David Huckabee, a son of Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, was arrested at an Arkansas airport Thursday after a federal X-ray technician detected a loaded Glock pistol in his carry-on luggage.
When asked if he thought this incident might hurt his father’s presidential chances, Huckabee responded, “It shouldn’t.” Hmm. Was his usage intended to be imperative or indicative?
Nugent said David Huckabee had a .40-caliber Glock pistol in his black carry-on bag. Eight live rounds were in the gun – none in the chamber – and a nine-round clip was also in the bag. The weapon and ammunition were detained by Little Rock police while David Huckabee’s gun permit was seized and given to the Arkansas State Police.
Mike Huckabee said his son grabbed the bag on the way to the airport and didn’t realize the gun was inside.
“It’s one of those stupid things,” Mike Huckabee said. “He knows better.”
Yeah… so, here’s a guy, so well trained that he has a license to carry a concealed weapon, and he just leaves bags stuffed with loaded guns lying about the house, willy-nilly. And you wonder why I’m left feeling just a tad nervous by the dystopian dream of a heavily armed society?
