Stupid would be a compliment for this guy. Or was he just testing their security?

How dumb do you have to be to bring a loaded gun to an airport.. did he WANT to get arrested? Cause that's defiantly a way to do it.

If he's from St. Louis, then I understand why he got caught with a Roscoe on him. You gotta be strapped wherever you go, down there....

They hassle you about shampoo and you try to bring a gun with you? You should get your jail time doubled for pure stupidity.

Bad reporting TMZ. You said he was an ex-NBA'er and then I find out he played for the Clippers. You guys need to dig deeper in your research next time.

Let me guess... his friend was having a difficult time, so he took his gun from him and hid it in his luggage and forgot it was there... [I think that one has already be used] try this one... you thought your house was being burglarized so you grabbed your gun... but when you discovered it was your girlfriend you threw it in your luggage because you didn't want to frighten her... that should work. That and one of those celebrity attorneys

Stupidity taken to a whole new level. Seriously, I understand that the concept of "critical thinking skills" is beyond some people's comprehension -- but you'd think two brain cells out of billions would get together and raise a red flag. Unbelievable.

Rich, minority, celebrity. He walks. At worst, maybe he pleads to a misdemeanor and his lawyer pays the fine for him out of petty cash. Jus*****ch.

For all of you that are calling him stupid, thug and all of this other crap this happens to people that carry handguns everyday. When people carry them everyday they often forget that they have them on them. This even happened to Robert Deniro years back, and I don't think most of you consider him a thug or uneducated.

As long as the gun is properly registered the most he will get is a fine and probation.
