A Worrisome Tally: Firearms Being Found at Airports

As a Forbes writer on In Homeland Security puts it, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is “setting a dubious record, for the number of firearms discovered in carry-on baggage at airport security checkpoints.”

“As of August of this year,” IHS advises, “(TSA) officers had found 1,898 firearms in 2015 alone. TSA is still collecting data from September, but I counted 207 firearms reported so far on the TSA Blog, bringing the annual total to over 2,100. And we’ve still got another quarter of the year to go. Way to go, America?!?”
