TSA Week in Review: 30 Firearms Discovered This Week (27 Were Loaded)


Loaded Firearm (LAX)

30 Firearms Discovered This Week – Of the 30 firearms, 27 were loaded and eight had rounds chambered. See a complete list and more photos at the bottom of this post.

Starter Pistol (BWI)
Starter Pistol (BWI)
On Your Mark… - A starter pistol loaded with six blanks was discovered in a carry-on bag at Baltimore (BWI). Sure it shoots blanks, but it looks like the real deal, makes a loud bang, and could cause a lot of angst if somebody pulled it out in the cabin of an aircraft, which TSA cannot permit.

(L-R) Gearshift Grenade (SEA), Ceramic Grenade (HNL), Lighter Grenade (LAS), Inert Grenade (LAS), Novelty Grenade (DAL), Practice Grenade (CAK), Airsoft Grenades (SJC)
(L-R) Gearshift Grenade (SEA), Ceramic Grenade (HNL), Lighter Grenade (LAS), Inert Grenade (LAS), Novelty Grenade (DAL), Practice Grenade (CAK), Airsoft Grenades (SJC)
Inert Ordnance and Grenades etc. - We continue to find inert hand grenades and other weaponry on a weekly basis. Please keep in mind that if an item looks like a realistic bomb, grenade, mine, etc., it is prohibited - real or not. When these items are found at a checkpoint or in checked baggage, they can cause significant delays in checkpoint screening. I know they are cool novelty items, but you cannot bring them on a plane. Read here and here on why inert items cause problems.

Flashbang Grenade (PDX)

M60 Igniter (SAN)
M60 Igniter (SAN)
  • Ten live/inert/novelty/replica grenades were discovered this week. Six were discovered in carry-on bags at Seattle (SEA), Dallas (DAL), Las Vegas (LAS), Honolulu (HNL), Phoenix (PHX), and Portland (PDX). The other four were discovered in checked bags at Akron Canton (CAK), Las Vegas (LAS), Washington Dulles (IAD), and San Jose (SJC). The grenade at PDX was a live flashbang grenade and the grenade at IAD was a live smoke grenade.
  • Two battery-charged initiators were discovered in a carry-on bag at Minneapolis (MSP).
  • An empty M60 igniter was discovered on a key ring at San Diego (SAN). Pro Tip – While these do make interesting key rings, they can also be used in harmful way. So… best not to bring them.

Stun Guns Discovered at (L-R) LAS, MCO, MDW, MDW, SMF, BNA, BOI
Stun Guns Discovered at (L-R) LAS, MCO, MDW, MDW, SMF, BNA, BOI

Stun Guns –14 stun guns were discovered this week in carry-on bags around the nation. Two were discovered at Denver (DEN), two more were discovered at Chicago Midway (MDW), and the others were found at Nashville (BNA), Boise (BOI), Columbia (CAE),  Detroit (DTW), Northwest Florida Beaches (ECP), Las Vegas (LAS),  Orlando (MCO), Phoenix (PHX), San Francisco (SFO), and Sacramento (SMF).


Items in the Strangest Places –It’s important to examine your bags prior to traveling to ensure no prohibited items are inside. If a prohibited item is discovered in your bag, you could be cited and quite possibly arrested by local law enforcement. Here are a few examples from this week where prohibited items were found in strange places.

  • A credit card knife was discovered at Los Angeles (LAX).

What Not to Say at an Airport – Statements like these not only delay the people who said them but can also inconvenience many other passengers if the checkpoint or terminal has to be evacuated:

  • While checking his bag at Philadelphia (PHL) a passenger stated: “Take care of my bag, it might blow up.”

