Luke Burbank would rather fly with guns than babieson July 11, 2013 @ 7:05 pm (Updated: 8:59 pm - 7/11/13 )
His comments come in response to the news this week TSA agents intercepted two handguns within a four-hour period Wednesday morning, U.S. Homeland Security reported.
The first gun was found at about 5:20 a.m. in the carry-on bag of a man heading for San Francisco.
The second was a loaded handgun in the baggage of a man flying to Chicago.
TSA has now intercepted 24 guns at Sea-Tac so far in 2013.
But Burbank, who often calls for stricter gun laws, says he's actually not all that worried about someone bringing a gun on a plane.
"I don't assume any bad intent from these people who had these guns. I think these were just gun owners who probably had concealed carry permits," he speculates.
"You're not going to be able to take a plane down with a loaded gun," he says. "You might kill a person or two but we're going to take you down."
