TSA confiscates woman’s gun-shaped high heels

Stilettos that look like guns are taken by airport security.

With all the hassle of getting through lines and security checkpoints at the airport to begin with, you wouldn’t think anyone would want to delay the process further by doing anything even remotely risky.

But one woman put her wardrobe to the test last week with the TSA. According to the Daily Beast, a woman had her black patent-leather pump shoes taken away from her at LaGuardia airport last week. Why? Because the heels of the shoe were designed to resemble guns. No, the gun shoes weren’t dangerous. But they were indeed a fashion risk gone wrong. So she agreed to take them off and walked through security barefoot. After the incident, the Daily Beast reports that the TSA tweeted a photo of the gun heels with the saying “Also, what not to wear at #LGA checkpoint.”

Good for TSA !!!  They deserve to be confiscated.  She was probably a hillbilly, trailer-trash, NRA-lovin' idiot to begin with...now she's a shoeless hillbilly, trailer-trash, NRA-lovin' idiot.  LMAO
