They took Buzz Lightyear's arm completely because of the deadly laser cannon it contained.

Wait until they find out about the snake in his boot.

Is it so wrong to want an airplane to reach for the sky?

Once Great Britain.

Again?  Didn't something similar happen not too long ago?

A spokesperson for the Department For Transport said: 'We do not comment on specific incidents or details of our security regime.
'Airports and airlines can use their discretion to remove any item being carried in hand luggage when they believe it may be perceived as a threat.'


Yes, we know, everyone gets the policy by now.  The point is that you're an idiot for thinking anyone would perceive this as a threat.

A lot of people are fond of starting online petitions for stupid shiat. When will they try one for getting rid of the security theatre?
 
2014-02-11 12:24:15 PM
Heard about this on Reddit. The idiocy burns bright for the ones confiscating the gun.

I would have taken it too. I mean, have you ever seen Woody packing heat? Nope, no gun. So obviously something was up.
 
2014-02-11 12:26:16 PM
They were right to take it. Woody doesn't have a gun.

Stinky Pete expressed his relief that the threat was removed and says he  feels safer knowing that threats like Woody are being dealt with.
 
2014-02-11 12:27:25 PM
I'm calling shenanigans. Anyone who has watched Toy Story knows Woody doesn't carry a gun
 
2014-02-11 12:27:30 PM
Man America sucks. Maybe i should move to europe or england.

He does have a holster...
 
2014-02-11 12:28:25 PM
Given that this is the Daily Fail, I'm no longer sure there was ever a movie called Toy Story.
 
2014-02-11 12:28:52 PM
He's no longer mint condition. I mean, he really wasn't since Little Bo Peep got her hook on him but most collectors don't look there. Best he can hope for now is to get nailed to a wall at Applebees.

Gah! You're prying my gun from my cold, dead hand!
 
2014-02-11 12:30:25 PM
You can never be too safe.

/ and, you are in The Blighter
// surprised they weren't jailed
 
2014-02-11 12:30:51 PM
Good thing they didn't search his bag....img.fark.net
 
2014-02-11 12:31:57 PM
I don't know what I'm more disgusted about. The fact that a tiny toy gun was confiscated or that the quoted Reddit users for content.
 
2014-02-11 12:32:02 PM
Perfectly reasonable. Choking hazard.

Ever tried landing a plane while choking on a toy gun? Yeah, exactly.
 
2014-02-11 12:33:05 PM
Why did they arrest Justin Case but not June Bug, Nosmo King and Nopar King?

/too obscure?

That's for a match so Woody can start fires.

vudukungfu: TO IDIOCRACY! AND BEYOND!!!


*snort*

I mean, my only hope is that this is some full size toy gun.


/otherwise, I can hope that lek others mentioned, this is the Daily Fail and that this never happened. Otherwise I can see Heathrow suing them or something.
 
2014-02-11 12:37:10 PM
Common sense gun restrictions!!
 
2014-02-11 12:38:00 PM
Could be worse. Woody could have been smuggling donkey penis.
 
2014-02-11 12:38:26 PM
If we just put miniature guns on all of our toys, this wouldn't be a problem.
 
2014-02-11 12:38:39 PM
It's like they gave 6-year-olds jobs.
 
2014-02-11 12:40:01 PM
Just be glad he didn't bring the toy into JFK, Atlanta, etc. They probably have a gun to the kid's head and arrest them all.
 
2014-02-11 12:41:29 PM
They should be more worried about the baggage retrieval system.

Came here to say this.

stupid is, stupid does

As someone has already mentioned, Woody doesn't have a gun; he does have a holster.  My two year old loves Toy Story and I have bought two of the full size Woody dolls (the first one was broken by the fore-mentioned two year old).  Neither doll came with a gun.  I am wondering where that gun actually came from.  Perhaps it was a real threat and the glorious airport officials actually prevented a hijacking.

just south of Waco, the republic of Texas, God's country!

/yeehaw!

You're my favorite rent a cop!
 
2014-02-11 12:45:26 PM
A toy gun may be one thing, but a teeny tiny little plastic obviously not a real weapon in the largest stretch of any imagination toy gun?

That's not "being thorough". That's just plain being an asshole.

You know else confiscated toys in the name of "security"?

Infobahn: Yup


I think this is pretty common.  My dad had a keychain taken away at an airport.  Something basically like this:

Except sometimes you can actually reason with a 6-year-old.

One of my original Woody toys came with a gun. Just like my original Buzz came with the giant firecracker rocket on its back. Since then, I lost the toy. Its been over 15 years.

Woody's got a gun
His dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run

Came for this, leaving happy!

/ No idea why, but that's my favorite line from the movie.

CSB:

Back when this movie wasn't quite so long in the tooth, my kid wanted to go to school Halloween time in a Toy Story Woody the Cowboy costume. Obviously a toy gun was out. So I made a giant fake strike-anywhere match from a large balsa stick by repeated dipping in red wax, followed by a shallow dip in white for the striker. And put that in the holster (Like Sid did in the movie)


Bet the TSA would have a problem with that too.

/unless said giant match was bought in one of the stores past the checkpoint.

I find it funny because my wife accidentally carried a pocket knife through there. She later had it confiscated at the London Eye.
 
2014-02-11 12:56:51 PM
One of the most massive empires ever established. Crushed entire ethnic groups out of existence, enslaved millions, killed tens of millions. Now terrified of a miniature toy gun.
 
2014-02-11 12:58:36 PM
AGAIN? didnt the same shiat happen a few months ago at an american air port
