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

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

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

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

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"?

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?

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.

WhoGAS: that gun in the TSA's hand (which he is idiotically aiming at his face)

Wanted to note this.

If you're going to treat everything that looks like a firearm as a threat, you should also treat it like a firearm and not look down what would be the barrel if it actually was a threat.

There's no way you could travel with that now (or even buy one in the first place).

You're right, he never came with a gun. He came with Bo Peep.

Fizics: 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.


Unmitigated horseshiat.  They brainwashed you into being an idiot with no common sense - like the rest of them.

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.

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.

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

Am I falling victim to a troll, or do you not know where Heathrow is?
