The U.S. Transport Security Administration’s new account provides a behind-the-scenes look at prohibited items found at their checkpoints.

The U.S. Transport Security Administration‘s (TSA) new Instagram account provides a behind-the-scenes look at the types of goods that are confiscated. Set up at the end of last month, the feed for the official TSA account offers pictures of prohibited items discovered at their checkpoints, such as airports.

The TSA blog team provides an insight into their security work by documenting a variety of dangerous items such as fireworks, knives, guns, grenades, daggers, loaded pistols, a belt buckle knife, a credit card knife, and even a stun gun disguised as a pack of cigarettes.
