Packing for the Airport (Continued)

Headline on today's weekly report from the Transportation Security Administration on  weapons found in the last week in passengers' carry-on bags at U.S. airports:

"TSA Week in Review: 41 Firearms, 40 Stun Guns, 4 Grenades, 1 Rocket Launcher. No Partridge in a Pear Tree…"

Here's the breakdown just of the firearms found in the last week, via the TSA:

 Here's a link to the full report on the TSA blog.
