    I wonder if this was a test bag of some sort or truly a person traveling?

    This is something that would have been caught pre-tsa so nothing to crow about

  4. Yeah, it's so far-fetched, it almost can't be real. But who knows.

    Exactly! Nothing to see here outside of TSA propaganda.

    big big non story. Then again how is a magazine in the picture a threat to aviation, or the slide for the pistol without the rest of the gun. Only thing those objects are good for is throwing without the rest of the gun. #Idiots

    Closer to $9 billion a year, but what's a few extra bucks when it comes to making people feel safe. :eek:

    Looks to me as though the magazines are empty. Anyone this stupid deserves to be caught, However, it is only the ones this stupid that the TSA screeners, with their limited mental capacity, are able to catch.

    Mags empty, slides removed from frames, and just to many other weapons for me to believe that this was a person so stupid to try taking this case through a TSA Gestapo checkpoint.

    Yep, looks like a staged photo-op.

  11. Well yeah, and they're all laid out in one of the grey tubs, am I wrong? There's no information on what the bag packing originally looked like, whether the guns and magazines were originally loaded or not, etc. Unless I'm missing something.

    Probably a collection of their "catches". No indication of the time frame, my interpretation is that they were in carry on bags, not in any one persons carry on.

    Yeah. No genitals needed to be rubbed in order to catch this. So...remind me again...WHY do they rub our genitals?
