Vanessa Gibbs, 17, claims the Transportation Security Administration stopped her at the security gate because of the design of a gun on her handbag.
Gibbs said she had no problem going through security at Jacksonville International Airport, but rather, when she headed home from Virginia.
"It's my style, it's camouflage, it has an old western gun on it," Gibbs said.
But her preference for the pistol style didn't sit well with TSA agents at the Norfolk airport.
Gibbs said she was headed back home to Jacksonville from a holiday trip when an agent flagged her purse as a security risk.

This is all going according to plan.
They (TPTB) have sucessfully gotten our Law enforcement agencies and schools to throw common sense out the window in favor of this ridiculous policy of zero tolorance. This allows for the most absolutely insane and ridiculous violations of our constitutional,human,and civil rights you have ever seen.
It will only get worse and more insane as time goes on I'm afraid.
If you're wondering where the bottom is......lol........there isn't one I promise you that.
Wait until you hear about a two year old getting arrested for hitting a cop.
IT WILL HAPPEN!!!!! and we WILL allow it to happen.
I hear alot of tough talk from people on here especially about how "If they would have done that to MY kid I would have___________"
"If I would have been there I would have marched straight up to them and _________"
NO YOU WOULDN'T HAVE!!!!!
You would have sat there and taken it like a little B**** just like the rest of us do.
There is a reason we are in this mess and it isn't because AmeriKa is filled with John Wayne wannabees with itchy trigger fingers.
It is because our nation is filled with a bunch of pussies.
NOTHING shocks me anymore.
It is getting more insane by the day.edit on 2-12-2011 by Screwed because: (no reason given)edit on 2-12-2011 by Screwed because: (no reason given)
