The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has detailed the dangerous items it seized at U.S. airport security checkpoints in 2014. The number of passengers screened in 2014  653 million  has increased by nearly 15 million since the previous year. A whopping 2,212 firearms were discovered in carry-on bags in 2014, which marks a 22-percent increase from the year prior. The top ten airports at which the most offenders were caught are as follows:

I love the way they act like there was no security before 9-11. It's more of a show now, but they still used to use x-rays and metal detectors back then.
