Small Explosion as Bag of Bullet Primers Found on Miami Flight
http://www.justnews.com/news/26301709/detail.html

'A small explosion in a bag coming off a plane at Miami International Airport on Tuesday led the FBI to discover a bag full of bullet primers in a man's suitcase.
The FBI said hundreds of bullet primers were found in a bag that arrived at Miami International Airport just before noon Tuesday on American Airlines Flight 2585 from Boston.
A bullet primer is the back end of a bullet that provides the spark for a bullet to fire.
The FBI said a 37-year-old suspect has been arrested and charged with transport of hazardous materials. The suspect was connecting in Miami on the way to Jamaica.
FBI investigators said they do not believe the incident is connected to terrorism.
A representative of Miami International Airport said a bomb squad searched other luggage on the plane for anything suspicious. Gates D11 through D19 are not currently in use, but Concourse D remains open, the representative said.
From Sky 10 overhead, workers could be seen spreading suitcases apart on the tarmac, and a police officer took a K-9 to sniff each one.
Miami-Dade police and the FBI are investigating.'

1. Dumbass
They're quite safe if you leave them in their original packaging. Dumping a quantity of them in a jar, can, bag, etc. is just plain stupid.

3. "bullet primer . . . back end of a bullet . . . provides . . . spark for a bullet to fire"
I've loaded several hundred thousand rounds of shotgun, rifle, and pistol ammunition and that ranks among the most stupid GG sentences I've every read.

4. AA allows 11 lbs of ammunition per passenger. Would properly packed primers declared be OK?
