. . . but keep an eye on for those oxymoronic “responsible gun owners.” From The Roanoke Times:
As reported by Fortune back in July, nationwide the TSA had by that month seized more than 3,000 firearms at airports, at a rate of about 17 per day. Should that keep up through New Year’s Eve, the TSA will confiscate more than 6,000 guns, easily surpassing the record of 5,972 set in 2021.
Enough people have used the “I forgot it was there” excuse that TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein vented in a sarcastic July 1 tweet, “It’s time people stop claiming to have forgotten they had a loaded gun with them. They sure know where their cellphones are — just not their deadly weapons.”
