Canadian tourist Ken Lloyd bought the nine-inch model soldier holding a replica SA80 rifle during a visit to the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford Camp, Dorset.

Officials declared the moulded gun could not go on the plane because it was a ‘firearm’.

Even if it were a “firearm,” it’s clearly not a dangerous one because it lacks a little thing known to the firearms industry, as a “trigger!”

Man some people are idiots!!!!
