Toilets no longer a threat, a relieved Congress hears

Americans can sleep a little sounder knowing that toilets are officially off the U.S. controlled-weapons list.

Unclear how or why toilets were ever on the U.S. Munitions List, but once on, it likely took much time, scrutiny and endless meetings to scrub them.
