According to the Transportation Security Administration, 165 firearms were found in carry-on bags in airports over the last two weeks.
TSA officials said of those firearms, 144 were loaded and just under half of those had a round chambered in the weapon.
Cleveland made the list for back to back incidents in early October. Both of the incidents occurred at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
According to the TSA, a traveler brought a loaded 9mm handgun through a security checkpoint on Oct. 2. The next day another traveler brought a loaded .380 handgun through security.
According to the TSA, It is possible to legally bring a firearm with you while you travel, but passengers must make sure they comply with the rules and regulations regarding firearms as they may vary from state to state. More info can be found here.
Officials said the TSA also regularly finds other banned items in passenger's carry-on bags such as ammunition, stun guns and pocket knives.
“Travelers should familiarize themselves with state and local firearm laws for each point of travel prior to departure,” TSA officials said.
