Gun in Airports - Atlanta Wins David Walter Banks for The New York Times Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International is the nation's busiest airport and a magnet of sorts for gun-carrying fliers. The New York Times
Across the country, people are increasingly being caught at security checkpoints with firearms in their carry-on bags. Nowhere does this happen more often than at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, the nation’s busiest airport and a magnet of sorts for gun-carrying fliers. Through last week, the Transportation Security Administration had seized 67 guns this year at Hartsfield-Jackson, putting it ahead of last year’s pace and giving the airport a comfortable lead over Dallas-Fort Worth International in its defense of a dubious title. (Not every seizure results in an arrest; the exceptions include some military personnel.) Nationwide, security agents had seized 862 through the first half of 2013, a rate likely to eclipse last year’s record of 1,556.
I've already come up with a sure-fire way to stop this, or at least cut it way way down.
