Playboy Playmate Shanna Marie McLaughlin Busted for Gun at Orlando Airport


“Shanna Marie McLaughlin, a former Playboy Playmate and University of Central Florida graduate student, was arrested Monday evening at the Orlando International Airport when she tried to pass through a security checkpoint,” reports Go Knights! And is that graduate or student or graduate student? ‘Cause if she’s going for graduate degree, McLaughlin must be both sexy and smart. Or . . . not. “According to an arrest affidavit, McLaughlin placed her duffel bag into the X-ray machine and a Transportation Security Administration worker ‘saw what appeared to be a handgun on the screen.’ The affidavit said the worker discovered a Ruger SAA .45 long colt, loaded with hollow point bullets.” Ruger Vanquero? Blackhawk? Hello? Are you paying attention. In her defense, McLaughlin  . . .

” . . . spontaneously stated the gun was her boyfriend’s, and she did not know it was in there.” She also told the worker that she has a concealed weapons permit, which he verified, the report stated.

So they didn’t haul her off somewhere and whip the information out of her? As if. And in case you think I’m being sexist (after not being racist in the last post), know this: “Police arrested McLaughlin and charged her with a misdemeanor — carrying a firearm in a place prohibited by law.”

I wonder why the TSA gave her a free ride. After all, their endlessly condescending blog specifically states that “in case you’re wondering, the ‘I didn’t know it was in the bag’ excuse works just about as well at the checkpoint as ‘The dog ate my homework’ worked with your high school teacher.”

As far as I can tell, the TSA does not have the power of arrest. For that they speed dial the local, state or federal agents ready to do their bidding (i.e. all of them). But they can fine and do fine passengers for carrying a weapon into their territory, up to $10,000. But not in this case. Obviously. Oops, I did it again. Or did I?

    That doesn’t look like concealed carry to me.

    1. avatar Gossven says:

      Maybe she has one of those ridiculous bra mounted holsters, she could conceal a desert eagle with those things.

      1. avatar MALTHUS says:

        I can see why her brain is not getting any nourishment…

  2. avatar fullmetaltrousers says:

    Sorry, what?

  3. avatar Severe says:

    I’m thinking RF had a good time finding a SFW picture. 😀

  4. avatar Jusuchin (Military Otaku) says:

    Oh right, responding.

    Eh, if she knew it was there, she would’ve declared it…although being stuffed into a duffel would count as a safe way of transporting it. It also has to be unloa…

    Oh right, it has to be unloaded.

    … can’t talk, picture…sush…

  5. avatar Coyote Gray says:

    I’ll be honest. If you want me to read articles with pictures like this, move the print so that it hugs the body of the young lady in the photo.

    I really can’t gather myself together enough to read what you penned, with the photo above.

    Oh. I see what you did there.

    Something’s making my brain run all cooky…

  7. avatar Nick Leghorn says:

    My favorite part was that she has a CCW.

  8. avatar ready,fire,aim says:

    what was the question again??………

  9. avatar Cotton says:

    UCF graduate? Great, I picked the perfect time to transfer.

    1. avatar poppymann says:

      The chicks never looked like that when I wsent to UCF. BTW does she have a ribcage or is that a total photoshop fail?

  10. avatar Ralph says:

    I can’t believe it. The TSA is doing full body cavity searches on six-year old boys, and this awesome babe didn’t even get a patdown. Does the TSA recruit its agents from NAMBLA?

  11. avatar TTACer says:

    I assume after a body scan and a pat down the TSA agents called it even.

  12. avatar Patrick B. says:

    RF – you are going to give mikebunchofnumbers a heart attack….

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      We hope.

      1. avatar mikeb302000 says:

        Nah, no heart attack. But when I saw this story this morning I knew either Robert or Brad would be on it with a photo of course.

        And I knew the rest of you adolescents would be whooping it up too.

        1. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

          Yes, I have a penis.

  13. avatar Sid says:

    If they have their stuff together, then the NRA will both provide her with legal representation and tuition. She is the poster girl for……… whatever you want her to be.

  14. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

    She looks good, but believe me, she is lazy in the sack…It could happen! No, I would be glad to look deeply into her case, after I examine the body of evidence. Am I digging myself into a hole?

    1. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

      Tell her boobs to quit staring at my eyes!

      1. avatar Gossven says:

        Careful, She has a pair of 38s and a gun.

        1. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

          HA HA!

        2. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

          I checked out her er other photos-gravity is already seeping in on her…

        3. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

          The poor girl needs my support…

  15. avatar Aaron says:

    Is it really that difficult to separate one’s range bags from their vacation luggage?
    And how many brain cells to give your outbound baggage that extra bit of scrutiny before you head to the airport? Sheesh….

  16. avatar John D says:

    Ok- so you were going to avoid politics on your website, which of course proved impossible to do. I would assume you intended to avoid sex which has proved im- oh, never mind….
    Nice Guns!

  17. avatar Aaron says:

    Ah… TTAG… “I only read it for the articles.”

  18. avatar stateisevil says:

    She shouldn’t be convicted. Fl statutes say CWFLs must “knowfully and willfully” carry a firearm into a “prohibited place”.

  19. avatar JOE MATAFOME says:

    How could they pick on this poor girl for carrying a lil ole 45 when she has those mighty fine 50’s ready for action. I know why our whiney ass TROLL hasn’t responded to this fine photo yet, he must have hit his head when he fell our of his chair.

  20. avatar Tim says:

    the saddest part of the story, sorry took a while to read it, was that she has a boyfriend. Dang it!

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      “she has a boyfriend.”

      Most of the men on this site are equally as disappointed. Some of the women, too. 🙂

      1. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

        In honor of Shanna, I just put Sheri’s bra on my head and pronounced myself as Captain Boobyman…Sheri failed to see the humor.

  21. avatar G.R. Mead says:

    “Yes, Officer?”

    Male officer: “Um…. Ma’am, Um …. your um bag>.. ummmmmmm…..”

    “Yes, Officer?”

    “Um, … I’m sorry, ma’am I Ummmm….. ”

    “Yes, Officer?”

    “Uh, Yeah, right, Uh, ….. oh yeah … ma’am … uh, is that a gun?”

    “Yes, Officer, I’m sorry I did not know that was in there. I do have a permit.”

    “Uhhh…. yeah.. well, uh you know…. we can’t let that uhhh, through ,,, um … you know …?”

    “Yes, Officer.”

    “ummmmm .. oh, yeah , right … about that uuhhh, gun, could you, like, maybe ummm …. ummm….. uhhhh….”

    “Yes, Officer?”

    “Oh the gun, … yeah the gun — yeah, … uhhh, you’ll need to take that back ummm over there, just umm don’t uuhhhh walk too fast , you know… ummmmm.”


    Female Officer, arriving: “Miss, that is prohibited here. I am citing you — here is your appearance date. Immediately remove the item from the area.

    Male Officer: …oh. Yeah. Ummm… Immediately.

    In my best Beavis in Butthead voice,,,,”he said long Colt…”

    1. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

      Ha ahahaha…cool!

  23. avatar WO3 says:

    Ruger?…….Vaquero?…….Bisley?……..Blackhawk?……..definitely not a “Flattop”!

  24. avatar Rebecca says:

    Silly boys, put your tongues back in your mouths. You’re attractin’ flies.

    1. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

      That wasn’t my tongue…

      1. avatar poppymann says:

        Ba dum dum!

  25. avatar Buuurr says:

    Maybe if she had Megan Fox’s head. Just not into the strawheads… nice boobs though. Props to that!

    1. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

      The Headless Whoreman!

    So Playmates date men with Ruger single-actions? My luck is turning around!
