Record Number of People Trying to Board Planes with Guns; TSA Braces for Holiday Travel

By Steve Neavling

No matter how many warnings the TSA issues, people are trying to bring guns onto airplanes at a record rate, Channel3000.com reports.

So far this year, more than 1,930 travelers were found with a gun – the most ever calculated in one year. The number caught with guns all of last year was 1,813.

Expecting 24.6 million travelers during the Thanksgiving period, the TSA is bracing for a surge in people bringing guns in their carry-ons.

The reasons for the influx are varied.

“Some people just aren’t using common sense,” said George Hobica, founder of the travel advice web site Airfarewatchdog.com. “What’s really scary is that eventually some of these will get by TSA and misused.”

TSA spokesman Ross Feinstein said most travelers who are caught with guns claim they forgot they had their weapon.

“Perhaps we need stronger penalties for people who try to bring them, or forget to remove them, in carry-ons,” Hobica said. “That might jog peoples’ memories to not try to bring them on planes.”
