It's Easier To Get A Firearm On A Plane Than A Galaxy Note 7

Air transport for Samsung Galaxy Note 7s is now regulated more strictly than firearms.
A U.S. Department of Transportation ban went into effect Saturday. The phones aren't allowed in carry-on luggage, checked bags or even your pocket for all flights, including those heading out of or coming into the U.S.
Firearms, however, are allowed on aircraft under certain conditions. The Transportation Security Administration has some regulations, like requiring they be locked in a hard container and be transported only in checked luggage.
