The TSA confiscated a rather interesting souvenir yesterday: a missile launcher.
TSA officers detected the weapon in a passenger’s checked luggage at Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI).
A press release says the man told agents he is active duty military personnel returning home from Kuwait. He simply, you know, wanted to keep the missile launcher as a souvenir.
Snowglobes and t-shirts: pfft, amateur hour keepsakes!
The missile launcher was not a live device. The state fire marshal assumed the firearm for safe disposal.
“Military weapons are not permitted in checked or carry-on bags,” the TSA tells us. #TheMoreYouKnow
(Also, we sincerely thank the gentleman for his service.)
