TSA says it confiscated dozens of firearms at Ohio airport security checkpoints in 2022.

Threat level: Security officials stopped 6,542 firearms at 262 airports nationwide, the most recorded in one year. The majority (88%) were loaded.

  • Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport topped last year's list with 448 confiscated weapons.

Thankfully, our airports didn't come close to cracking the nation's top 10.

  • But Columbus' 2022 figure is still higher than in any of the previous four years.
