San Francisco-the woman is very concerned about airport security after a weapon in her purse and went through the security unnoticed.

Ashley Montgomery told NBC Bay Area she forgot a stun gun in her handbag when she went to San Francisco International Airport on Tuesday, and didn’t know it was there, until they had embarked, and reached in her bag for her mobile phone charger.

“I don’t normally wear on a regular basis, so I had it in my bag and had entirely forgotten about to get out,” Montgomery said. “What concerns me is that I was able to get by with that and that someone else could get by with something else even worse.”

Montgomery, who sat in the first class of the Los Angeles-bound flight, commented on how close she was to the pilots in the cockpit and how potentially dangerous it could be if stun guns can be carried on unnoticed.

“This is the part that would be a shock for you: The top part here is the button that you press, and this makes it on,” Montgomery explained in the view of the stun gun in a video, NBC reported. “And then the bottom has this very sharp, jagged edges; if you had to use it, it is something … you could get stuck with someone.”

Montgomery said that she loved the fact that security officers had missed the weapon on himself.

“I had no mis-intentions to make or use, so I didn’t want to scare the others,” she said. “I don’t know how I’ve missed, but it was very shocking for me.”
