ATLANTA (AP) -- Authorities said Atlanta's airport has once again been leading the nation in the number of guns found in carry-on bags.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Transportation Security Administration officers have found 92 guns so far this year. They found a total of 109 last year.
A TSA spokesman said 9mm pistols were the most common guns found at checkpoints. He said they're usually found in clothing at the bottom of a bag.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has previously been the airport with the most confiscated, but Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport topped it last year.
The TSA has launched a campaign to teach travelers how to legally travel with guns on commercial flights. Howell said they don't want to infringe on rights, but they don't want the guns accessible during a flight.
