Vlad_the_Inaner: Bet the TSA would have a problem with that too.

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


By extension I include the Heathrow analog to TSA in my statement, even though they are in the UK

Publikwerks: I would have taken it too. I mean, have you ever seen Woody packing heat? Nope, no gun. So obviously something was up.


JimBob1015: They were right to take it. Woody doesn't have a gun.


buster_v: I'm calling shenanigans. Anyone who has watched Toy Story knows Woody doesn't carry a gun

And if he did have a gun, it wouldn't be a double-action breaktop. I'm beginning to think that's not even Woody.

Since the terrorist won, I think I better report to the local mosque and sign up. These farking Westerners don't have a chance of surviving.

Back in 2002, my daughter was carrying her American Girl doll thru security in Munich. The doll had a backpack. And in that backpack was a miniature first aid kit. And inside that miniature first aid kit was a roll of gauze and tiny scissors.

Yep, the tiny scissors. Gone forever.

/she was a good sport about it

This is a working firearm (2mm pinfire). So they're not completely unhinged, just sort of ridiculous with this stuff.

Well, there is a place for you in our mosque.  It's a position specially made for folks whose opinions of Westerners is less than favorable.  You need only complete a one-time task, and you receive 72 pure females with whom you may do whatever you please.  And you and your family will be hailed as heroes in your name.  Now, let's try on your new jacket.  At this point it's best not to ask why it's heavy and has buttons.

Ten things that might be guns.

1. Cellphones
2. Umbrellas
3. Lady's Compacts
4. Ipods
5. Laptops
6. Shoes
7. Pens
8. Laser pointers
9. Model guns
10. Plush animals

One thing that is definitely not a gun:

1. A plastic toy gun smaller than a pound coin.

Oh, and let's not forget the previous thread:  donkey penises. There's lots of room to hide a gun in a donkey penis. Hell, in beef jerky sticks.

Hey, we don't write the rules, we just enforce them. I have worked for the TSA and I can tell you these procedures are not only fair but they are fairly enforced. We had buckets of the stuff in storage resulting from seizures from children. That toy gun may not look like much under casual observation but if someone had pulled it on you on an airplane? Even a child? That can easily be a scenario we have to anticipate. Believe me, taking away the kids toys in front of Dad or Gramps? Not fun, this is why we have garbage cans everywhere in the line, most times we have to throw away children's toys for them.

Except that 2mm pinfire guns don't have enough power to break skin.  I mean you could shoot the damn thing pointblank into someones eye, and it might not even blind them.

After a quick GIS, here are some more items that you carry that might conceal a gun:

compass
pocket watch
crucifix
Swiss Army type knife
a smoking pipe
a flask
a sundial
a knife

Someone having absolutely no common sense and being scared of anything that even resembles a gun no matter how benign or small?  Yes.  This has happened far too many times in the recent past.

You're right. If someone, even a child, pulled that toy gun on me while the plane was in flight I'd be in danger of pissing myself from laughing so hard and the perp would be in danger of having the gun, the doll and his head rammed up his a$$.

Where in the rules does it say that a shirt with a picture of a gun on it is a violation?  How about a book with pictures of airplanes?  Your colleagues have had people arrested for trying to take both of these through security.

What about when y'all confiscated a pregnant woman's insulin?  Where is that in the rules?

"Just following orders" is a lame excuse, but it's pretty clear to the public that most TSOs are actually just making up the rules as they go along.

Security at Heathrow is worse than any airport I've been through. Same security theater, but takes far longer and much less efficient.

I think the best was probably Munich.

Either:
A) You are a troll. In which case, kudos are in order, 8/10
B) You and your TSA kin are common sense retards, and should promptly sterilize yourselves.

Woody never came with a gun.

My kid has had 10 of them, all different types, they all had a holster, but no gun.  Just like the movie.

If I were going to hide a gun, I'd hide it inside of another gun, because nobody would ever think to look for a gun there.

Just like the police, Even the good TSOs don't correct their fellow officers when they're being assholes. In fact, they go to extremes to cover for them. Who's policing the policers if they don't police themselves? Somebody in that mass of blueshirts should recognize the assholery being inflicted on the citizenry and say something. They hire shovel attendants and don't supervise them, but expect them the citizens to obey them, no matter how asinine it gets.

I dunno, I've been through Heathrow a number of times and I thought it was always efficient.  They have someone visually inspecting your bag of "liquids" and they don't buy into the shoe bomb hysteria and specifically tell you (americans) to leave your shoes on.  I was wanded my first time through because my belt set off the metal detector (it goes through just fine in the states...).  My bad and the agent joked with me for the 30 second scan.  I have no love for the TSA retards we employ and try to veil my contempt as I pass through security.

I see this has been covered.  As a matter of fact, that gun in the TSA's hand (which he is idiotically aiming at his face) looks almost 100% like that one.  If you notice the difference between the trigger of the TSA gun and the keychain fake one, it even looks like it's workable and not just for show.  Flat where the finger would go; not sharp.

So...I'm not so sure they're being so stupid after all with this one case.  The keychain confiscation is a bit much, though.
 
2014-02-11 5:29:01 PM  
I'm calling shenanigans.  As the article stated, the doll doesn't come with a gun and that picture is FAR too perfect to have been taken on a whim and with a security person right there.  Plus, wouldn't the passenger's camera or phone be in the bin with the other two items?
