1 week 1 hour ago Image from the TSA Instagram account with the following caption: You gouda brie kidding us!? What do cheese and guns have in common? Nuffin except some cheese head forgetting his loaded pistol in his bag. Nacho if he knew but bringing a firearm to the security checkpoint may lead to a civil penalty of up to $13,333 or even an arrest.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This loaded pistol was discovered at a TSA security checkpoint at Central Wisconsin Airport (CWA) last month. Between October 7 and November 3, TSA screened 65 million passengers and found 374 firearms in carry-on bags. Of the 374 firearms discovered, 333 were loaded and 118 had a round chambered.

Did you know if you’re a TSA Pre✓® member and get caught with a firearm during TSA screening that you could lose your status? Don’t lose your benefits and be sure to double…triple check your carry-on before arriving at an airport.  For more info visit: TSA.gov.
