Most of the airports with the highest number of confiscated guns in the US were in the country’s relatively more gun friendly Southern states.
The top 10 airports according to TSA gun-confiscation data as compiled by Medill National Security zone were:
2. Dallas-Ft. Worth
4. Houston Int’l
5. Ft. Lauderdale
7. Dallas-Love Field
With the exception of Seattle, almost all the airports in the list are in the South, with Texas and Florida being the most represented states. These two states also have the highest numbers of concealed-weapon permits in the US and this may account for the unusually high number of gun-confiscations at the airports.
