Guns at Heathrow
Brad Jayakody was stopped, and forced to remove his gun during a routine pre-flight security check.
"We won't be able to let you through because your T-shirt has got a gun on it'," the official informed Mr. Jayakody, referring to a cloth image of a robotic arm grasping a fantasy pistol.
The security supervisor agreed stating "Sorry we can't let you through and you've a gun on your T-shirt."
A BAA spokesman said there was no record of the incident and no formal complaint had been made. "If a T-shirt had a rude word or a bomb on it, for example, a passenger may be asked to remove it," he said. "We are investigating what happened to see if it came under this category. If it's offensive, we don't want other passengers upset."
The question remains though..........If Mr. Jayakody had donned a jacket, would he have been allowed to board the aircraft wearing a concealed gun on a T-shirt?
