The TSA has released updated numbers on guns found in carry-on luggage last week throughout the country. I was astounded at how many people still try to bring a loaded gun onto a plane and think that they will get it through security. Geez, I am worried about getting through security with all my liquids without a hassle. Can you imagine!
TSA Firearms Confiscations
Thanksgiving week, the TSA reported finding 32 guns trying to go through security in carry-on luggage. 24 of them were loaded and 7 had rounds chambered. Really!?
Take a look at which airports had the most firearm confiscations:
You are allowed to check a gun as long as you declare it to the airline. I hope that these incidences were due to people who have never flown before and therefore are oblivious and not people who have bad intentions trying to bring a weapon onto a plane!
People caught trying to bring a gun in their carry-on are subject to a fine up to $7,500.
Thank you to the TSA for their hard work finding these weapons before they boarded a plane!
