Woman Gets Stun Gun Past Airport Security Checkpoint

Airport security is cool and all, but when we're being forced to undress, bend over, and throw away our $4 Pepsi while a lady in Albany somehow gets her stun gun past the security checkpoint, we start to lose faith that this is all serving the greater good.

On Saturday, Amy Burns passed through the security checkpoint at Albany International Airport with her child and a stroller in tow. It wasn't until she reached the gate that a ramp worker, who was attempting to load her stroller into the baggage hold, discovered a stun gun in the stroller's storage basket.

It's unknown if Burns was planning to use it on the flight and why she had it in the first place. While we await word on that, we'll be hopping over to the nearest chair to put our belt and shoes back on. [From: Gadling]
