You can’t bring gun-themed purses to the airport
Teenager Virginia Gibbs was prevented from boarding a plane because the gun design on her purse violated the rules. Even though it was small and attached to a purse, the gun just looked too real.
Said Transportation Security Administration spokesman Greg Soule:
"Security checkpoints may be impacted or closed because replica weapons like toy guns, novelty grenades, fake bombs and other items appear similar to the real thing when viewed through an X-ray machine."
He suggested passengers do not bring these deceptive items when they are trying to catch a flight.
