Howell said, “Before you go through the airport, do a five minute sweep of all your belongings to make sure you don't have those guns or prohibited items in your bag.”
A passenger caught with the gun will likely face criminal charges. The FBI will even be called.
The TSA can assess a fine of up to $13,000 dollars.
So, the TSA set up a table to spread the message. If you are going to bring a gun on your trip, you need to follow the rules.
“We just want to make sure that it's done the safest way possible and that it's stored underneath the aircraft,” Howell said. “Obviously we don't want it accessible during flight.”
In addition to the TSA rules, different airlines have different forms for declaring a firearm in your checked bag.
