Atlanta was in the news for a big security breach and gun-smuggling scheme, as we posted here last month, Biggest Security Breach In Years – AK 47 On Delta Flight? Unfortunately, Atlanta is in the news again tonight for the another big breach by a FAA employee who was arrested after bypassing TSA security on Tuesday and flying from Atlanta to NYC with a loaded gun in his carry-on baggage, reportedly.

Another Security Breach In ATL – FAA Employee Arrested With Gun In Carry-On

As reported by WSB-TV2, Atlanta, “The employee on Tuesday used a badge to gain access to a secure area of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and bypassed TSA screening, officials said. FAA Administrator Michael Huerta ordered the suspension of a program allowing safety inspectors to bypass security screenings, FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said in a statement.”

This is just another scary example of failure of security protocols in Atlanta.

Bottom Line

This story is still developing and we will wait to hear what, if any explanation is given for this serious breach in security at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson. And what might change to eliminate these types of breaches. What do you think should be done?
