Loaded Guns Found At Checkpoints At NC Airports

Piedmont Triad International Airport and Charlotte Douglas International Airport made the Transportation Security Administration's most recent list of airports where people had guns in their carryons!

Officials said a 36-year-old man was arrested after the loaded.380 caliber Kel-Tec pistol was found in a carry-on around 8:45 a.m.

"Dangerous and prohibited items can cause delays at the security checkpoint", said TSA Spokesperson Michael McCarthy.

Safety is the first concern of TSA, he said, having guns in bags that are traveling with you on the aircraft is risky to other travelers and can be easily mistaken as an intentional attempt to bring a prohibited item onto an aircraft.

Few details have been released, but officials said the unidentified male passenger was arrested my Massachusetts State Police after the gun was located.

During the last week of July, TSA agents found 96 guns in carry-on bags nationwide.

In addition to potential criminal charges, passengers who bring firearms to a checkpoint face civil penalties from TSA.
