Jerry -- Toteboardin', Gun Totin'

7/29/2008 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hey lady-- you can't do that at the airport! Perpetually disheveled "comedian" Jerry Lewis got stopped Friday in the Vegas airport for having an unloaded gun in his carry-on.

Cops tell us he was walking through security when TSA officials spotted the gun in his bag. Jerry told cops -- can you guess -- that he didn't know the gat was there, adding that Jerry's kids other "members of his family" had been using the bag.

The 82-year-old was cited for carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and released.

Lewis' manager tells us it was a "fun gun" -- essentially a show prop -- and he did not know it was in his bag. Sure Jer, they all say that.

There is such a mystery surrounding why Jerry Lewis is so absolutely dedicated to doing the muscular dystrophy telethon every year....even despite his poor health, for what it seems like the last 100 years .. well, for as long as I can remember. It seems like he has some secret reason for doing it.. I mean why the total dedication EVERY year? I love watching the telethon... He will be really missed when he passes away.

Shame on you TMZ. Using the term "Jerry's Kids" to make a joke is unacceptable. My son has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and you insult him and everyone else who is suffering from this deadly disease...

Ah yes - let's all rag on the old guy. Never mind that he's done more good than anyone of the so-called raggedy TMZ reporters who dig up the filth - or even all of you put together. The man has done so much good for kids afflicted with muscular maladies in his lifetime and one thing goes wrong and you're there to slam him.

Here's a thought - he most likely doesn't pack his own suitcase. He has a wife not to mention other people to help him coordinate his very busy schedule, and yes - pack his bags. Did you ever think he might be telling the truth?

Good luck to you when you're 82 - if you make it.

To Momwhocares - I care too. Many of my students have the disease and I can feel your pain as I see the progression. Stay strong Mom and don't let the idiots and slugs of the world cause you further grief.

Remember this site was creaated by a lawyer and he gets big bucks for it. Just another reason lawyers have such a bad reputation. He just adds his garbage to the already festering pile.

Using the term "Jerry's Kids" as a joke in your story TMZ, was way out of line. Cheap shot at disabled children. How shameful. My son also has Duchenne MD and I think you owe all children who suffer from this an apology.
It was a down right nasty comment. I guess it's easy to pick on children that can't defend themselves.
I'm disappointed in TMZ. :(

MS is multiple sclerosis.
Jerrys work has been for MD (muscular dystrophy)

Give the old guy a break. Jerry Lewis made some pretty hilarious movies back in his day and raised a hell of a lot of money for Muscular Dystrophy. He's been sorely underappreciated in his home country and deserves everybody's respect for his dedication to his chosen cause. We love you, Jerry!

For those of you who are expecting an apology from TMZ for joking about Jerry's kids, DREAM ON.

You'll see pigs fly out of a unicorn's butt before you'll see that.
