During the 10th anniverary of the September 11 terrorist attacks security at airports around the nation were on high alert. It’s safe to say you shouldn’t drive a truck with guns anywhere near one, especially on September 11th. Well a crew truck from the Discovery Channel show “Sons of Guns” did just that as a crew member of the show told airport police “I got a couple of guns,” as he was waiting outside for a co-worker. The bomb squad and canine units were quickly dispatched and a “automatic weapon” was found in the truck, which was parked in the general area where returning troops are usually greeted as they come back from deployment.
I’m sure the crew member meant no harm and was just being honest with police in case they randomly searched their crew truck, but come on. Driving a truck with a gun to the airport on September 11th? Just a note it was not the truck pictured above, but that’s the visual I had as I read the article on Mercury News. I also pondered what impractical gun they were building for the episode they were going to film. What ever it is I’m sure it’s “neva been dun befoe”.
