We go through security, he puts his bag through and the alarm goes off. The lights go off, officers start coming, everybody’s pointing at us whispering. The woman says… ‘There’s a gun in your bag.’ My son goes, ‘Oh, no! It’s my toy gun for my costume.’ I said (to him), ‘You’re telling me you’ve got a mini Butterfinger, but you don’t tell me you’ve got a gun in your bag?’”
