    All over the media this afternoon ...

    New England Cable News: TSA finds disassembled gun, ammo in child's stuffed toys

    Clearly an attempt to smuggle a gun onto a plane, but they just let them fly anyway?

    The only thing odd is that there were only 2 rounds in magazine. .40 magazines typically hold 10-15 rounds.

    I don't understand the catch and release system apparently in place.

    False flag? Or just stupidity? (meaning the father was stupidly trying to get his stash through)

    Hard to know .... interesting timing though, don't you think?

    No arrest no media no lawyers no big deal. Shows you why we gotta grope four year old Suzy

    First the underwear bomb and now this. Coincidence? I think not. You've got gun parts in stuffed animals, the father's explanation is that he has no idea how they got inside the toys and the TSA just lets him get on the plane? Something is very fishy.
     
  8. Timing's way too convenient, after that one groper was all over the 4 year old "suspect" who hugged her grandma, ranting "gun in a teddy bear, gun in a teddy bear."

    Gee, TSA is getting desperate. False flag, clearly.

    Geez louise, how mad do you have to be at your husband to put gun parts in your child's stuffed animals and then send him to the airport with his father? She was basically throwing her son at the mercy of the TSA - THE TSA! I don't know, something is still wrong with this whole story.

  14. That is indeed unlike any domestic dispute I can imagine.
     
  15. I liked this part of the story. I wonder if they'll let me go if I have a joint artfully concealed in my kid's stuffed animal and tell them I didn't know it was there?

    This attempt was too stupid to be dreamed up by anyone except TSA.

    I'm having a hard time believing this whole charade. And even IF true, yet another non threat.

    Actually, this is the most believable explanation I've seen. Domestic disputes, as you know, can be incredibly nasty. If people murder each other them, and they do, then they can put gun parts into stuffed animals. (None of which, of course, is to give any credit to the TSA.)

    Somewhat believable up until one of the parts was a "firing pin". I doubt most gun owners have the skills to remove the firing pin from their weapons.

    Especially on a weapon that uses .40 and has a slide release lever.
