane or in a CARRY ON bag?

    If the firearm was in a bag he was attempting to check he has a potential for an easier time BUT THE POWERS THAT BE WILL STILL TRY TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF HIM.

    (8) KEEP IT ON-TOPIC: All gun rights discussions not directly related to open carry should take place in the "General Discussions" forum and topics that are not related to gun rights at all should take place in "The Lounge". Please police your own posts before posting them and help keep OCDO strong and focused.

    +1. If this rule was followed to the letter, it would put this forum down very quickly.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with pointing out a rules violation, fellas.

    This forum is largely self-moderated; the owners can only do so much.

    T Vance is doing the right thing.

    I encourage anyone that finds a thread/post to be "out of line" with the Forum Rules to utilize the "!" inside the triangle icon to report the thread/post to the Admins of this site. Mike (one of the Admins) has expressed to me that this is preferred method, as the information gets to him quicker than just a Private Message (PM) and allows him to perform the role of Admin better.

    It's one thing for people to help police this forum, but when someone posts the SAME thing on 5 or more topics it's a little over board.

    Which ones are the Nazis? The one who policed the location of the post or the ones who are trying to police him?
