Congressman John Hostettler of Indiana deserves your vote and a place on my list of honor. The Republican Congressman from southwestern Indiana was detained at an airport for carrying a handgun in his luggage.
"Apparently the congressman had left a handgun in his briefcase and forgot it was in there and took it to the security checkpoint, where it was detected and they detained him briefly to make sure he had no ill intent as they should do," Jahr said.Thats too bad I always like to hear what others are carrying. I'm going to make a point of finding out what he was carrying this week and will announce it when I find out.
Jahr said Hostettler is an avid sportsman and has a permit for the weapon, but he was not sure what type of handgun the congressman had and whether it was loaded.
