Editor's Note:

Cleveland TV station WKYC reports an elusive and potentially lethal weapon being sold by an Akron man – "brass knuckles” made from a clear plastic called Lexan. The maker claims the material is bulletproof and lighter than brass, and that these $35 "plastic knuckles" will "slip right in with no problems!" to courthouses, schools and airports.

Reporter Tom Meyer demonstrates what this weapon can do to various household items, and that it does, in fact, slip through metal detectors unnoticed. The weapon is not yet on the TSA’s list of banned items, and Cuyahoga County sheriff’s officials say they’ve never heard of it.
