What was a gun and clip doing in a previous trip? Was it just in the suitcase and in the trunk of a car? Lot of protection there, huh? Now that the information about a clip and 7 rounds has come to light, the decision to ban him from the ship for at least that cruise may be a wise one.
Also think of how easy it is to make a zip gun out of common parts. A tube, a nail, and a way of striking the bullet in the tube. No, you will not get rapid fire, but the consequences are still there.
Have to look at the bigger picture. Personally, if I had been traveling on that cruise and heard about this happening, I'd be a happy cruiser - hoping it made me safe.
