Airline passengers in the US caught with loaded guns

Airline passengers in the United States were stopped at the security gates by Transportation Security Administration officials with 69 loaded handguns. Another 8 unloaded guns were also found in carry-on baggage. A number of swords and knives were also found besides 27 stun guns. And that is the tally over just two weeks in July 2013.

 

Carrying firearms and dangerous weapons is of course not allowed in hand carried luggage but with prior approval these items can be packed in checked-in luggage. However, it is advisable to leave these things at home before setting off on a holiday. Here are some TSA suggestions on what to pack to get thru the lines quickly.

 

Wear slip on shoes - as shoes need to go through the xray belt. Avoid wearing jewelry and remove body piercings if possible. Place all liquids in a plastic bag and do not pack any perfume or cream/gel larger than 100ml. Do not wrap any gifts as these may be opened for inspection. Pack all coats and jackets in checked-in luggage as all coats and outerwear have to go through the xray machine. And remember to keep your boarding card and ID with you.
