#1 Trying to get some street cred to take Jackson's place.

#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.

#7 John,
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.
