TSA Astonished That People Continue to Bring Guns to Airport in Carry-On Bags

It has become almost too common: Travelers are caught with guns in the carry-on bags.

Even after Sept. 11, when much more innocuous objects were banned from flights, people bring guns to airports, often because they forgot they had the weapon on the them.

WCIV reports that a South Carolina man was arrested after a loaded pistol was found in his carry-on bag.

TSA officials found the Glock .40 caliber pistol at the security checkpoint.

Just this year, the TSA has discovered five firearms at the airport.

“Passengers are responsible for the contents of bags they bring to the checkpoint,” said Mark Howell, TSA spokesman in a prepared statement. “Our advice is to look through bags thoroughly before coming to the airport to make sure there are no illegal or prohibited items.”
