But hey, they look so much alike, give the TSA at Boston a break:
A man has been arrested after FBI and TSA officials said his luggage contained volatile gun parts, which caused his bag to explode Tuesday just before it was about to be loaded on a plane.
The unidentified 37-year-old man had 500 to 700 bullet primers in his luggage. Primers are considered the “spark plugs” of a bullet and ignites the gun powder, projecting it toward the intended target.
Officials originally said the exploding bag was caused by a hairspray aerosol can.
The situation turned out to be much more serious and could have been even more dangerous if the bag containing the combustible elements would have exploded while the plane was in the air.
They’re adept at harrassing grannies, children, lactating mothers and kids with braces on their legs, all in the name of keeping us safe.
But they miss a cache of bullets that end up exploding in someone’s luggage.
How do you spell incompetence?
