But on the way back to North Carolina two TSA agents at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport took his toys, among them, a Pirates of the Caribbean sword, a light saber and a wooden gun.
So we then read this part of the report:
The TSA said the items were prohibited.
"Passengers who bring a prohibited item such as a replica weapon to the checkpoint have a number of options, including putting the item in their checked baggage, returning it to their vehicle or mailing it to themselves," a TSA statement read. "There are mail stations at each of the checkpoints at Fort Lauderdale."
Sorry, but a "light saber" is a replica of what real weapon?
