The TSA has published their 2013 Year End Review and in the process, have named their top five airports for "guns discovered."
The geographical layout covers the South (Atlanta), Texas (kind of a no-brainer), Phoenix and Denver. Here's the breakdown:
Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta snags a dubious "win" at number 1 with 111 discovered.
Dallas Fort Worth comes in at number 2 with 96 guns.
George Bush International, Houston clocks in at 68 guns taken making it number 3.
Phoenix is bringing up the rear at number 4 with 66 guns and Denver is 5 with 51 guns confiscated in 2013.
The TSA also confiscated thousands of ninja like "throwing stars" along with a "retirement gag gift made to look like an explosive device" taken off an unwary passenger in Florida (imagine the laughs that would have set off at the nursing home!). Various other stockpiles of "black explosive powder," inert mines, knives, training weaponry including an inert "suicide vest" and other fun stuff was found.
What we've never been able to get the TSA to clarify is what the hell happens to the people who try to bring this weaponry on board? Apparently, the weaponry is confiscated and the perps just go on their merry way--with a stern talking to from TSA officials. We're not even sure if trying to sneak a ninja throwing star or an AK-47 onboard a passenger airline gets you on the famed "No Fly List."
