Look… in that man's bag! It’s a gun… no, it’s a knife… no, it’s both! And it’s not allowed in a carry-on!
“Maybe this passenger was on the fence about bringing a knife to a gun fight,” the TSA quipped on its blog.
The 6-inch gun-shaped weapon was discovered on August 6 and taken from the passenger.
More information about the passenger who tried to bring on the knife was not immediately available, but TSA revealed on its blog that during the week of August 5 – 11, they screened 17.7 million passengers, and the most common weapons they discovered were firearms. During that week, TSA found 77 firearms in carry-on bags, 66 of which were loaded and 28 had a round chambered.