Miscellaneous Prohibited Items - In addition to all of the other prohibited items we find weekly, our Officers also regularly find firearm components, realistic replica firearms, bb and pellet guns, Airsoft guns, brass knuckles, ammunition, batons, and a lot of sharp pointy things…

30 Firearms Discovered This Week – Of the 30 firearms, 27 were loaded and eight had rounds chambered.
You can travel with your firearms in checked baggage, but they must first be declared to the airline. You can go here for more details on how to properly travel with your firearms. Firearm possession laws vary by state and locality. Travelers should familiarize themselves with state and local firearm laws for each point of travel prior to departure.

Unfortunately these sorts of occurrences are all too frequent which is why we talk about these finds. Sure, it’s great to share the things that our officers are finding, but at the same time, each time we find a dangerous item, the throughput is slowed down and a passenger that likely had no ill intent ends up with a citation or in some cases is even arrested. The passenger can face a penalty as high as $7,500.00. This is a friendly reminder to please leave these items at home. Just because we find a prohibited item on an individual does not mean they had bad intentions, that's for the law enforcement officer to decide. In many cases, people simply forgot they had these items.

*In order to provide a timely weekly update, I compile my data from a preliminary report. The year-end numbers will vary slightly (increase) from what I report in the weekly updates. However, any monthly, midyear, or end-of-year numbers TSA provides on this blog or elsewhere will not be estimates.

If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you check out our post highlighting the dangerous, scary, and downright unusual items our officers found in 2012. The 2011 list can be found here.

How many of these "discovered" items were the result of TSA conducting drills on its checkpoints? Given the high volume and the low press coverage of these incidents, it seems dubious that these are all actual threats. The fact that your reports only show that your people found them and provide no context behind that, makes it unclear as to whether or not these are something to be concerned about. For all we know, these are just the drills that TSA is conducting publicized to justify its existence.

This is hard to believe that by this time, people are packing their baggage with these prohibited items !
Are they trying to sneak through with this stuff or should have they stayed in bed asleep ???

God bless the TSA as we celebrate our Independence. Because of their selfless sacrifice, we may safely celebrate many more. Their professional Officers represent the very best of American values. To the critics: opposition is always a sign you're on the right track.

I find it really hard to understand why anyone would board an airplane with a loaded weapon, round chambered. Do you realize how disastrous it would be if that weapon were to discharge at 34,000 feet and exit through the fuselage much less a hit fellow passenger or a child on board or while in the airport terminal? What are you gun owners thinking? Or not thinking? I respect the right to legally own and carry a weapon. I have a concealed carry permit. I also expect gun owners to be responsible for gun safety. This type of irresponsibility in gun control gives all a black eye.

None, the items you see in these reports are items brought to the airports by passengers and are discovered either in carryon bags, or checked baggage, or on the individuals person.

Why aren't the hand held metal detecting wands used anymore? I flew from an airport that only had the walk through metal detectors and I happened to set it off. That forced me to receive a full body pat down that seemed excessive. I guess you guys call it "meeting resistance" but it was very invasive.

If you used the hand held metal detectors, you could have figured out what the problem was without touching highly sensitive areas. Also, it would have told me what was setting off the metal detector so I could avoid wearing that in the future.

Finally some acknowledgement of user comments/suggestions posted here, in the news story:

http://apnews.myway.com/article/20130703/DA79PF2G4.html

So excited to see, and so frustrating to know that feedback has been generally overlooked, that I'm posting the URL without yet having read much of it.

Wouldn't it be good to see changes. As the story notes, reaction to guns found was a surprise to one official/person.

And it seems people are arrested for having a gun, depending upon the airport. Please read it yourself

Context is very important here. the clarification from the blog team stated "discovered either in carryon bags, or checked baggage, or on the individuals person."

So, how many of these items were found in checked luggage? How many items were confiscated due to not being properly declared? Key word being " properly".

GSOLTSO said...

Anon sez - "So, how many of these items were found in checked luggage? How many items were confiscated due to not being properly declared? Key word being " properly"."

