A gun designed to look like a pen was confiscated from a traveler at Orlando International Airport.

The gun, when operational, can fire a .22 caliber round.

The TSA told WESH 2 News that the weapon was found in an unidentified passenger’s carry-on bag at an airport security checkpoint on Dec. 30.

“The item was surrendered,” a TSA spokesman said.

The TSA allowed the passenger to continue to fly. No arrest was made.

Sources told the WESH 2 News that the gun was a family heirloom and was inoperable.

Still, the TSA has the authority to issue a civil penalty of $11,000 for anyone who brings a dangerous or prohibited item to the checkpoint.
