Travelers keep forgetting firearms in their luggage, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) advises.
“The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced on 13 December that security personnel confiscated more than 5,700 firearms at airport security checkpoints in 2021—breaking records for the most firearms detected in a single year, according to Reuters.
“The prior yearly record was 4,400 in 2019.
“According to TSA Administrator David Pekoske, the increase reflects an increase in firearms being carried by Americans overall.”
Talk about being distracted.
