A "Hand" gun?!!!

Well, yes- technically speaking, that is. Got this in an e-mail from my brother...

Department of Homeland Security Notification for Travelers.

Most of us see airport security as a pain. Some of us even feel violated. When you see the pictures below, you will understand why they want our cell phones through the x-ray machine. If you get asked to test your cell phone at the airport, this is the reason.



Cell phone guns have arrived. And they are real.
Beneath the digital phone face is a .22 caliber handgun capable of firing four rounds in rapid succession using the standard telephone keypad. European law enforcement officials are stunned by the discovery of these deadly decoys. They say phone guns are changing the rules of engagement in Europe .

Only when you have one in your hand do you realize that they are heavier than a regular cell phone.



Be patient if security asks to look at your cell phone or turn it on to show that it works . They have a good reason! Wake up to our NEW WORLD!! We shouldn't complain about airport security invading your privacy.

On a personal note:
Airports suck, plain and simple. Air Lines even make you pay for your luggage to travel. I would rather drive across the country than even fly for free, there would be less hassle. However, cell phone guns could show up anywhere, so forget the propaganda and think about the gun itself. ;)

I've seen this before. I worry about this kind of device, but I suppose it is better to accept it and simply be aware of it.

I remember when I saw my first James Bond movie. I thought of all kinds of things like this.
I even tried to design a few. I was only 7 or 8 years old so you can only imagine how much better they worked on paper than in reality. I never cut myself or put out anyone's eye so I count myself lucky.

:cool:

4 flights this week. To put it politely, it sucks.

I refuse to go through the nudey cameras too. So in Houston, I opt for a pat down. It's just as intrusive, but its a principle thing to me. I have seen TSA do some ridiculous things in the last few years.
