A lot of people unknowingly pack banned items all the time. But, there's a difference between an accident, and intentionally hiding them on your body. This isn't the brightest idea. You may think you have a great hiding spot, but just don't risk it. Doing so could get you a serious fine or even a trip to jail!

We understand that buying souvenirs is expected during travel, but some should just stay where they are.

Knives seem to be a big problem. It's obvious that this carved bone is a pretty impressive piece. But, according to the TSA, no matter how beautiful this is, it's still a decent-sized knife. This particular one was found in a carry-on at Baltimore Airport.

This next one will show you exactly why TSA was created.

It goes without question, that most people would need a change of clothes if they found a claymore mine and a bomb vest in someone's luggage. These particular items were training aids brought by an explosive ordnance disposal contractor. But TSA still had a job to do, so they put everything to a halt in order to determine the threat level.

The creativity in the next one is almost admirable...Almost.

It's extremely difficult to resist the cheerful spirit of Christmas. We're assuming that's why this holiday traveler wrapped all of their pounds of heroin with festive Christmas paper. We bet they thought that TSA would never mess with someone's gifts. They were apparently very wrong. This person was caught at LAX.

It may surprise you, but did you know, that the 2nd Amendment doesn't matter on an airplane?

You Can't Take Their Guns

It's no secret that Americans love guns. So it's not really surprising that so many travelers want to take their beloved guns on the plane. But where's the common sense? Even though there are strict guidelines that have to be followed, guns can be brought on planes, just as long as they're in checked baggage.

Apparently, there are people who don't have enough sense to leave flammable liquids at home.
