Cleveland Hopkins

Guns, grenades and other weapons to leave home

I spent a lot of time chatting with TSA folks last week while working on an article about guns and other prohibited items travelers keep trying to take through airport security checkpoints.

To be honest, it gave me nightmares.

Especially after a TSA spokesperson sent me a photo of a shipment of snakes discovered at one airport (I didn’t dare open that attachment) and this photo of a display board of “relinquished” weapons.

I know of two airports – Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport – that have exhibits like this at their security checkpoints.

Anyone know of others?
