What Does She Think?
It’s somehow okay to carry a loaded pistol onto a plane, with a bullet in the chamber, because it’s pink?
“Prohibited In Pink”
A Virginia woman headed for New York’s Kennedy International Airport was arrested at Richmond International Airport after Transportation Security Administration officers found a loaded hot pink handgun in her carry-on luggage.
According to Fox News:
Richmond TSA alerted airport police, who responded and arrested the woman on a weapons charge, WTOP reported.
The hot pink 9 mm gun was confiscated, along with eight pink-tipped bullets that were loaded in the clip at the time. One was reportedly in the chamber.
TSA officials reminded passengers on Twitter that, despite a gun being “colorful,” it still is “not allowed past the TSA checkpoint.”
According to the Washington Post, this is the fourth time a weapon has been confiscated at a security checkpoint at the Richmond airport this year.
If a weapon is found in a carry-on, passengers can be subject to fines of up to $13,000 and possible jail time if the owner does not have a concealed carry permit.
Plane passengers may travel with weapons, as long as they have been declared to the airline and stored in a checked bag.”
