CNN: Glocks "can pass through some metal detectors"

Last night on CNN Paula Zahn, in her infinite wisdom, dropped this little gem of a line out during a story about that Ferrari crash out in CA.

ZAHN: One more piece of the puzzle. Detective also found part of a Glock pistol, a model, made mostly out of plastic and favored by criminals because it can pass through some metal detectors.

Ms. Zahn, just because Bruce Willis in Die Hard 2 says, "That punk pulled a Glock 7 on me! You know what that is? It's a porcelain gun made in Germany. It doesn't show up on you airport X-ray machines, and it cost more than you make here in a month." DOESN'T MAKE IT TRUE!!!

Glocks are over 80% metal and DO show up in X-rays and DO set off metal detectors!!

Here's a pic of a G30 under an X-ray.
