    "More gun-toting travelers are caught at airports in Texas than in any other state, as inspectors across the U.S. find firearms and ammunition sewn into shirtcuffs and tucked among bags of kitty litter.

    Texas saw the most confiscations in 2014, with 424 guns found in screenings, according to Transportation Security Administration data compiled by Bloomberg. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, where 120 firearms were found in carry-on luggage, topped the list nationwide. The Lone Star state had a 25 percent increase from the previous year."

    This is good news; I'm glad that some folks at TSA are on the job!
