Global Entry Revocation

Tue Apr 22, 2014 8:38 pm

I was recently stopped at TSA screening because I had three unloaded pistol magazines in my carry-on luggage. It was totally my mistake but it happened none-the-less. TSA wrote down all the expected information, took photos, called a couple of supervisors and the airport police to look at the mags. They eventually did let me check the bag, including the magazines, after they escorted me outside security.

My question is, will this violation of TSA carry-on rules lead to an automatic revocation of my Global Entry status?

Thanks

This strikes me as being about as dangerous as having a empty bottle with a capacity of more than 3 ounces in your carry-on. Paranoid States of America.

I don't think so. Had they been loaded or had there been a weapon, the case would be rather different. Having empty magazines, at least in my mind, is not a big deal. I suppose there's a chance they'll flag you for trying to clear via PreCheck in the future and boot you into the standard screening lanes, but I wouldn't think your GE membership itself and the ability to use it clearing CBP will be affected. If they don't contact you in the next couple of weeks, I'd say you're in the clear. Good luck!

Thanks for the encouragement. The TSA regs now state very clearly that magazines are not allowed in carry-on luggage but hopefully they have some wiggle room to be lenient.

No. However, any violations of US Customs and Immigration regulations -- including false or misleading declarations, or importing restricted items -- will result in a loss of Global Entry privileges.
Live life to the fullest.

Thanks for the info.

In my case there was no violation of US Customs regulations but in reference to the how CBP handles violations of TSA rules is this a CBP policy or is it rather arbitrary based on the circumstances. Are you aware of any reference to TSA or CBP regs that might apply.

Thank you for your help.
