'Can you put the bullets in a separate tray, please?'
Americans are funny people. Air travel means going through the most cumbersome and seemingly thorough security measures in the world. At one point I even arrived at the airport to find out I'd spontaneously been put on a later flight because I'd been selected for an extra thorough security check!
And then, amidst all that security mayhem, there's a sign that tells you to unload your firearm before you declare it to the airline...
Of course. How stupid of me. We want to avoid planes being hijacked and search people to the bone. But under no circumstances shall we be forbidden to arrive at the airport unarmed. Sic transit gloria mundi.
