Atlanta Airport Continues to Hold Record for Most Guns Found

Around 200 guns have been found trying to go through TSA security checkpoints so far this year at the Atlanta Hartsfield Intl. Airport (ATL) in Atlanta, Georgia – the most in the nation. This is however, slightly slower pace than last year’s at ATL. Of those found, 175 of those were loaded, according to the TSA.

Traveling with a gun is allowed if the rules are followed including being packed in a locked case in checked luggage, being unloaded and declared to the airline with proper paperwork. “If it is brought in carry-on baggage, it is a violation of federal law,” said Ryan Buchanan, U. S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia.
