Don’t Forget to Give TSA Officers a High Five

Categories: TSA, The Insider

Every day, TSA Officers stop 8 guns from getting on our airplanes. That’s over 3,000 this year alone!  

But guns aren’t the only thing these officers keep off our airplanes.  

TSA Officers have confiscated explosives, knives, and even a rocket launcher.  

Don’t believe us?  

Check out the TSA Instagram page and see the unique weapons TSA Officers find every day in carry-on luggage.  

So, the next time you get on an airplane, don’t forget to give TSA Officers a big high five for keeping our friendly skies friendly.
