TSA stops man with loaded .38 at Charlotte airport

A man was arrested at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport Monday after TSA officers say he attempted to bring a loaded gun on a plane. The woman's name wasn't released.

According to TSA, the incident occurred just after 4 p.m. when a man from Florida was stopped with a loaded.380 caliber handgun.

To date, TSA officers have detected 24 firearms at CLT checkpoints this year.

Individuals who show up with weapons at airport checkpoints cause the checkpoint lane to come to a halt until police arrive and handle the situation.

TSA has details on how to properly travel with a firearm posted on its web site.

The Transportation Security Administration said Thursday the single-week record for the number of firearms discovered in carry-on bags across the country has been broken. Last year, TSA found 54 firearms in total at the airport.

"Firearm possession laws vary by state and locality", the agency said.

Guns can be traveled with, so as long as they are unloaded and locked in a "hard-sided" container in checked baggage only.

Travelers lalso should check with their airline to view their requirements for traveling with firearms and ammunition.
