NBA Exec Gets Loaded Gun Onto Flight

NBA Exec Gets Loaded Gun Onto Flight, The gaffe is one of "hundreds" of lapses in airline screening occurring daily, says a congressman. TSA Lets Loaded Guns Past Security, on to Planes, After reports of two loaded guns making it past airport screeners and on to passenger flights this week, one congressman says "hundreds" of prohibited items get past screeners every day, a situation he calls "intolerable."

In one of the incidents last week, Transportation Security Administration screeners allowed a New Orleans Hornets executive to board a plane from New Orleans to Newark, N.J., with a loaded handgun in his baggage.

Hornets Vice President Joshua Richardson reportedly took the bag with the gun on his trip by accident, saying it belonged to his wife.
