#2 he has regularly been an anti-gun vote, and has opposed legislation that would allow for concealed carry in Illinois.
Yet another clear indication of his politics.

#3 he had the gun because he moonlights at Allpoints Security and Detective Inc.
A State Senator has to moonlight as a security guard? He's not much of a Illinois politician if he can't support himself with graft.

#4 Thought it was legal to carry a gun on a plane so long as it was declared at the check-in desk, unloaded, the empty magazine was dropped from the firearm, the ammo was stored separately in its own box, and the firearm was in a locked hard case. Most airlines have firearms transport policies listed at their website. It is very important to check and see what the local regulations are where you take-off and where you land. I'm not sure I'd do this these days as I would fear losing it in baggage transit.

Like being a licensed diamond courier, except without the classy cool factor.

You can check guns in the manner you explain, but not carry them onto the plane. Your correct on the second part as well. A layover or cancelled flight in New York after you checked a gun can be a real problem, actually a felony.

#8 What. No. Why would someone in NY steal a gun, they are illegal there, Plaxico Burress and Bloomer Mayor said me so.
