Airport gun nuts blind rage By PHILIP MESSING Last Updated: 9:06 AM, May 4, 2013
A blind NRA member from New Mexico was busted at Newark Airport with a handgun in his checked luggage but the weapon was only discovered because he tried to get 10 bullets past the security screeners.
Raymond Whitehead, 53, was traveling with his two grown kids and his wife when TSA screeners spotted the hollow point ammo in his bag around 10 a.m. Tuesday at the American Airlines terminal.
Port Authority cops then found the .38 caliber Charter Arms revolver and seven illegal knives in his checked luggage, and he was arrested.
Whitehead claims police allowed him to bang into walls and denied him a lawyer or food for 10 hours. He is vowing to sue.

Well, it is one way to describe an armed unbalanced mental patient.
I am so sick of seeing these hoplophobic articles from the Mainstream Press. I really see this as the new civil rights issue of our times.
See how easy this is to do?
I'd no more trust a blind guy with a gun than I would letting him drive a car.........
IMO the last place I would go with a gun and bullets and illegal knives is to an airport.
Why didn’t he just go to FBI headquarters and turn himself in?.
This guy really is a nut, from the sound of it.
Well, the media were bound to find one, sooner or later. Although perhaps this reporter suffers from blindaphobia.
Honestly? I’d grill the hell out of the wife. Find out about the marriage, potential boyfriend, etc.
What better way to get your blind husband out of the way than to drop some ammo in a carry on, etc.?
Am I missing something .....where did the rage come in!!!!
There's no reason he couldn't be as good of a crack shot as the next guy....as long as his target made some noise.
I know but that doesn’t mean he’s a nut. It could be for his wife.
Plus the post has done this before. Anybody with a gun they immediately label a “nut” a word BTW they have yet to tag onto the Boston bombers.
Maybe locked in a room for ten hours, and being completely disoriented because he is blind and unfamiliar with the room.....I would be enraged too.
In his checked luggage?
I remember a story from years back in which a blind guy was stopped while driving, he had a kid with him who was telling him when to turn. I wonder if that would work when aiming a gun?
How could anyone be so unkind
To arrest a man for drivin’ while blind
The victim must immediately come out as a gay muslim abortionist simply carrying the tools of his trade, if only for the children.
He could very well be a better shot than both of us,
If I ever had to pick an opponent for a duel, he’d be my choice.......
“Mentally unhinged journalist supports abuse of the blind.”
Fair is fair.
