PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A man was arrested after TSA officers say they found a loaded gun in his carry-on bag.
TSA says the .32 caliber handgun was spotted in an Ohio man’s carry-on bag as it went through the X-ray machine Saturday. The gun was loaded with seven bullets, the TSA says.
Allegheny County Police were called in and confiscated the gun.
Even people with concealed firearm permits aren’t allowed to bring guns on planes. The TSA says travelers are allowed to bring unloaded firearms in checked baggage if they are properly packaged and declared at check-in.
