Security has become a serious concern in many places around the country. Though carrying a gun is legal in many areas, one type of location where they are typically banned is airports. One Virginia man is now facing charges related to weapons crimes after allegedly bringing a gun to a Virginia airport.
According to authorities, the man was at a security checkpoint when the loaded handgun was discovered. An officer first noticed it in the man's carry-on bag in an X-ray screening. It is unknown whether the man intentionally brought the gun with him or mistakenly forgot that it was in the bag. In either case, the weapon was confiscated by police. Officials stated that a similar incident occurred at another Virginia airport only two days before.
