TSA Public Affairs spokesperson Lisa Farbstein shares transportation security information and tidbits.
This is a lovely knife, but not @ a #TSA checkpoint. It delayed passengers @ a Newark checkpoint, this morning.
These martial arts throwing stars (blades) were caught by #TSA officers in a traveler's carry-on bag at BWI.
See this kitchen knife? It belongs in the kitchen, not an airplane. #TSA stopped it at EWR checkpiont htis morning
Replica/toy guns look real in X-ray machines and these delayed the #TSA security line at ALB yesterday.
Magazine clips are a no-no at checkpoints. #TSA stopped these @ EWR today. PAPD took care of the handcuffs too.
Military veterans with new service dogs received expedited screening through #TSA's checkpoint at #JFK yesterday.
#TSA stopped bullet-knife @ LGA chkpt. If it has "bullet" and "knife" in its name, best not bring it to an airport
Same shotgun outside of golf bag @ DTW. This is how to fly safely with your firearm: http://tinyurl.com/bjhv53n
Jamming a shotgun into your golf bag is NOT the proper way to fly with a firearm. #TSA saw this at DTW last week.
#TSA at Washington Dulles Int'l spotted this 60 mm mortar round in checked baggage last week. Luckily it was inert
#TSA at Washington Dulles Int'l Airport stopped this stun gun at a checkpoint last week.
#TSA at BWI stopped this loaded gun from getting on board a plane last week in passenger's carry-on bag.
Take a good look. It's a replica firearm, but could cause panic on a plane. #TSA at @IAD stopped it last week.
#TSA officers at Washington-Dulles detected this sword artfully concealed inside the cane of a traveler last week.
#TSA at #DCA caught a traveler trying to sneak this pellet gun & supply of pellets through a checkpoint today.
#TSA at #Dulles caught this key with a knife concealed inside of it. A handy gadget, but not at a checkpoint.
Looked like REAL machine gun in a #TSA x-ray @ALB. Don't hold up checkpoint lines by putting toy guns in carry-ons
Holy cow! This #switchblade cleverly designed to look like a cross didn't fool #TSA officers at @Dulles last week.
#TSA at @JFK stopped this spring-loaded brass knuckles/knife combo weapon at a checkpoint. Man arrested by @PAPD.
Ridgefield,CT, woman stopped by #TSA at #JFK checkpoint with this pepper spray in her carry-on bag yesterday.
