In the latest incident, an Alexandria, Virginia, man tried to bring a .38-caliber handgun loaded with seven bullets into his flight.

Officials said the number of guns seized at the airport is skyrocketing.

Reagan National Airport’s TSA Federal Security Director Scott T. “We’ve caught more guns in the first seven months of this year than in any other full calendar year,” Johnson said. “The most common excuse we hear is that someone forgot they had their gun. That’s just not acceptable.

And let me be clear that even if you have a permit to carry a concealed van, you can’t bring it on your flight. Bringing the loaded gun to the checkpoint is careless and an accident is waiting to happen. If you have a firearm, you need to know where it is at all times.”
