A look-see at TSA’s take at airport checkpoints

It’s bad enough that we have to sit next to strange, smelly, arm rest-hogging people on airplanes. The thought that my seatmate might have a dagger or a gun in that greasy paper bag they’ve shoved down there underneath the seat in front of them just makes it worse.

Which is probably one the reasons I scour the weekly run-down of weapons and other items the TSA finds at airport checkpoints and lists – with photos – on the TSA blog.

No, the 13 people caught last week with stun guns and the 28 folks nabbed with loaded guns in their carry-on bags may not have been card-carrying terrorists, but they’re potentially dangerous just the same.
