Meet the 4-Year Old Gun Smuggler

 
T.F. Green Airport

Please choose your favorite disturbing moment in this story:

1.) At Rhode Island's T.F. Green Airport, inside a 4-year-old’s carry-on Mickey Mouse doll, stuffed bear and stuffed rabbit, TSA authorities found the frame of a .40 caliber gun, a loaded magazine and a firing pin.

2.) None of these items were discovered by the X-ray machine.

3.) The father claimed to have no clue as to how those crazy things got inside his child’s toys (presumably tossing his toddler to the Feds).

4.) Airport security termed the incident part of a domestic dispute and allowed father and son to continue on their flight to Detroit.

5.) All of the above.

PS: One piece of good news – the gun parts were confiscated by the authorities.
