One of the featured items this week comes courtesy of MSP. Someone apparently tried to sneak a Swiss Army knife on a flight by taping the damn thing to a disposable razor. (Check out a photo of the improvised weapon at the top of this post.)
According to the TSA blog, another MSP traveler tried to bring a stun gun onto a plane last week. Across the country as a whole, 39 people tried to smuggle guns onto planes. Thirty-two of them were loaded and seven even had rounds chambered.
These are things to keep in mind next time you're tempted to groan about airport security.
