A record number of firearms was discovered in carry-on bags in the U.S. in 2016, the Transportation Security Administration says. In total, 3,391 firearms were found in carry-on bags at TSA checkpoints across the country -- averaging more than nine per day and amounting to a 28 increase in firearm discoveries from 2015, when 2,653 were discovered, the TSA said in a blog post on Thursday. Eight-three percent of firearms found at TSA checkpoints last year -- or 2,815 -- were loaded.
