A search of a child’s carry-on bag at a Rhode Island airport on Monday revealed three stuffed animals and an artfully concealed firearm.

At approximately 4:10 p.m. on Monday, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at the TF Green Airport in Warwick reportedly found a disassembled gun and ammunition concealed inside three stuffed animals.

Security officers detected the firearm during the screening process at the TSA security checkpoint. The firearm was found in the bag of a child who was traveling with his father.

Rhode Island Airport Police responded and conducted a search of the child’s bag where they found the items that caught the TSA officer’s attention – the main frame of a .40 caliber firearm inside one stuffed animal, a magazine loaded with two .40 caliber rounds and a firing pin inside a second stuffed animal, and a slide release lever inside a third stuffed animal.

    Bigger that any other News was that the TSA let him go with his story of being set up by his ex-wife.!!!!!!!!!! WTF… You can be detained, questioned even be black listed by TSA if you for any reason display any disobedience towards the check points or even being to drunk on the plane. Yet you can smuggle gun parts and have a story and go on your marry way….. Bullsht!!! We are not all sheep keep it up and the people will revolt??!! You can not keep us all in the dark just saying anyone listening…

    Sounds like a set-up to me. It doesn’t make any sense at all to take a firing pin out of the pistol, or stash small parts like the slide release lever separately. This doesn’t sound legit at all.
