Last week (Week of July 22-28), “TSA discovered 74 firearms this week in carry-on bags around the nation. Of the 74 firearms discovered, 65 were loaded and 29 had a round chambered.” They also discovered two “inert grenades” in “carry on bags at MLI and PHL”. That’s just last week!!
All I can say is: what the bloody hell?!!
In terms of utility to society, I had always rated the TSA as somewhere between a box of discarded toilet paper and Pokemon Go but looking at the things they discover in just one week, I am beyond chagrined.
PS I still recommend everyone to get Global Entry.
