A Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport passenger has taken his “Call of Duty” a little too far. On Thursday, TSA agents found a handgun inside his gaming console as he was trying to pass through the security checkpoints.

“It’s never an idea rated E for everyone to pack firearm parts or guns in a carry-on bag. We’re not about to console anybody’s feelings on this topic either. Without going into graphic detail, gun parts, firearms and ammunition must be placed in checked bags. You’ll control your travel destiny by declaring these items with your airline and ensuring they are packaged properly,” written in the TSA’s social media post.

Security Will Be Tight For The Holidays

On their social media profile, you’ll see an x-ray image of the weapon inside the console. As they pull the console apart, you’ll see different parts of the gun and wires coming from the console.

As of late, there’s an increase in firearms found at security checkpoints in airports all over the United States. We should expect security to be airtight while we travel during the holidays. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Plan to be at the airport at least 2 hours ahead of your departure time to avoid missing your flight.
