Mesa Airlines pilot said he didn’t want to leave gun in his car at the Sunport. A Mesa Airlines pilot who was deadheading on another airline at the Albuquerque International Sunport early Friday was found to have a .357-caliber handgun in his carry-on luggage, Sunport spokesman Daniel Jiron told ABQjournal.com.The man told authorities he didn’t want to leave the gun in his car at an airport parking lot, Jiron told us.Jiron said he wouldn’t know the pilot’s name or the disposition of the case until an airport police report is available later today.

I wonder what was actually going through his head as he decided that it was a better idea to carry it in his personal carry-on luggage through security and onto a commercial flight rather than leave it in his car or make some other alternative arrangements!?

I have to wonder if he will get sacked for his actions… (I cant seem to find any further information on the story)
