"Warrants have been issued for a man who fled after a gun discharged during a search of his luggage at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport,causing panicked travelers to flee and briefly halting departures Saturday afternoon, officials said.

The officer told the passenger not to touch the bag, but "as he opened the compartment containing the prohibited item, the passenger lunged into the bag and grabbed a firearm, at which point it discharged," the TSA said in a written statement."

where is the data on "criminals don't care about gun laws"?

If a law makes it more difficult to get a gun, seems that a criminal would care.

If a law requires more prison time for using a gun during a crime, seems that a criminal would care.

If the law means a homeowner might have a gun, seems that a criminal would care.

so why do you make a statement like that?

Crime continues to happen, the logical conclusion is that criminals are choosing to disregard the law. Gun laws don't work.

And how dumb can you be to think that the metal detector won't find the gun in your carry on bag? You really can't fix stupid.
