TSA picked up record 65 guns in carry-on bags last week [View all]

Source: UPI

The Transportation Security Administration found a record 65 guns in carry-on luggage last week, just a few weeks after setting a record of 50 firearms found.

A passenger at Salt Lake City received a pat-down after an anomaly was detected during advanced imaging technology screening. Officers discovered a fully loaded .22 caliber firearm strapped to his prosthetic leg. The passenger was arrested on a state charge of carrying a concealed weapon in a secure area.

Atlanta and Dallas-Fort Worth airports tied for 5 guns each. In Atlanta, three were loaded, and one had rounds chambered. At DFW, three firearms were loaded and two had rounds chambered.

In addition, TSA agents found 12 stun guns, inert grenades, realistic replicas, razor blades, ammunition, and "a lot of sharp pointy things." An unloaded musket was recovered at Orlando International Airport.
