In addition to a spike in the number of guns found each day at checkpoints recently, we continue to find hand grenades and other ordnance on weekly basis. Please keep in mind that if something looks like a bomb, grenade, mine, etc., it is prohibited – real or not. And when these items are found at the checkpoint, they can cause significant delays to you and other passengers. I know they are cool novelty items; I use to own a few. But again, please don’t take them on planes!
This week’s roundup of security line blunders includes hidden razor blades, lots of inert grenades, and a slight uptick in the number of handguns flyers “forgot” to leave at home.
