a really expensive and stupid thing to try and do.
One would think he would have the right to go back and check his baggage. He may miss his flight but at least he wouldn’t lose his gun. Wasn’t there a time when this would have been legal.
pre 911 I think?
I have made that same argument in other threads here. When I got to the TSA checkpoint one time many years ago, I realized I forgot to put my knife in my checked bag. The TSA agent stated to go back to the check-in counter and have my bag recalled so I could put my knife in it. I now put my knife in the checked bag before leaving home or the hotel room.
I’ve lost lots of pocket knives to the TSA. Moral: don’t carry expensive knives
