'Pistol pendant causes airport holdup'
That's the headline from the Toronto Star which is reporting that Marnina Norys, a 39-year-old Ph.D. student in Canada, was stopped by security and prohibited from wearing her necklace into the terminal.
Last week, security officials at Kelowna International Airport in British Columbia forced Norys to remove a silver necklace with a pendant in the shape of a Colt .45 pistol.
The 2-inch pendant apparently was deemed a security risk.
"When the woman pointed at the pendant I had no idea what she was talking about," Norys told the Star. "They made me feel ashamed, as if I should have known that it was wrong to wear this type of jewelry."
An airport security official told Norys was told that replica firearms are banned from planes and that she'd have to check her jewelry.
According to the Star, Dave Smith, director of screening operations with the Canadian Air Transport Authority (CATSA), issued a written apology to Norys and wrote that the screening officer "made a judgment call, rather than refer to CATSA's standard operating procedures. In retrospect, your revolver-shaped pendant is not a threat and should have been allowed on board the aircraft." --Roger Yu

First shirts now jewelry.

And this was Canada. IF it was the US of A she would have been strip searched, led away in cuffs, and subjected to involuntary mental assessments and counseling.
