In the first six-months of 2017, a total of 19 firearms were caught. Another year on pace to set a record.
"That's crazy, I mean they have these security things in place hopefully they would catch at least a couple of those guns," Derrick Reed said.
"There's plenty of signage and they should take responsibility for their firearms," said Caitlin Rayman.
Travelers pass multiple signs on the way through security listing prohibited items, and guns are right at the top. However, when the x-ray machine picks up the weapon, we're told most people claim they forgot it was there. An excuse that doesn’t fly with the TSA.
"I think it's a little ridiculous,” Cosgrove said. “Hopefully you know if you're carrying something dangerous with you, especially if it's a loaded weapon."
"My opinion, I don't know how you can mistakenly put that there, but I can't speak for them, I can only speak for myself," said Reed.
"I think responsible gun owners know that when and where their weapon is at all times," Cosgrove said.
If you're caught with a gun in your carry-on bag you could face criminal charges and a hefty fine.
