Man Shoots Self at Port Authority Bus Station

(New York City)
A man carrying a sawed-off shotgun inside a gym bag accidentally shot himself in the leg at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, authorities said.

The 35-year-old Worcester, Massachusetts, man was waiting in line to board a bus at about 6 a.m. Saturday when his foot tapped his gym bag, triggering the weapon, said Port Authority spokesman Joseph Pentangelo.
The injury was not life threatening. It's not known why he was carrying a loaded sawed-off shotgun in his gym bag.

Back in the mid 90s I brought a 12ga. Shotgon home on a bus.
But it was unloaded, barrel removed andtaped to the side of the stock and wrapped in brown shipping paper.

Everyone wanted to know what it wax?
I told them it was an X-Rated lamp that I was fixing for a friend.

They didn't force the issue and they had no idea what I was really carring.
