It seems unlikely, but it continues to happen.
Federal authorities say a man was detained at Omaha’s Eppley Airfield on Wednesday afternoon.
The Transportation Security Administration says the man had a loaded handgun in his carry-on bag, which was discovered as he went through the screening checkpoint.
The TSA says it was a Taurus Slim 40 pistol with seven rounds. The Omaha Airport Authority confiscated the weapon.
While the unidentified man could have faced a fine of up to $11,000, he was interviewed and released. No charges were filed.
It’s the 13th time this year a firearm’s been found during security screenings at the Omaha airport.
