Gun Found in Carry-on Bag at Huntington Airport

A Florida man was caught with a loaded handgun in his carry-on bag Wednesday at Huntington Tri-State Airport. The Transportation Security Administration detected a .40-caliber handgun loaded with six bullets through an X-ray machine. This is the fifth gun caught at the airport’s checkpoint this year, which TSA says is more than twice as many as were caught in 2018. The man was detained for questioning and the gun was confiscated. He said he forgot that he had his loaded gun in his backpack.
