2″ GI Joe rifle confiscated at LAX. The British tabloid The Sun reports that security guards at LAX confiscated a two-inch plastic GI Joe rifle from a seven-year-old’s toy action figure. I feel safer.
Security chiefs at Los Angeles airport said: ãWe have instructions to confiscate anything that looks like a weapon or a replica.
ãIf GI Joe was carrying a replica then it had to be taken from him.ä
The continuing efforts to eliminate judgment from human processes scares me no end. [McGee’s Musings]
