    Why I like living in a small red city, in a Red State...

    Lewiston Tribune, 12-5-15
    LEWISTON, ID - A local Transportation Security Administration agent found a firearm while routine checks of passengers and baggage were taking place at the Lewiston-Nez Perce County Regional Airport this morning. According to a press release from Airport Manager Chris Hayes, at about 11:20 a.m., the firearm was discovered during an x-ray screening at the passenger screening checkpoint.

    Under standard operating procedures, the Lewiston Police Department was
    notified and they ...responded to the airport to assist TSA.

    "After a brief investigation, the individual was allowed to remove the firearm
    from the premises. LPD did not issue a citation, the individual was rescreened
    and allowed to board the plane. During the event, screening was stopped and
    wasn’t allowed to resume until the incident was resolved. Even with the inter-
    ruption, no flights were delayed," Hayes says.

    Seeing that we could all use some good news gun stories about now,
    Does anyone want to add their own "seems like back in time" story(ies))

    I'm not looking for,"...and then the 80 year old granny shot the burglar dead" stories.

    I am looking for current tales of stories of the good old fashioned "American guns are normal, not scary", mindset that still exists today in pockets of an America that was.

    Then there is Cody Wyoming, where I used to live... it's like walking into the 1950's there. Yet one time at the airport, some guy was going on a plane with a few toys (for his niece and nephew) that had blinking LEDs. The TSA grilled him, shut down the airport, shut down the highway in front of the airport, brought in every law enforcement agency they could, and even flew in a complete bomb squad with all their paraphernalia on a special flight from Cheyenne, all the way across the state. They finally let him go but I don't know if he got to take his toys. I wrote this letter to the local paper:
