    Bomb squad it out, but that thing is so tiny, cant hide a grenade!

    Still, good to be cautious.

    If they blow it up, "I mean render it harmless", then its stupid.

    (FYI, that gyro should not be there unless is had flight plan filed and was tracked by ATC in the ADIZ. pilot in world of hurt if he did not)

    Edit: CNN report

    Grenades are pretty small, don't think he could have shoved it up his butt though.

    Something smaller than 1 inch tubes? That's a weird comment. Could hide it in a pocket.

    Either way the man wasn't hostile and gave warning he was flying. He did know he was breaking the law too.

    Video of his plan here

    if he DID shove it up his butt, how would he detonate? ask the intended victim to pull his finger? :p

    OMG!

    How could this happen?

    Obviously, the CIA/NSA/FBI/DOD/ATF/DHS/DIA/NRO/NGA/Secret Service/IRS/state police/local police/Army/Air Force/Navy/Marines/Coast Guard need huge budget increases. Several hundred billion dollars should do.

    Anything less, the terrorists win.

    Why fly a gyrocopter to Capital Hill when you can just jump the fence and walk in the front door of the White House? :p

    It's a good thing the NSA was tracking his online activity and was able to stop him...

    He wasn't even hiding his plans, he was open about them! The secret service even knew about the guy.
