    The article didn't say the gun was loaded or that he had ammo.

    Which strongly implies the gun was not loaded and he had no ammo. If the TSA finds Ammo or the gun is loaded they always brag about it. Essentially, the TSA found a big, expensive, paperweight in the man's carry on.

    Just an attempt to over-hype non events in an attempt to draw coverage and hits away from the plethora of other stories that plague TSA on a daily basis.

    These stories are probably targeted to many northeast and SoCal readers who see any gun as a looming death sentence. The fact is that the rest of the country considers a gun a tool just like a chain saw. Both are dangerous if used improperly, but useful if used responsibly in the proper context.

    Exactly! The inert grenade story appeared days late, released right when the strip incidents were peaking in the news.

    Can another puppy story be far behind?

    You're right and as SunnyGoth pointed out in the other thread, they couldn't tell the difference between a picture of a gun and a real gun either.

    Uhh.......... you mean "replica weapon"? Sounds much more dangerous that way.

    And has now moved the stripped grannies stories down the page on the blog. Deflecting much?

    They can't in public schools, either. Which explains the whole thing.
