Reviewing TSA’s weekly gotcha’ list

On most Fridays, TSA’s blogger Bob Burns posts a tally of the number of guns (loaded and unloaded) caught during the prior week at US airport security checkpoints and gives a review of the forbidden, and often truly far-out, items TSA officers find.

Last week was no different. According to the TSA blog, last week 26 guns (only one unloaded!) were discovered along with at least seven stun guns, throwing stars, inert novelty grenades, fireworks and loads of knives.
