Should this be in the gardening thread? Clearly, there is a breed of bush that grows guns. And wow, it took everything I had to keep this post PG rated.

I was in NYC last year, not carrying a firearm, but I was carrying my Benchmade folder. We were taking some international friends sight-seeing, and that included a stop at the Statue of Liberty. While waiting in line to buy tickets, I noticed signs saying "TSA-Style Security Ahead". I asked at the ticket counter and was told I couldn't take a knife to the Statue of Liberty. I asked if they would hold it for me and they said no, that my only choice was to go find a spot to bury it, and get it when I came back.

Straight face, no joke.

I said that was ridiculous and I wasn't going to do that, and the guy was like, lots of people do that, its the only way. So I had some really good pizza across the street while our guests went to the statue.

Same thing for me when I visited D.C. and wanted to visit Smithsonian. Take it out and hide it is what the "TSA style" security guard said.

i went up the empire state building last winter. They held my knife and gave me a little ticket to retrieve it on the way down. It was a 12 dollar knife and i would have tossed it if i had to, but no problems.

I often look at my gun as a stack of money. Between purchase, ammo & pre ban mag, It's a $600 stack. Tell me, if you had $600, would you just leave it in a bush? Sometimes I feel as though there should be standardized testing, I don't care what the constitution says, SOME people just shouldn't have a gun

Back when I was underage I went to a punk concert and they wouldn't let anybody in the venue with cigarettes for some reason and since you wouldn't find this out until you were at the entrance people would just throw them in the bushes. My friends and I saw this and had the bright idea to leave the show 20 minutes early and ended up scoring about a carton worth each.

But guys, how is that a violation of the 4th amendment? Like with flying, simply don't fly. And if you want to see the nation's foremost landmark, just don't see it.

That is what drives me nuts with people that say "TSA is not a violation of the 4th amendment because you can simply not fly." Yeah...until they pull this "TSA Style" crap in other places...
