“We don’t want to find a firearm,” Feinstein told Skift. “It slows down the line for everyone.

In a break from the last two years, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is leading perennial front-runner Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport. According to the TSA’s Feinstein, at the end of October 92 guns had been discovered at Dallas as opposed to 74 in Atlanta. Feinstein points out that Atlanta has had an aggressive education program this year to remind flyers how weapons can legally be transported in checked luggage.

Historically, the top five airports for seizures have been in U.S. states with laws that make it easy to take loaded weapons into public places, airports such as Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, and Denver. Although airports such as New York-JFK and Chicago-O’Hare are highly trafficked, they rarely crack the top 20.

Interesting article.

Everybody hates that.

"Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is leading..." - Somehow that doesn't surprise me.

That's kind of like saying that ice is cold, where there's freedom there's also people who don't pay attention and violate rules, not necessarily intentionally but just happens. How many people drive thru active school zones without slowing down enough and wind up violating the speed limit? Same thing with this. Still, no excuse, when you carry a gun you need to pay close attention.
