Re: Not THAT realistic

You did read the bit about how the perp did _not_ have the faux firearm in his hip pocket as the photo shows. It was found during a routine security check. Perhaps whilst x-raying his carryon luggage? We don't know actually.

Stansted (no spellcheck, it's not stagnated) does tell people[1] that toy guns and replica weapons may not be carried in hand luggage, although if you saw the whole thing[2] in an x-ray, instead of just part of it, maybe you wouldn't be nearly as quick to pop a few rounds into the twit. Or maybe you would!
