WASHINGTON — It’s been nearly eight years since the infamous Sept. 11 attacks, yet people continue to bring guns to the airport.

The latest report from the Transportation Security Administration shows that 23 firearms were found at U.S. airport checkpoints from May 25-31 alone.

Additionally, during that period, seven passengers were arrested for suspicious behavior or fraudulent travel documents and there were 27 incidents that resulted in “checkpoint closure, terminal evacuation or sterile area breach”, the TSA reported.

We reported here earlier this year that in 2008,   833 firearms were confiscated at airport checkpoints, up  nearly 10 percent from 2007.

What’s it going to take to get the message out: Travelers, Bring Your iPods, Leave Your Guns at Home!”
