A gun charge against Washington state Sen. Jeff Wilson has been dismissed by a Hong Kong court after he mistakenly carried a gun into the territory. Wilson, a Republican state senator, said it was an "honest mistake" and that he packed quickly without checking the contents of his briefcase. The gun was an unloaded revolver, and Wilson self-declared it at the airport. The court approved a bind-over order for Wilson, requiring him to keep the peace and avoid further firearms offenses for two years. He will be fined if he doesn't comply with the order. Wilson is now free to leave Hong Kong.
