BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A Rochester man allegedly attempted to take a loaded gun with him through security at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Transportation Security Administration officials spotted the loaded handgun in the bag at the X-ray machine.
TSA says they notified the NFTA, who responded and cited the man for disorderly conduct. The TSA says the FBI took the .380 caliber handgun, which was loaded with six rounds. You can see the gun in the included photo.
The man missed his flight to Orlando, but was permitted to rebook on a later flight, without his gun.
In a statement from the TSA, they explain rules about guns on planes. "Passengers are permitted to travel with firearms in checked baggage if they are properly packaged and declared. Firearms must be unloaded, packed in a hard-side case, locked, and packed separately from ammunition. Firearm possession laws vary by state and locality. Travelers should familiarize themselves with state and local firearm laws for each point of travel prior to departure."
