TSA found 30 guns in carry-on luggage this week at airports across the nation. 27 of them were loaded. 8 of them had rounds in their chambers.
13 stun guns were also found: 2 in Denver, 2 in Chicago Midway, 1 in Nashville, 1 in Boise, 1 in Columbia, 1 in Detroit, 1 in Northwest Florida Beaches, 1 in Las Vegas, 1 in Orlando, 1 in Phoenix, 1 in San Francisco and 1 in Sacramento. All were in carry-on luggage.
A live flashbang grenade was found in Phoenix and a live smoke grenade was found at Washington-Dulles. A credit card knife was found at LAX. Fireworks were found in carry-on luggage at six different airports. Brass knuckles were found at LAX.
You can travel with firearms in checked baggage but they must be declared to the airline when checking the baggage.
It amazes me how stupid people are to try and get this stuff on airplanes. Some of them are cited. some arrested and some banned from ever flying again.
I fly almost every week for business. It is good to know that TSA is doing its job.
