He didn't deliberately lie, but saying "I forgot where I left my gun" doesn't really make him look much more reliable.

It amazes me how many people get stopped at airports with guns and say that they forgot were the gun was or that they had it with them. If someone habitually forgets the whereabouts of their weapon, or is so casual about their weapons, they shouldn't be allowed to have them. it is all about personal responsibility, remember?

"He had forgotten he had stowed his handgun in the center console days earlier". Really?? Forgotten?? And this guy has a conceal and carry permit?? I don't think he should have a gun at all if he can't even remember where he placed it.

The point of this (LA Times) story is that Canadian gun laws are much stricter then the US. Unfortunately, the laws concerning bringing a firearm into the US are just as strict as Canada's. If this had been the other way around, a Canadian accidentally bringing a firearm into the US, he would also be charged, gun confiscated and he would be subject to jail and fines. I'd like to think the US would be gentler in its approach - but not in our current militarized state.

"If a Canadian accidentally brought a gun into the US"? They can't bring what they don't have. If they have one (handgun), it is contraband, illegal to own or have in their possession.
