The TSA & Toy Guns
The TSA recently stopped a 17-year-old girl at the Jacksonville International Airport because of a decoration on her purse—which was shaped like a gun. The young girl, Vanessa Gibbs, argues that it is common sense that her purse was not a threat, but the TSA maintains that it could very well be a replica weapon. Source: News 4 Jax
