    I agree with Hugo Stiglitz. You can call it being a bigot but just like the meaning NIGGER Petey was being totally ignorant for doing that in the 1st place. The airports have been tight like a mutha fucka since 9/11 they won’t let you carry an open jar of hair grease in your carry on bag let alone a gun. a stolen one at that.

      c’mon fire…you done lost your mind if you don’t think that 1st comment isn’t racist…it’s PLURAL…


        Don’t play into HugoStiglitz comment,everybody.
        It takes someone with no life and pretty much brain dead to waste energy writing such a narrow minded comment.
        If you’re smart,don’t give a person like him the time of day.

        You know he’s checking in every 5 minutes to see how many people have replied to him because he has nothing else going on with him.

        HugoStiglitz is a failure being a failure.
