TSA agents held a brief news conference Wednesday morning to show some of the items passengers have tried to carry on. They included stun guns that look like flashlights, baseball bats, brass knuckles, a belt decorated with bullets and even a weed wacker.
“We see a lot of inexperienced travelers during spring break and during the holidays,” said Mike England, TSA spokesman. “We’re seeing raised awareness in terms of prohibited items. But I still think there’s some progress yet to be made.”
The most common reason for bringing these things through security? Travelers simply forgot. That’s especially true for items on key chains like pepper spray or pocket knives.
For a full list of prohibited items, from food to flammables to sporting goods, go to the TSA website.
