Six loaded guns have been discovered in carry-on luggage at Boston’s Logan International Airport so far this year, according to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA.)
That number matches the same total for calendar year 2013, according to the TSA.
Those numbers were released days after the administration announced that 1,471 loaded firearms in luggage in the entire country, according to the State House News Service.
Last week alone, the TSA discovered 41 firearms, 34 of which were loaded, as well as 16 stun guns, four replica grenades, a 13-inch cane sword and a box cutter concealed in the lining of a carry-on bag.
The TSA, on average, screens about 1.8 million passengers per day, according to the State House News Service.
