“Suspicious” Man Detained at LAX - WWII Enthusiast

Los Angeles Airport Police stopped a man at a checkpoint on suspicion that he was carrying a firearm. A video shows authorities investigating a white truck. Multiple weapons could be seen in the streets as the officers searched the vehicle. The man in question was detained.

It turns out that the man's firearms were replicas. He happened to be a World War II enthusiast. Several inert items were discovered. One turned out to be an old rifle replica.

Airport Police Department Officer Rob Pedregon said the police decided to search the truck after they say the man inside made suspicious statements.

The incident affected traffic at LAX for a couple of hours. The bomb squad was sent in to assist with the situation. It was, of course, a case of false alarm.

Authorities later announced that the area has been cleared.

The man was questioned but was not arrested after authorities have established neither he nor his objects of interest posed a threat to society. The man was released soon after the investigation at the scene.

True story…one day I was walking through an airport with a live but unloaded and declared historic era rifle. I’d been very careful to check all laws and regulations prior as well as notifying airline staff and security. Nobody I mean nobody cared at all. As I approached the secure area, I was carrying the rifle and immediately stopped. I aslexyhe Officer;”Is it the rifle?” No he said;”It’s the way we you’re drinking. It’s not allowed past here do to Security concerns.”

You just can’t make stuff this stupid up…

Meanwhile our airports are filled with islamic rapefugees as WWII vets get manhandled…
