NEW YORK, - The Transportation Security Administration said a pair of shoes seized at a New York airport had fake guns for heels.

The TSA posted a photo on its Twitter account of a pair of high-heeled shoes with fake revolvers as the heels, ABC News reported Monday.

The TSA said the heels were seized from a woman traveling at New York's LaGuardia Airport.

"Also, what not to wear through a #LGA checkpoint," the tweet read.

The agency said the shoes were banned for being replica guns. They were voluntarily surrendered by the traveler, who was not arrested or fined.

Those shoes will end up at some TSA social event, worn by a TSA agent .
I doubt that they will be thrown away in the trash bin .

"Voluntarily surrendered" as in 'sign these over to us or you'll miss your flight, spend time in a detention facility and get a massive fine.'

The TSA: protecting us from fake guns, but not real terrorists.

If the shoes in the pic are the ones seized, those aren't fake revolvers, you stupid-a** All Barrack Channel dumbsh*ts! Do you see anything on those shoes that would revolve if they were real guns? Like a cylinder, maybe? No! Learn something, you anti-gun know-nothing retards!

rant off, blood pressure coming back down...

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

I get the impression that women as a whole are not as strong on gun rights as men, but taking a woman’s shoes is another matter!

I wish I'd said that! Absolutely correct description.

And, some people wonder why so many of us hate the TSA. Go figure.

Yep, I'm liking this idea more and more...

LOVE the Hillary quote.

I actually met a nice TSA guy at the Wilmington NC airport. I think he may have been the TSA’s whole presence there — the port was that small.

Oh You must mean the “Wilmington Inter-Galactic Space Port and Aerodrome “ !
Today ,if politics are accurate .. , you have to look “forward “
...and TSA will still be there !
