Just so long as it's not a handgun ...

From New York City, where handguns are verboten, but missiles are ok:

Apparently, the Queens Midtown Tunnel.

A Long Island man offered up that astonishing answer yesterday to an incredulous judge in Manhattan federal court.

Arye Sachs, 48, is being sued for trademark infringement by Pfizer Inc. for hauling the fake rocket emblazoned with the words "Viva Viagra" through Midtown last month.
Sachs also claimed he drove his "missile" through the Lincoln Tunnel five times, and was only stopped twice.

"They checked license and registration, but not the missile," he said.

Article here. Security theater at its finest. The TSA would be proud. If the terrorists develop a sense of humor, we're sunk.
