Toy Guns Banned From Airports
If you’re planning to catch a flight out of the Binghamton Airport this holiday season and are planning to take toys with you, know this-when the TSA says no guns at the airport, they mean ALL guns.
Phyllis May found out the hard way that the TSA is serious about no guns of any kind when the two-inch prop gun she had sewn to a sock monkey was confiscated at the airport.
The TSA agent pulled the “gun” out of Phyllis’ suitcase and argued that if she held the toy up to someone’s neck, they wouldn’t be able to tell if it was a toy or not.
The agent threatened to call the police, but then decided not to and gave the prop back to Phyllis. So if you don’t want to possibly go through this- it’s probably best to find a different toy to take on your flight.
