CO: State Representative Accidentally Brings Gun to Airport

Most "guns at airports" are this sort of incident. Busy people, when they carry every day, can make a mistake about the location of a gun. It often occurs because of a distraction. At a critical point of decision, something happens to distract the person, and they pass the decision point without doing what was intended.

Corporon told reporters Wednesday that Saine simply forgot that the gun was in her bag.

“This was clearly an accident. She said it was an accident. She asked if she could put it in her luggage and instead was promptly arrested, put in handcuffs and marched off to a holding cell. … I don’t know why it says ‘knowingly’ in the affidavit. That’s crazy,” Corporon said.

Saine was elected in 2012 and represents a largely rural, agricultural area about 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Denver that’s seen intense oil and gas activity and growing residential development.
