CNN notes that “transportation security officers confiscated a gun from about 10 passengers in every 1 million” during 2020, but are now “finding 11 armed passengers in every 1 million.” That is a jump of one passenger per million.
They point out that over 80 percent of the guns found at TSA were loaded.
TSA administrator David Pekoske told CNN, “I think more people are carrying weapons, just generally across the country, and then whatever is happening across the country we see reflected in our checkpoints.”View this post on Instagram

Pekoske added, “As a passenger, I don’t want another passenger flying with me with a gun in their possession.”
USA Today reports the top three airports for passengers with guns at TSA checkpoints were the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, and the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.

USS Constitution Fires 21-Gun Salute With Newly-Trailed Navy Sailors Aboard
BOSTON (CBS) — The USS Constitution made its way around Boston Harbor on Friday and fired a 21-gun salute while carrying 120 newly-trained Navy sailors. The sailors were recently selected to advance to the rank of chief petty officer.
As part of the Navy’s Heritage Week Training, the sailors lived aboard the ship, which is world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat.
The ship was closed to the public on Friday as the sailors dropped all three of the ship’s topsails for the first time since 2012.

Old Ironsides’ fired its 21-gun salute around 11:30 a.m., as it passed Fort Independence on Castle Island. It then fired a 17-gun salute about an hour later as it passed U.S. Coast Guard Base Boston, where the ship was built and launched in 1797.
The USS Constitution defended sea lanes from 1797 to 1855, playing a big role in the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812.
The USS Constitution will reopen to the public on Saturday.
