More On The US Airways Firearm Discharge

SayUncle has been following this closely and has more, plus photos.

Meanwhile, the Citizens Committee for the Right To Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) is calling for an independent investigation of the matter to prevent a cover-up.

"CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb said the incident is alarming because of allegations that the pilot may have been following strict Transportation Security Administration (TSA) rules when the mishap occurred. Those rules came under fire today from the Airline Pilots Security Alliance (APSA), which represents thousands of commercial airline pilots."

The intent is to make sure that TSA does not whitewash the incident and use the pilot as a scapegoat to preserve unsafe regulations.
