LOL that is hilarious!! Thanks for sharing!Dr. Snubnose wrote:Tactical Pens can be very tactical....I knew it would be only a matter of time before someone got the book thrown at him for boarding a plane with one...Quite Ironic though a friend took his son to the Yankee games some years back and security took away his nail clipper saying it was a dangerous weapon...so he gave it up...instead of making a fuss...the kid so wanted to go to the game...then at the game they hand out something like 50,000 bats...it was bat day .....Hey if you want a weapon on the plane they give you one already..it's in the flap in front of the seat in front of you...it's called the airplane travel magazine....open it up and place a roll of quarters( which until now is legal to take on the plane) and place them in the center by the staples, roll up your flight magazine and now you have a very effective sap...trouble goes down...swing away!!!......Doc

We have all got used to making sacrifices like leaving penknives in our hold luggage so what did he think would happen with a pen designed for use as a weapon?
Couldn't agree more - I didn't say I liked it or thought it was a worthwhile activity All I'm saying is that airlines have conditions of travel and one of them is that you're not allowed to bring weapons or items on their banned list into the cabin ... and the guy broke the rules, so it shouldn't have been a big surprise to him.peacefuljeffrey wrote:So why are they banning the pens, when a determined person could do plenty of similar damage with a 6 inch heavy steel hex wrench? The whole thing is idiotic.
I think that any judge worthy of the robes should quickly and unceremoniously dismiss all charges against this man.ChrisR wrote:Couldn't agree more - I didn't say I liked it or thought it was a worthwhile activity All I'm saying is that airlines have conditions of travel and one of them is that you're not allowed to bring weapons or items on their banned list into the cabin ... and the guy broke the rules, so it shouldn't have been a big surprise to him.
