People carry guns to airports. In fact, some airline staff try to take loaded firearms onboard! Whether you are pro or against civilians with firearms, I prefer for my air hostess not to take a gun onboard.
In 2018, Southwest Airlines flight attendant Crystal Reven was found with a loaded firearm in her carry-on luggage! But she is not alone. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport had the most firearm discoveries last year. TSA agents found 298 guns.
Travellers flying out of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport had the highest passenger to gun ratio with 93 passengers trying to bring 93 guns onto flights in 2018.
TSA screeners found 4,239 firearms at airports across America last year, a 7 percent increase over the previous year.
How Many Were Loaded?
An astounding 86 percent!
