Air travelers love to bust the TSA, but they were productively busy last year according to their blog.
First, they screened almost ⅔’s of a billion people,
an actual 638,705,790.
That’s amazing, about 1,700,000 people every single day.
And it appears to pay off.
They averaged 5 guns a day, 1,813 firearms kept off planes in 2013.
And they are getting better at it, too. They even find them hidden in metal toolboxes.
That’s a 16.5% increase over last year.
Where do they confiscate the most guns?
They also find explosive vests,
loaded starting pistols,
And my personal favorite, swords hidden inside canes.
If their invasive pat-down pisses you off, maybe you’d prefer a plane the TSA did not check before going airborne.
I’m just sayin’.
