A record number of guns – The U.S. Transportation Security Administration seized a record number of guns in 2014. The 2,000 guns found as of December 1 include this gun at LaGuardia Airport.
Ignorance isn't a defense – Many travelers claim they forgot that their guns, like this one seized at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, were in their carry-on luggage. They can still face criminal charges.
Packing guns in checked bags – There are rules for checking your weapons, including declaring them to your airline when you check in. A Queens man was caught with an undeclared stash of weapons in his checked bags at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
Guns and other goods – The TSA says a woman attempted to smuggle a gun and marijuana through Kennedy International Airport security inside baby wipes, coffee, floor dusting sheets and other household products.
No gun replicas, either! – Products that mimic guns, like this purse with a gun design, aren't allowed as carry-on items, either. This replica was flagged by the Transportation Security Administration at the Norfolk, Virginia, airport in 2011.
