Don King, gun owner

Another example of an honest individual who makes a harmless mistake and gets in trouble with the law.

Cleveland - Boxing promoter Don King was stopped by security at Cleveland's Hopkins International Airport for having ammunition in his carry-on luggage.

Hopkins Airport spokeswoman Jacqueline Mayo says the 79-year-old King was stopped by members of the Transportation Safety Administration on Sunday night. She says King had ammunition for .38-caliber and .357-caliber firearms in his bag.

Mayo says the ammunition was taken and that King was released to continue his trip, she believes to Florida. She said she didn't know if King received a citation.

King didn't immediately return a telephone message seeking comment. . . .

Yeah, I was gonna say that I'm pretty sure that King was a prohibited person, which would make him prohibited from owning any ammunition as well.

Isn't King a convicted felon?

Don King is a convicted murderer. How can he own a gun?! Did he get a pardon?

Assume for the sake of argument the Don King is not under a firearms disability. What did they think he would do with the ammunition? Throw it at the flight attendants ?
