Be Careful If You’re Packing For Travel
It’s not clear why people do this, but a record number of people had their guns confiscated at airports
because they had them in carry-on bags and got nabbed by the TSA at security checkpoints last year.
Now, who doesn’t know you can’t carry a pistol on a commercial airliner? This has been the law for
many years, and reports of celebrities and other prominent people getting sacked for shooting irons
in their briefcases, purses and other carry-on bags has publicized this problem.
If you travel, get a simple hard-sided locking case like this one from Liberty that holds a small to mid-size pistol
like Workman’s Kimber Compact Custom. Once it’s locked, stick it inside your luggage.
You’ve got to check your hardware, unloaded and placed in a lockable case placed inside your luggage,
and declare that gun at the ticket counter so TSA can check it through. Insider Online has been doing
this for more than two decades.
According to Fox News, the TSA reported in late January that agents found 3,957 firearms in carry-on
bags last year. That was up from the 3,391 guns seized in 2016. And here’s the really bad news.
Eighty-four percent of those guns were loaded, and 34.8 percent had rounds in the chamber! Just how stupid is that?
On the plus side, of the millions of people who fly with firearms, this number of careless folks hardly amounts
to a blip on the radar. But it still shouldn’t be happening, and all it takes to prevent embarrassment is to check
your bag before you head for the airport.
If there’s a gun inside, take it out, unload it, stick it in a lockable case and put it inside your suitcase.
