Customer Question
I wish to bring...

I wish to bring my son a rifle scope in my carry on bag. Will there be a problem?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

California -- flying from Sacramento to San Diego

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I don't understand the question. What might be filed or reported and to whom?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not that I am aware of

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.

Pursuant to TSA rules, rifle scopes are permitted in carry-on and checked baggage. So technically, there should not be an issue. Practically, you may be asked a few questions when they see the scope, since TSA agents are always on a look out for anything out of the ordinary.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
