A miniature toy gun was thought to be a terrorist risk.

A friend of mine works for TSA. I asked her if my Glock 17 keychain would go through. She asked her supes, and the answer was, of course. NO!

Security theater.

I'd day that they may have thought it was a Kolibri, but the gun pictured is clearly a revolver.

Mini Gun Confiscated at Heathrow Airport




I clicked on this thread while wondering, How and why would you try to bring a "mini-gun", Gatling gun, through any commercial airport? Apparently, after reading the link, you don't.

I was disappointed when this did not involve something the the General Electric logo on it.

When I first saw the headline I wondered too, silly play on words that they probably don't realize gets us "gun folk" excited.

Can't they hire anyone with any common sense? Has to be the same people that are afraid of pictures of guns.

Pictures of guns are quite dangerous to pictures of people, keep that in mind.

Pretty sure everyone commenting knows that. Just ridiculing "gun sensitivity".
