A Republic Airlines flight attendant was busted with a loaded gun in her bag at the Philadelphia airport, say police.   (Youtube)

(Newser) – You'd think a flight attendant would know better: Republic Airlines' Jaclyn Luby was rushing through security at the Philadelphia airport when a TSA guard spotted a loaded gun in her handbag. As a police officer examined it, it discharged. Luckily, no one was injured. Luby told authorities she had a permit to carry the .38 caliber Smith and Wesson Airweight revolver, but forgot that it was in her bag, reports the New York Daily News. She received a summary citation for disorderly conduct and was released. The cop who accidentally discharged the gun is on desk duty pending the results of an investigation into the incident.

This is why intelligent people hate the government. They hire anybody, mostly people that can't get real jobs, and make them lords over the rest of us. They are incompetent IDIOTS.
