Airports are reporting a record number of guns were found in carry-on luggage in 2016.

The TSA said 3,391 guns were discovered at checkpoints nationwide – a 28% increase over 2015. Alarmingly, 83% of the guns were loaded.

The airports with the largest number of gun confiscations were George Bush Intercontinental at Houston, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta, Denver International, Dallas/Fort Worth International, and Phoenix Sky Harbor International.

The good news is, gun seizures dropped at JKF LaGuardia and Newark airports.
