Surely the facts are not in dispute.

Provided, of course, we know all the facts.

David Huckabee, a son of Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, was arrested at an Arkansas airport Thursday after a federal X-ray technician detected a loaded Glock pistol in his carry-on luggage.
“I removed the bag and asked Mr. Huckabee if he knew what he had in the bag,” Little Rock police officer Arthur Nugent wrote in a report after he was summoned to a security checkpoint. “He replied he did now.”

“Now” he says? He doesn’t remember packing a loaded gun?!?!!

“Huckabee, 26, later pleaded guilty in Little Rock District Court after being charged with a misdemeanor count of possessing a weapon in a prohibited place.
District Judge Lee Munson gave Huckabee a one-year suspended jail sentence and ordered him into 10 days of community service — which Huckabee can avoid by paying $100. Huckabee will be on probation for a year. Fines and costs totaled $855.
The son of the former Arkansas governor holds a concealed weapons permit. The elder Huckabee, who said last week that Virginia Tech gunman Cho Seung-Hui perhaps could have been stopped if a teacher or student had also been armed, also has a concealed weapons permit.”

Aha, so that’s it! He was packing heat in anticipation of another Cho Seung-Hui, but forgot he was doing so.

Ladies and getlemen of the jury — who among us hasn’t forgotten we packed something when going on a trip?
An article of clothing?A pack of gum? A loaded Glock?

I ask you ladies and gentlemen — is this the face of “spree killer”?

Well, what if it is?

“Neither the former governor nor David Huckabee returned telephone messages seeking comment.”

Shockaroonies!

“Nugent said David Huckabee had a .40-caliber Glock pistol in his black carry-on bag. Eight live rounds were in the gun — none in the chamber — and a nine-round clip was also in the bag. The weapon and ammunition were detained by Little Rock police while David Huckabee’s gun permit was seized and given to the Arkansas State Police.”

All together now!
