Loaded handgun found at Nashville airport checkpoint

2 loaded handguns found at Nashville airport checkpoint in one day

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A loaded handgun was discovered by the Transportation Security Administration at the Nashville International Airport Tuesday.

The loaded Beretta was found in a passenger’s carry-on bag around 8 a.m.

The TSA immediately alerted airport police of the incident. Police took possession of the .32 caliber and escorted the passenger out of the checkpoint area.

“Passengers are responsible for the contents of bags they bring to the checkpoint,” said Mark Howell, TSA Regional Spokesperson. “Our advice is to look through bags thoroughly before coming to the airport to make sure there are no illegal or prohibited items.”

Firearms may be transported in checked baggage as long as they are declared to the airline, in a proper carrying case and unloaded.

This is the 40th gun discovered at the security checkpoint by TSA officers at BNA this year.

Last year, 48 guns were found at the airport.
