Loaded Guns Found in Carry-ons at Every Major Tennessee Airport

Loaded guns are found at security checkpoints at every major Tennessee airport during a seven-day period.

From September 13 through September 20, eight guns were found in carry-on bags by agents at McGhee Tyson Airport and in Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga and the Tri Cities according to the Transportation Security Administration.

Firearms are not allowed in carry-on baggage. They can travel in checked baggage, under certain rules.

Passengers who attempt to bring guns onto airplanes in carry-on bags face criminal charges and civil penalties.

Despite a drop in passengers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, TSA officers have found 106 firearms at Tennessee airports year this year. A total of 139 were detected in 2019.
