Quote:Man pulls out unloaded gun, causes panic at LAX

LOS ANGELES (AP) - An arriving passenger has been arrested on suspicion of brandishing a weapon in the baggage claim area of Los Angeles International Airport's Terminal 3, causing momentary panic before authorities determined his handgun was unloaded.

~~~~~~~~~~snip~~~~~~~~~~

Airport police Sgt. Karla Ortiz said the man either took out the gun or a gun carrying case around 9 p.m. Friday. At least one witness who saw the act notified authorities and the bomb squad was called in to search his bag.

The man had declared his weapon and cleared security before getting on his flight to LAX. Ortiz said his offense was showing off a weapon in a public area.

Just reading what you posted, it sounds like he could gave been switching his gun from suitcase to carry on bag or something, or even just checking that it hadn't been stolen, and some idiot freaked out.

"Or a gun carrying case" doesn't seem too moronic, but it's certainly possible.
