4,239… Firearms Discovered in Carry On Luggage by TSA in 2018.


Ladies and gentlemen, a PSA from your humble editor..

Please check your firearms at the door while traveling.

You cannot fly while carrying a firearm or with one in your accessible carry-on baggage.

According to the TSA, in 2018, a record-setting 4,239 firearms were discovered in carry-on bags across the country. 

Firearms must be unloaded and locked in a hard-sided container and transported as checked baggage only.  

Firearms parts, including firearm frames and receivers, are prohibited in all carry-on baggage and must also be placed in checked baggage. YourErie.com


Use a lockable case like in the title image and check your firearms under the plane using the process for the airline you are flying with.

Thank you.
