And the award for Best Comedy goes to…..the T.S.A.!


If it wasn’t so serious, it would really be funny. Man goes through full TSA security check at Reagan National Airport. Man later realizes he brought his gun with him. Man voluntarily goes back to TSA with gun.

According to Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority spokesman, Rob Yingling, the gun was taken from Mr.Gregory Hinkle and he was given a misdemeanor summons. Mr. Yingling went on to declare: “We don’t allow any dangerous weapons in the terminal”. Aren’t guns considered dangerous?

Mr. Yingling may have a serious job but he is not afraid to let his silly side shine through. He continued – “the agency has a very high success rate in detecting firearms.” One wonders what Mr. Yingling considers “very high.”

It would be very interesting to check the end of year stats. I wonder if Mr. Hinkle voluntarily giving up his weapon will be subsequently recorded as a “detection” by the TSA?
