    Security officials at Heathrow Airport work hard to keep travelers safe. Recently, a man who regularly travels with Toy Story‘s Sheriff Woody at his side to take photos for his son  had the Sheriff’s weapon confiscated at the security checkpoint.

    He posted this photo to Reddit on Thursday and it went viral on Imgur with the caption, “I have travelled the world with Toy Story’s Woody, taking pics for my son. At Heathrow, security just confiscated his ‘weapon.’ Keep the world safe boys[.]”

    Many commenters on the photo were concerned with the security official pointing the Sheriff’s gun directly at himself.

    AZ Central reported, “The department of transport refused to comment on the incident, but a spokesperson did say that airport staff can use their own discretion to confiscate an item they believe may be regarded as a threat.”
