Columbus Airport Screener Finds Loaded Handgun
A loaded Glock pistol was confiscated Tuesday morning by a TSA screener at Port Columbus. The gun was found in a carry-on bag of a Loveland, Ohio man.
The TSA called airport authority police who responded, confiscated the gun, loaded with nine rounds, and cited the man on a state weapons charge. The man was allowed to catch his flight to Chicago â€” minus the gun and ammunition.
Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein says the find is not an isolated incident.
â€œUnfortunately we do find somewhere in the neighborhood of five to seven handguns at checkpoints per day across the country,â€ Farbstein says.
â€œPeople often say that they forgot it was in their carry-on bag and our position on that is, if you are a gun owner, you should know where your handgun is at all times,â€ Farbstein says.
