Roller Derby -- air security threat

Via The Sun:
A TOURIST was told to turn his T-shirt inside-out at an airport — as a picture of two guns on it was deemed a SECURITY RISK. Dave Osborne, 21, was bound for Newark, New Jersey, when guards hauled him out of the queue for his Guns N Rollers T-shirt. They told him the two pistols on the front could constitute a security risk and upset passengers. He was ordered to turn his top inside out before boarding. The design engineer from Lichfield, Staffs, said: “I am all for extra security but this was just plain stupid.” Last night bosses at Birmingham International Airport apologised and said security guards “over-reacted”.
