If you're flying and forget to leave your gun at home, should you be arrested? On "FOX 17 This Morning," we're talking about what happens when people licensed to carry are stopped at airport security checkpoints.
Right now, as it stands, if you're caught bringing your gun through airport security, you're arrested and charged with a misdemeanor. Security agents say that's the way it should be, especially after the shooting that killed a TSA agent at LAX in November.
But gun rights groups want state lawmakers to drop the part of the law where you're arrested.
