Loaded Gun Plus LAX Equals Bad Idea

Man pleads no contest to weapons charge

You just want to ask Phillip Joseph Dominguez: what were you thinking?

Dominguez pleaded no contest Friday to a misdemeanor weapons charge after authorities
found more than a dozen guns and 1,000 rounds of ammunition in his pickup truck when he was stopped at an LAX security checkpoint.

Dominguez was immediately sentenced to three years probation and 80 hours community service following his plea to having a concealed firearm in a vehicle, according to Jane Robison of the District Attorney's Office.

Ten other counts, including eight felony charges, were dismissed as a result of his plea.

Dominguez was driving a gray Chevrolet Silverado when he was stopped about 11 a.m. Jan. 9 at a security checkpoint at the airport. Police said they found the firearms in the bed of his truck during a routine check, including a loaded handgun, a loaded musket and two semi-automatic rifles.

Dominguez later told the Orange County Register that he was picking someone up at the airport that day and going to a shooting range.
