Cleveland police find gun, knife on Poland man at airport

Published: Wed, March 21, 2012 @ 10:01 a.m.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Authorities say a loaded handgun and knife were found in a carry-on laptop case at a Cleveland Hopkins International Airport security checkpoint.

Police say 60-year-old Richard Buxman of Poland was charged Monday with carrying a concealed weapon. He was released on $1,000 bail and faces a Friday common pleas court hearing.

A Cleveland police officer says he found a loaded 9mm handgun, two loaded clips, a folding knife and a loose bullet in the case after a transportation officer saw the gun and knife on an X-ray.

Police say the wife, “in a distressed state,” told an officer she had packed the bag and that both had forgotten the weapons were inside.

A phone message seeking comment was left this morning at Buxman’s home.

He was on his final approach. This gives airport terminal a whole new meaning.

@marierned well said. This is a well educated man and as you said would not bring a loaded weapon on a commercial plane. Easily can happen. Lets not make a big deal about this people.

Dementia, perhaps?

Anyone who doesn't know exactly where their loaded weapons are at any given point in time is not responsible enough to be allowed to have them. I love these people who pretend that handguns are just a toy for their amusement, and evidently leave them all over the place.

You're right, Mariened, no one with any intelligence would intentionally do this. But, there are a fair number of unintelligent who wouldn't realize their irresponsibility.

So it is ok to allow Dr. Baxman to forget "something" while tending to patients in the er? Seriously, his wife didn't feel the gun and clips whilst packing the bag ? So its possible the gun wad overlooked before and carried into the hospital? Should a trauma doctor be that forgetful? Let's hope not.
