No, You Still Can’t Bring Your Gun on a Plane

Bloomberg (10/11/2019)
  • Across the US, the number of guns confiscated by airport TSA has jumped by 92% since 2014.
  • The 10 major airports with the highest gun seizure rates are in states with lax concealed-carry laws (eg Georgia, Texas).
  • The increase coincides with some states loosening their concealed-carry laws (people may think these laws also apply to airports).
  • Currently, 40 states have passed or allow no-permit concealed carry.
  • It remains legal to properly secure a gun without bullets in checked-in luggage.
