What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

[guest post by JVW] I took a quick check in the Patterico’s Pontifications archives and I don’t think we discussed this story when it broke back in June.

Gun stupid hits the jackpot. The week America accidentally shot anything that moved. GunFAIL CLXIV

Seventeen of 64 guns discovered by TSA agents at airports across the country, during the week of 10/16-10/22/15. Wow. The volume is really starting to pick up toward the end of the year.

Air Marshal Sues After Being Kicked Off Flight

We've seen tons of people in the airline industry on power trips post-9/11, be they flight attendants, TSA agents, or air marshals.

Wedding favors caused TSA agents to evacuate Denver International Airport a couple of weeks ago, because they look exactly like something you should not have in your carry-on bag. The favors, which had glass, wax, and fuses, naturally sparked alarm with the TSA because they look like homemade bombs (made by cartoon madmen). Show More Summary
