Haley caught with gun at airport

It appears former Governor Haley Barbour was detained at the Jackson municipal airport Earlier this month for possessing a firearm.  The Hattiesburg Patriot broke the story.  Airport officials told JJ that Mr. Barbour was "detained" and was not arrested.  JJ submitted a public records request for the incident report.

GO HALEY !!!!!!

I carry every day, everywhere I go, even church.

This is Jackson and the crime doesn't stop at the city limits.

I wish Haley would run again for Governor or even better: SENATOR !!!!

Senator Haley Barber sounds pretty damn good...doesn't it !!!!!!

My man Phil would have had a .44 Magnum...in a holster on his person.

The story says he was arrested and posted bail in time to catch his flight.

Let me guess the response from the airport poh-leese: "This incident report is part of an ongoing investigation and therefore cannot be released pursuant to your request for public records." or some other bullshit. Maybe Warren Strain can help them write it...

3:14, if your reference to 'the story' is the Hattiesburg Patriot, then my advice would be to look for a more reliable source. Garmon doesn't ever worry about details in his stories - in fact, he believes that Charles Johnson is a true journalist.

So Haley doesn't get arrested for carrying a gun to the airport, but my wife,mother and children are getting felt up by the "overly friendly" TSA to make sure we're not carrying Hello Kitty nail clippers and over 3 ozs of apple juice. My Goodness when is this world going to return to common sense?

Looks like the Butler Snow bots are present and accounted for.

Anonymous 3:14, the article post communications from TSA, which is the basis for the report. Garmon has posted numerous articles that are rock solid. If you can reference anything that has been posted on Hattiesburg Patriot that isn't accurate, feel free to back up your vacuous claims.

The offender always has a chance to post bond and continue on the flight , assuming it’s not missed.
Offender now will need to appear in court.

That's it 3:28, shoot the messenger. You sound like one of the empty sacks that populate the woeful C-L newsroom.

Guess he was carrying because of all those thugs he let out of jail when he left office. It's a dangerous world out there. He would be a good senator. Would match all the other idiots that are currently in Washington. But from what I hear, he already has a senate seat of sorts. Playing a little Weekend at Bernie's in Washington.

Donna Ladd is all over this one. But updating her readers now more than a day later about Wayne Parish after smearing him repeatedly in print and online? Nope.

This isn't uncommon at all. It's really a Non-Story.

There's a lesson here: get to the airport early.

GHB was there early enough to get arrested, post bond, and still make his scheduled flight. If you're early, you're on-time. If you're on-time, you're late.

Like Donner, the TV Newsers and all the thieves at the Clarion Ledger, Wagster Pettus reads JJ and the local independent media everyday looking for story ideas and research to steal. It is what liberals do.

JJ, you were given bad information. The story is not national via the AP. Barbour admitted to the arrest and will pay a fine.

I use to admire Mr Barbour too and thought that he'd make a fabulous senator, vice-president or president one day. That is until I began realizing how much damage he and his ilk have been doing to our country and State. Haley is a sign of the old pork barrel bloated bloviating career politicians and lobbyists that must be put out to pasture and away from any power and influence if we want to survive as a State and nation. To realize the true character of someone, give them power. Do we really want to hand him more power? My answer is absolutely not.

Anonymous said...

I'm just shocked the TSA even found the firearm. Haley has probably been flying for years with it without being caught.

Great. Another drunk redneck with a gun in a crowded airport. Just what we need.

Haley's got a gun,
Dum dum dum, Haley what have you done?
Dum dum dum, it's the sound of his gun
Dum dum dum, Haley what have you done?
Dum dum dum, it's the sound of his gun,
Haley's got a gun
Haley's got a gun
His whole world's come undone
From lookin' straight at the sun
What did his daddy do?
What skool'd he put you through?
They say when Haley was arrested
They found him without a brain
But man, he had it comin'
Now that Haley's got a gun
He ain't never gonna be the same
Haley's got a gun
Haley's got a gun
His dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
Tell me now it's untrue
What did his Daddy do?
What skool'd he put you through?

Look at it from Haley's perspective, after years of lobbing for Mexico for amnesty, he had made this country a very dangerous place

In 1998 Fortune Magazine, the BGR Group was named the 2nd most powerful lobbing firm in America... Barbour Griffith & Rogers

PS...there are some people who believe that Haley's other client, The Southern Company is going to eventually use lignite at the 7.6 billion Kemper Power Plant

Haley who?

Anonymous said...

The Kemper Mafia is real and they want their money back they gave to Haley! I'd carry a gun, too, if I did what Haley did.

His real crime is ripping of the U.S. taxpayers and Mississippians. The gun is a non issue.

3:12. If you carry “even in church” you obviously need to change churches!

