tsa #TBT May, 2013 - One passenger at the Oakland International Airport (OAK) had a plethora of prohibited martial arts items in his carry-on bag including swords, knives, throwing stars, a grappling hook, and more! While these items are always prohibited in carry-on bags, they may be packed in checked bags. It’s important to know the local laws where you’re traveling though, because it’s illegal to possess martial arts weapons in certain parts of the country. #TSAGoodCatch 5d

  •   bigpapak9 @henryleutwyler your opinion is your own but just so it's said a lot of the services you listed are actually provide by corporate business not the government. Also before you go talking about how dumb gun lovers are maybe consider that the founding fathers, who were pretty smart guys, not only owned guns but also thought enough of them to pin the second amendment. 5d

tsa #TSATravelTips - Whether it’s a live or inert grenade, or a novelty item such as a belt buckle, lighter, soap, an MP3 player, etc., anything resembling a grenade is prohibited from both carry-on and checked baggage. In addition to possible arrests and fines, items such as these can lead to the closure of checkpoints and checked baggage areas and lead to missed and delayed flights. 2w

tsa #TBT - These replica #WWII German stick grenades were discovered in a checked bag in March of 2013 at the Louisville International Airport (SDF) in Kentucky. TSA officers don’t know items such as these grenades are inert until explosives detection professionals, along with law enforcement, remove the items from the X-ray tunnel and resolve the alarm. This most likely will cause a closure of our checkpoint and lead to missed and delayed flights. All grenades, no matter whether they’re inert, replica, or live - are prohibited from both carry-on and checked baggage. #TSAGoodCatch 2w

  •   timroyal @nbmoretto you know there's already a badge on most planes with a firearm? Many flights have an Air Marshal who carries on the flight. No cop is going to high jack a plane. 2w
  •   nbmoretto @timroyal there are stories all over the internet of cops gone bad and killing other officers and/or innocent people 2w
  •   timroyal @nbmoretto well if a cop were to go bad on a plane there would be other armed citizens to stop him. 2w
  •   nbmoretto @timroyal poor logic. I'm all for citizens being able to carry concealed weapons, but no need for them to be on a plane. 2w
