    It staggers the imagination that the father and son were allowed to continue their flight after what can only be considered an intentional act to disguise and smuggle.

    The consistency of treatment for people is so strange (from all parts of government). There seems to be one constant - no consistency.

    Really, people who forget to not arm themselves are arrested, but this guy is not? Sometimes words don't do justice to the situation.

    The first little blurb of the story said it was "domestic" related. Think maybe the guy's wife/ex-wife hid the gun pieces inside the animals in the hopes of getting him in trouble with the law? Maybe he got custody and she didn't like it. Just speculation on my part, but that's the only reason I can think of that they would let him go after questioning him.

    Agreed, unless there is a lot more to the story. Old saying, "things are seldom what they seem."

    Rhode Island Airport Police say the discovery of a disassembled gun and ammunition hidden inside stuffed animal toys during a screening at T.F. Green Airport Monday, appears to be domestic related and never posed a security threat.

    Yeah, but would the average ex-wife (if thats the case) know how to strip a pistol, to that degree?

    Definitely a long story to go with this one.

    From another news story on the subject...

    Authorities later allowed the 4-year-old boy and his father to continue their travel to Detroit after concluding the man didn't pose a risk, authorities said. He told police that he didn't know the parts were inside the stuffed toys -- which included a Mickey Mouse and a teddy bear.

    "It appears to be the result of a domestic dispute," Rhode Island Airport Police Chief Leo Messier said. "It was jointly investigated by the RI Airport Police, FBI and the RI State Police and it was determined that there was no threat at any time to air safety."

    Why don't you think a woman can do that? Because she is a woman? Come on. A gun is not that technical a device. I am sure she can find instructions on the internet, if not a video.

    But would the average man know how to resew the stuffed animals back together? It looks like a woman must have been involved if they were sewed back. (sarcasm)
