And by toy gun, I should emphasize the “toy” part because it’s just a little piece of plastic in the shape of a gun.  It doesn’t actually fire anything.  So now, we’re banning shapes.

The crouching, camouflaged figure is most certainly armed. But few would say he was dangerous.

Security officials disagreed however when he passed through a scanner at Gatwick Airport.

His three-inch, plastic toy gun was branded a ‘firearm’ and banned from a transatlantic flight.

It doesn’t even have a trigger.  No bullets.  It’s solid plastic.  It couldn’t even be used to pretend hijack a model airplane.