I do not have a breakdown on those numbers, but the majority I have seen are encountered at the checkpoint in carryon baggage (that is not a scientific response, merely an observation based on my personal experience in our checkpoints). As for "properly declared", any of our readers that are interested in transporting firearms in checked luggage with them when they fly, please visit our page here for the published rules on how to do so:

This is a logical fallacy, and one so easy to debunk as well. For instance, I say the TSA is security theater. Your opposition to that view would mean, by your logic, that I am on the right track with my view. Clearly you do not mean to say this, so, the above statement is false. (And even if you agree with me, the statement is still false. Opposition means squat.)

Just curious, TSA claims that any found firearm is turned over to local PD for custody and investigation. So how is it that TSA has access to these weapons for the social media pictures TSA is wasting taxpayers money on?

Second point, what is the budget for all of TSA's blogging, social media, and other non-security function activities?

Seems like the American taxpayer is being taken advantaged of by TSA when sequestration cut backs are being taken all across government. How can TSA justify the expense of government employees, government computers systems, and all of the time wasted on social media? Aren't screening operations more important?

Oh one last thing.

Using your last published failure detection rate, per http://blog.tsa.gov/2010/12/70-detection-failure-rate-being.html , the more interesting headline for this article would be:

"About 70 Firearms Were Not Discovered This Week (63 Were Loaded) and Flew Without Incident".

3) The prohibited items on this site highlight the public finds by TSA. What most critics ignore is the obviouis deterrent effect TSA has on acts of terrorism. No succesful attacks since 9/11 speaks for itself.

The TSA is similar to my "tiger repellent rock". Ever since I've started carrying it, I haven't seen any tigers. Therefore it must work. Either that or maybe their aren't tigers or terrorists around every corner like certain agencies want everybody to believe.

What is the point of listing all of the guns you found if none of these people were charged with terrorism related crimes? Keeping guns off of planes is the most basic part of your job. I don't get a press release when I do the bare minimum of tasks at my job.

What most TSA boosters ignore is the obvious fact that a significant amount of *UN*detected and loaded guns from last week flew without incident.

Hey TSA,

Can you share newer failure rate information than the "70 percent failure rate for TSA to detect guns and knives passing through airport checkpoints" in http://blog.tsa.gov/2010/12/70-detection-failure-rate-being.html ?

If you are still anywhere close to that failure rate, more loaded guns are flying than are being detected.

If TSA was a deterrent, which I would argue TSA is not, we would not see 30 or so guns plus assorted other items being confiscated each week.

TSA is a joke.

TSA security is a joke since no one who works at the airport is screened.

Hey Bob, are you gonna post about the 2 inch USB flash drive your TSA PR buddies confiscated and are crowing as a "good catch" because this USB flash drive happens to be a novelty flash drive shaped like a tiny 2 inch toy gun?

Check it out and make sure it isn't a cap gun if you wanna, but stealing, er, confiscating it (TSA's wording) was completely unnecessary.

Also, who went home with it? Or was it put in the bin going to the state surplus store? Maybe the actual owner who spent his hard earned money on it in the first place can find it and pay for his own property again, huh? Cuz that's the America the TSA wants, right?

Toy guns are not threats to planes. USB flash drives shaped like 2 inch toy guns are not threats to planes either.

Sorry, you can't have it both ways. Either your opposition to my statements means I am correct, or it doesn't.

"2) "Security Theater"....really!?! Come up with an original thought."

Yes, because that's what it is. It is policies and procedures put in place to make it appear that the government is doing something when, in fact, they do absolutely nothing to enhance security and, some would argue, actually hurt it be taking resources away from the real LEOs out there trying to keep us safe (not that the FBI and others have done much in that regard of late, but they're infinitely more qualified than TSA is in that regard.)

If you think a bullet going through the fuselage is going to cause a sudden and massive depressurization sucking things out of the airplane then I suggest you turn off the TV. That is not what happens. A hole even much larger than a bullet would only cause a small loss of cabin pressure. No rush of air, not sucking things out, no big deal.

You don't have to believe me but trust me, I know for a fact what happens. Go ask an aircraft mechanic.

