Each week, the Transportation Security Administration publishes on its blog a rundown of some of the scariest and weirdest stuff people try to bring onto planes.

One of the featured items this week comes courtesy of MSP. Someone apparently tried to sneak a Swiss Army knife on a flight by taping the damn thing to a disposable razor. (Check out a photo of the improvised weapon at the top of this post.)

According to the TSA blog, another MSP traveler tried to bring a stun gun onto a plane last week. Across the country as a whole, 39 people tried to smuggle guns onto planes. Thirty-two of them were loaded and seven even had rounds chambered.

These are things to keep in mind next time you're tempted to groan about airport security.

I don't know if I'd call that a weapon. Probably just wanted to bring his Swiss Army Knife on vacation with him and tried to figure out a way to get it past security.

If a round isn't chambered, the gun isn't loaded.

@LuteFisk This is old. They never implemented this policy due to massive airline opposition.
