DALLAS (AP) – In the first six months of this year, Transportation Security Administration screeners found 894 guns on passengers or in their carry-on bags. That’s a 30 percent increase over the same period last year.

The TSA set a record in May for the most guns seized in one week — 65 in all, 45 of them loaded and 15 with bullets in the chamber and ready to be fired. That was 30 percent more than the previous record of 50 guns set two weeks earlier.

Of 12 airports with the most guns last year, five are in Texas: Dallas-Fort Worth International, 80 guns; George Bush Intercontinental in Houston, 52; Dallas Love Field, 37; William P. Hobby in Houston, 35, and Austin-Bergstrom International, 33.
