When you're preparing for a flight, it's important to pack everything you'll need for your trip. Also important, though, is making sure you don't have a weapon in your carry-on.
Some people apparently forgot that rule. The Transportation Security Administration said it found 73 firearms in carry-on luggage last week. That's more than any other one-week stretch in TSA history.
Not only that, but nearly all the guns were loaded, and 27 had a round chambered. And that may not even be close to the actual number of guns that made it onto planes.