The question was: "Just curious, TSA claims that any found firearm is turned over to local PD for custody and investigation. So how is it that TSA has access to these weapons for the social media pictures TSA is wasting taxpayers money on?"

The answer is: TSA has to keep track of the "ITEMS" found, therfore they need to photograph the "ITEM" for evidence.

Weapons such as firearms and pepper spray should remain prohibited to carry on flight.

Good job TSA for keeping our nation safe and allowing us to travel with peace in mind.

Anonymous said...

Keeping explosives off airplanes is definitely a valid reason to employ TSA at our airports. So is their deterrent effect on terrorist planners.

Since 9/11 we have had zero successful terrorist acts upon aviation which originated from a US airport.

"Real" LEOs do not have the high level of education, training, and experience TSA Officers do; especially as it pertains to TSAs counter-terrorism mission.

TSA is a deterrent to terrorist planning attacks. The idiots who bring guns to the checkpoint either can't read signs or simply go through life oblivious. TSA can't prevent stupid.

"TSA security is a joke since no one who works at the airport is screened."

Based on what evidence? Airport workers are routinely screened.

Next time you fly, take time and thank a TSA Officer. They deserve it.

Why, oh why, would anyone spend good money on a low-quality reproduction katana (can't see the entire blade so it might not actually be a "katana") in the first place?

As far as I can tell by the blade, this is one of those 'hang it on the wall' tourist-trap blades. Single type of metal, not laminated steel, mechanically polished. Cheap junk.

However, it is in a cardboard box, so my guess is that the tourist who bought it thought it too valuable (right..) to pack as checked baggage.

I recently read an article about cell phones with stun capability. How will these be handled at the checkpoints? They are working cell phones. So if someone is carrying one of these devices, will there cell phone be confiscated?

Susan Richart said...

" "Real" LEOs do not have the high level of education, training, and experience TSA Officers do; especially as it pertains to TSAs counter-terrorism mission."

Oh, my aching head. Where do these people come from?

Let's see: TSA training = 100 hours

NYPD Police Academy = 6 months
LA Police Academy = 6 months
Dallas PD = 35 weeks

RE: NYC Potential cops must have 60 hours from an accredited school of higher ed or 2 years in the armed services and pass an extremely rigorous exam and meet high physical standards. After graduation there is continuing training.

Regarding counter-terrorism, the NYPD has a counter-terrorism unit that is the equal of almost anything the US government can offer.

Failure to post this comment which meets this blog's TOS will result in a complaint being filed with the DHS OIG. And, of course, I've made a screen shot.

So, tell my what high level of education is required of an entry-level TSAgent, and what highly specialized counter-terrorism training do they receive? Education requirement, high-school diploma or GED. Training provided, way too little time in a classroom learning procedures they can't even follow once they hit the floor.

"TSA is a deterrent to terrorist planning attacks"

No, they aren't. See, I have this rock that is a deterrent to tiger attacks. Since getting it, I've never been attacked by a tiger. And before you say "tigers are rare in your neighborhood," I live in central Ohio. With the exotic animal incidents we've had in the past, tigers are less rare here than terrorists are ;)

Based on what evidence? How about sitting for a couple of hours on numerous occasions watching airport workers streaming through employee access doors without any screening of any kind. Airport workers entering with multiple 2 liter bottles of beverages, suitcases, and all manner of things with ZERO screening. Airport employees not properly scanning their card and walking in right behind the person in front of them.

If airport employees are not screened 100% of the time then nothing else TSA is doing is worth the effort.

The airport security HOLE is big enough to drive a 777 through.

TSA is not a deterrent and I agree TSA can't prevent stupid, just watch TSA employees for proof.

That is actually a fairly simple answer, prior to taking the firearm from the area it is discovered, they simply lay it out for documentation (pictures). Our local LEOs at GSO do this anytime we have a firearm encounter - the TSO never even has to touch the firearm, as the LEO is tasked with it. Sorry, I missed this response earlier.
