Passenger finds loaded gun and former British PM’s passport in plane toilet

A passenger found a loaded pistol and David Cameron’s passport in an airplane toilet after the former British PM’s bodyguard forgot them there. Cameron was on his way back from New York to London with a protection officer from Britain’s Metropolitan Police. Several travelers objected and had the weapon removed before take-off. The Metropolitan Police launched an internal investigation.

It was pure luck that that evil, black, menacing unattended gun did not just go around shooting people

If I had been the passenger to find that gun, I would've walked up to the flight attendant, flexed my biceps and said these weren't the only awesome guns in the bathroom.

Secure your weapon. The close protection guy who forgot that must be getting a thrashing.

Yeah never set your gun down when you take a shit. Leave it in the holster. Amazing.

Funny how in Britain the gun laws are so strict and this clown gets a CC permit for basically free. How far have the giants fallen.

So it's okay for your bodyguards to have guns for your protection but your citizens who can't afford bodyguards are left defenseless. Gun laws are a joke.

Wait, there are people allowed to take loaded guns on planes!? I thought the whole reason they're so strict about not letting weapons into passenger areas was to prevent some idiot from piercing the fuselage and killing everyone onboard.
