    CBS Local New York: TSA Agents Spot Passenger With Pen-Sized Stun Gun At JFK


    TSA agents spotted the pen-sized stun gun in the man’s checked luggage and called Port Authority Police, who confiscated the weapon and arrested the man on a weapons charge. Operations at the airport weren’t impacted.


    These self-protection devices are legal in most of the country and legal to purchase by mail order in most states:
    1. Stun Master 1.2 Million Volt Rechargeable Pen Stun Gun W/ Flashlight ($29.95)
    2. Stun Master 950,000 Volt Rechargeable Lipstick Stun Gun W/ Flashlight ($24.95)
    #1 was probably what was in the passengers checked baggage.

    They probably only found it because it looked like a sex toy on the X-ray.

    According to the Examiner, the passenger was traveling to Korea.

    If his travel originated outside New York and he was only connecting at JFK, the arrest and confiscation were illegal, an ongoing scam at New York airports where they eventually drop the charges once you've hired a lawyer to straighten them out.

    The TSA even sent out a picture to the newz media. Throw the barking seal a fish! :rolleyes: Now... how does one retrieve something stowed down in the cargo pit during flight? I bet MacGyver could figure out a way!
