First, it’s encouraging to see that some TSA agents are actually doing their job. Second, it’s amazing how many stupid people there are in the world. Firearms have been banned from carry-on luggage for over a decade, and yet there are some who, for reasons that defy logic and common sense, think they can still take their firearms in their carry-on luggage.

The most recent weekly report from the TSA shows that 58 firearms were discovered in carry-on bags at U.S. airports, including two handguns at Sacramento International Airport.

A 22.-caliber handgun was recovered Feb. 27 and a .380-caliber weapon was found Feb. 28 at Sacramento International by the Transportation Security Administration. Only the .380 was loaded.

Of the 58 firearms discovered during the week of Feb. 27 to March 5 at the nation’s airports, 54 were loaded and 21 had a round chambered. Passengers can travel with firearms in checked baggage, but they just first be declared to the airline, according to the TSA.
