Seized guns at airports at all-time record

Tuesday, 24 Jan, 2023 0

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) released its final end of year tally for guns at airports.

TSA officers seized a record-high 6,542 guns in 2022.

The previous record of 5,972 guns at airports was set the year earlier.

“What we see generally is as gun ownership increases, this issue becomes a bigger problem at the checkpoint,” the TSA said.

“It’s troubling and it’s really concerning.”

The TSA screened a total of 761 million passengers last year.

Firearms are allowed only in checked baggage under specific rules.
