73 guns found in a week at US airports

The USA's Transportation Security Administration agents say they found 73 guns in bags passengers tried to carry on planes in the March 6-12 week.

Some 66 guns were loaded and 27 had a round chambered.

It's nothing new, apparently.

“In addition to all of the other prohibited items we find weekly in carry-on bags, our officers also regularly find firearm components, realistic replica firearms, bb and pellet guns, airsoft guns, brass knuckles, ammunition, batons, stun guns, small pocketknives,” the TSA said.
