TSA to demonstrate proper way travelers can bring their guns with them when they fly

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Yes, travelers can fly with their firearms, but there’s a right way and a wrong way to do it. TSA is inviting local media to South Bend International Airport (SBN) Wednesday to learn how travelers can bring their firearms with them when they fly.

The number of firearms at checkpoints is on the rise nationwide. Last year, a record 2,212 firearms were discovered at U.S. airport checkpoints. A total of two were found at the SBN checkpoint.

So we’d like to show you the right way that travelers should be traveling with their firearms. (Hint: bringing it to a checkpoint is definitely the wrong way.)

You’ll see some examples of what not to do and what to do when traveling with a gun. Good visuals and hands-on examples for you.

When: Wednesday, June 17, 10 a.m.
