California AG Kamala Harris Holds News Conference On Gun Violence

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The Transportation Security Administration reports loaded firearms were found in carry-on bags at checkpoints at airports in Gulfport and Jackson this month.

The latest incidents occurred Monday at the Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport where authorities found a loaded .32 caliber revolver in a passenger’s carry-on bag about 6:15 a.m. The TSA says the 62-year-old woman was flying from Jackson to Houston, Texas.

About six hours later, a loaded .32 caliber firearm was found in the carry-on bag of a 42-year-old man from Yazoo City who was flying to Washington D.C.

The two were arrested.

On July 13, the TSA says a 33-year-old man from Saucier was arrested at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport when workers found a loaded .38 revolver in his carry-on bag. The man was flying to Dallas.
