Guy Builds Ten Weapons With Products Purchased After Getting Through Airport Security.
If past history is any indication, it seems likely that the little convenience shop on the “air side” of most airports is soon going to be told to stop selling certain items. Last week a few sites, including Boing Boing, Gizmodo and Business Insider, all had stories on a guy who showed how to build a small bomb in less than ten minutes with items that could all be purchased after already passing through TSA security in an airport. The bomb may not be that big, but you could see how it could do at least some damage (and, given the situation, it’s not that difficult to imagine ways to make changes to it that would be more damaging).
But, here’s the thing. That video isn’t the only weapon shown. The YouTube account Terminal Cornucopia actually put up ten videos of weapons that can be built on the air side of airport security, including a crossbow, a remote detonator, a slingbow, a “remotely triggered incendiary suitcase,” a shotgun, a spiked club, a pewter slug and a blowgun.
