Michael Moore's Bodyguard Arrested on Airport Gun Charge

But I thought Moore was against guns?

Just one more example of the liberal elite thinking that laws only apply to the little people and not to them.


Police took Patrick Burke, who says Moore employs him, into custody after he declared he was carrying a firearm at a ticket counter. Burke is licensed to carry a firearm in Florida and California, but not in New York. Burke was taken to Queens central booking and could potentially be charged with a felony for the incident.

Moore's 2003 Oscar-winning film "Bowling for Columbine" criticizes what Moore calls America's "culture of fear" and its obsession with guns.

What an idiot. You don't just walk into the airport and say "yah here's my gun I need to take it with me." You have to contact the airport ahead of time, bring it into the airport UNLOADED, in a case and check it in with the airline.
