NEW YORK, NY – Not all Big Mac’s are created equal. But one Big Mac is not something to eat, unless, of course, you want to eat lead.

Police say a contractor found the Mac-11 subcompact machine pistol while working on renovations in an office in an international terminal.

Koran Air, Turkish Airlines, and Air France are among the international carriers that use terminal one at JFK.

It’s not something you forgot was in your pocket when you went to work. That’s why investigators are in a hurry to figure out where it came from, and why.
