A Pennsylvania man is facing 25 years in prison after trying to pass through a security checkpoint at JFK Airport with a loaded handgun and brass knuckles. Even worse: Authorities say 55-year-old Richard Forti hid the gun in the pocket of a vest he placed in a tray and sent through the X-ray machine. At least the guy who hid cocaine in goat meat earlier this month was trying to keep airport officials on their toes.