What a difference a letter makes... said...

6:37, it is called "lobbying." "Lobbing" is a tennis term. Just so you know...

"If you carry “even in church” you obviously need to change churches!"

An example of deficient reasoning and scattered-logic by an undeveloped brain. Not many folks who have shot up churches have been members in good standing. That's a good reason to carry in church.

Yahoos, getting a gun legally through the airport is a no brainer. You just have to remember you have a gun.
It's likely that Haley has had someone else making his travel plans for so long that he doesn't know how to travel on his own and whoever made the plans is new and didn't get told Haley travels with a gun
The rich don't do things for themselves and they either forget how or haven't kept up with change.
The headline among Haley's peers is " he flew commercial? "

Anonymous said...

@4:00 - Seriously? Your wife, mother and kids get "felt up" every time they go to the airport? How often has this REALLY happened? Or is this just "fake comment" because you wanted to feel some righteous indignation? You should become a "journalist" for CL.

@8:10 AM

You beat me with a response to the stupid comment by 9:56 PM. If something were to ever happen at his church, assuming he attends church, he would probably be the first shouting "why weren't the Police here to protect us?" Craziness knows no boundaries and crazy people look for the easiest target where they think there will be the least resistance and very little chance that someone will be there with a weapon to defend themselves and others.

Anonymous said...

After 9-11 we were all begging to be felt up at the airport and were thanking all of the agents. We have short memories.

Anonymous said...

@9:56 I bet everyone involved in a whack job shooting up a church thought the same. Truth is just about all churches have armed men staged all over the place like the secret service. You may not notice them, but to the trained eye they are there and there to protect you.

Yeah, Billy Bob with a 9mm is going to protect me in church. Right. Love how our highly trained CCW Church Commandos are performing.

"FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
It's a place of worship that turned scary for some Pinelake Church members on Sunday morning. It's the last place some expected to hear gunfire.

"They were actually having service and were singing hymnals," said Flowood Police Detective Sgt. Billy Tucker. "Mr. (Joseph Edgar) Ray had a 9MM in his front right pocket. When they got through singing he went to sit down and the gun accidentally discharged."

Flowood police were called to the church at 8:05 am about an accidental shooting. Where Ray and his handgun were taken into custody. He was later released.

Ray has a conceal carry permit, according to Flowood police. The permit would allow him to carry a gun inside a church. However, Pinelake prohibits guns on its property.

Under state law, the church could pursue a trespassing charge if it chooses. That doesn't appear likely but Ray will still have to go to court.

"We (Flowood police) went with what we felt like was appropriate at the time, to set a precedent, said Sgt. Tucker. "It was discharging a firearm in the city limits. It goes back to safety. If you are toting a weapon you need to be safe with it. You need to have it properly secured."
Police say Ray did not have the gun in a holster.

In order to get the enhanced permit, he did have to undergo hours of training.
Investigators say Ray is a long time member of the church and was not part of the security staff.

"Nov 17, 2017 - Police in Tennessee say a man accidentally shot himself and his wife while showing off his gun in church. Tellico Plains Police Chief Russ Parks ... CBS News affiliate WVLT-TV reports the church was holding a pre-thanksgiving dinner when the shooting took place. Initial reports indicated two people had been discussing guns in church..." Doh.

Oh yeah all this "airport security" began after 9-11, which was a joint military exercise that went live. The Patriot Act was drafted in a matter of days and passed soon after, which suspended our 4th Amendment right against unreasonable search and seizure. And Congress has extended this stassi-like encroachment of our rights. And who has been holding the power all these years? Barbour and his lobbying firm.

Did you ever think we would be surveilled in the privacy of your own hom? Vault 7 NSA spying has transformed our country into what we used to fear when we learned about these types of practices in Communist USSR. albeit it was the 1980's but KGB turned each family member into informants on other family members.Do you really want to allow this madness to continue until our grandchildren feel the need to report that you criticized your government?

I'm a 5'2", 110lb old lady with a thick Southern drawl , white hair and blue eyes . I'm a card carrying member pf the NSDAR and married to a former Marine who is also directly descended from a hero of our Revolution. My passport shows I've never travelled to a non-western country. I have been approved to read classified material.
Yet, I've been " felt up " every third flight since 9/11 . Three of those times, my flight had Pakistanis, Saudis and women with hijabs on the flight who were not screened.
The computer companies know so much about me, they attempt tailor the news and ads to me which I resent as it assumes I'm a shallow and ignorant lemming . But, we can't eliminate me as a terrorist threat?
There are countless , relatively simple ways to eliminate threats without profiling anyone but we have to always go to extremes these days because the left and right extremists control our political dialogue and thus decision making.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
