Remember to bake your Glock until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees to be safe from any bacteria after traveling inside poultry.

Forget the gun, I'm more curious about why someone would bring a raw chicken on an airplane. Since she was on her way to Haiti, maybe Voodoo? A sacrifice to Jobu. By the way, Cerrano was played by the Allstate commercials.

Big mistake on her part! She should have hidden it in a live chicken. XRays are not good for chickens so TSA might have let it pass.

Back in the 1980s, I had left a.22 cal. Marlin semiautomatic rifle in MI after I moved to AZ. My parents told me to take it away or they would get rid of it. I contacted the airline to take it home I took it apart and put it into the cardboard box with clothes and was sent in baggage. No TSA and could not get to it. Dumb female passenger.
