More senior citizens caught with guns at DFW Airport

DALLAS — The recent uptick in senior citizens being arrested with firearms at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport could be linked to an increase in the number of older Texans successfully getting a concealed handgun license.

"I've noticed a trend lately [over] the last three or four months that there has been a large increase in seniors coming in saying, 'I need to learn to take care of myself,'" said David Prince, owner of Eagle Gun Range in Lewisville.

In July and August, DFW Airport police arrested 11 people for mistakenly leaving firearms in carry-on luggage, and almost half were seniors in their 60s and 70s.

All of them told investigators that they forgot a firearm was in a bag before placing it on the conveyor belt for Transportation Security Administration screeners.

Good on them for arming themselves.The only thing predators respond to is violence.

That memory thing is a bitch. I still can't find a Ruger GP100 I put in a "good" place downstairs.
