Skift Take

The week before a holiday is bound to have heavier passenger traffic than average, but that doesn’t explain why the TSA found a record number of guns twice in the month of May.

The TSA discovered a record number of firearms in the week ending Friday, May 24. Sixty-five guns were found, beating the previous record of 50 firearms from earlier this month.

Of the 65 firearms, 54 were loaded and 19 had rounds chambered

The most firearms found at any one airport this week was five, which happened at both Dallas/Fort Worth International and Atlanta International.
