The TSA says it confiscated a record 73 firearms from airline passenger carry-on bags last week including one here in Hawaii.
The TSA says a loaded 22 caliber firearm was found in a passenger’s luggage at Hilo International Airport.
Passengers can travel legally with a firearm.
But that weapon must be unloaded, in a lock box, packed in checked baggage, and approved ahead of time by the airline.
Passengers who are caught trying to bring a weapon onto an aircraft could be fined up to $11,000.
