    The TSA is not okay. This material is designed to get people to acquiesce to the severe and intolerable breach of unalienable rights for the sake of EXTREMELY false security. Just because they joke around it is NOT okay! It is fine to bring anything with you when you travel. The idea that crime and problems can be prevented (don’t be a fool! It is all Pre-crime! WTFU) is the Utopian wet dream of a fool or a psychopath!

    I am an aircraft mechanic, and frequently fly with tools. On my most recent flight from Tucson to Miami, the TSA “relieved” me of a pair of scissors and an air nozzle. This is from checked baggage, not carryon. I guess they figured the air nozzle looked like a gun of some kind?

    Is TSA Exempting Women In Hijabs From Controversial Pat-Downs?
    The rumor stems from an advisory put out by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, an organization which, among other things, publicizes perceived wrongs on the Muslim community. CAIR put out a travel advisory saying, in part, \”Before you are patted down, you should remind the TSA officer that they are only supposed to pat down the area in question, in this scenario, your head and neck. They SHOULD NOT subject you to a full-body or partial-body pat-down.\”

    I find it very hard to believe that anyone does not know that you connot bring a weapon on a plane. Duh!

      Perhaps, but exactly where on the TSA site does it say that you cannot take a movie prop corpse with you on a flight in your carry-on luggage?

    A lot of people are ignorant of airport rules, and in some cases, some people just plain forget that they have some items on them. So they get there and TSA steals their stuff. This is where I say that our government is hostile to its citizens. Rather than provide any other option, the TSA steals your items and sometimes charges you with a crime. No shipping kiosks, no option to put it in a locker and pick it up on your return, etc. This needs to change.

      They don’t ‘steal your stuff’.

      I’ve accidentally left ammunition hiding under some foam in a pelican case I was carrying on (normally checked & declared when I am travelling with a firearm), and they gave me options: Check it, take it back home, or let them confiscate it. It was only half a box of 9mm, so I let them have it. Maybe they had some fun at the range later….

      I felt stupid, but there was no hostility.

        I am sure this did not happen in Atlanta. The most unprofessional, rude and seedy TSA employees are chosen to work the ATL….
