    Since there was no mention of this guys (or the others) valid FOID card or concealed carry permit, then I assume he (and they) had none. These people are not gun rights advocates or lawful gun enthusiasts but instead are in criminal possession of these guns. Most lawful gun owners are careful not to carry in a prohibited area and especially planes.
