According to MercuryNews.com, a rental truck being used by the crew from Sons of Guns to transport machine guns and pyrotechnics was parked in front of the Dallas – Fort Worth Airport. When asked what the truck was carrying, the driver reportedly mentioned “I got a couple of guns.” Things went steadily downhill from there…
Airport spokesman David Magana says a bomb squad and canine units were deployed when an automatic weapon was found in the truck, parked in an area where troops returning from Middle East stints are greeted.
Other reports indicate that the driver had left the truck unattended. At an airport. With machine guns and bomb-like material inside. While he went inside for something.
A few weeks back I started talking to the Marketing people at Discovery Channel about interviewing Will or one of the other members of the crew for TTAG. Their initial reaction was something along the lines of “that’s great, we can set that up for you!”
Then they saw RF’s less than flattering posts about weapons handling and safety on the show, and I haven’t heard a peep from them since. Their seeming aversion to talk to people even slightly critical of the show makes this next line from the article completely unsurprising.
A Discovery Channel spokesman was not immediately available to comment.
And you wonder why the internet is making fun of them…
