    A stun gun hidden in a flashlight, nunchucks and a pink handgun are among the illegal weapons the TSA seized at airports in one May weekend.

    Nunchucks are illegal in New York City, and you can't carry them on a plane either. Same goes for hidden stun guns and pink handguns, if you're planning ahead.

    All three were among the items caught at Northeast airports last weekend, the Transportation Security Administration tweeted on Monday. 

    The nunchucks were seized at a LaGuardia checkpoint Sunday, and the man carrying them arrested, TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said on Twitter. 

    The stun gun was hidden in what looked like a seven-inch flashlight; it was caught at Reagan Airport in Washington on Sunday.

    As for the gun, described as a "bright hot pink semi-automatic handgun" and apparently a customized Smith & Wesson, that was found at Baltimore's BWI Airport last Friday, Farbstein said. (It was the second gun found in someone's bag that day.)
