TSA stops passenger with 3D-printed gun loaded with live ammunition

1 / 15

Back to Gallery

The Transportation Security Administration discovered 68 firearms in carry-on bags last week, but one handgun stuck out, at very least figuratively.
That pistol was created entirely of parts created with a 3-D printing device, the TSA reports. It was a realistic replica, but was loaded with live ammunition in a passenger’s carry-on bag at the Reno/Tahoe, Nev., airport. According to Guns.com, the firearm is a .22-caliber pistol.

According to TSA, passengers who fly with firearms must leave them unloaded and locked in a hard-sided container, sent as checked baggage.
“When packed properly, ammunition can be transported in your checked baggage, but it is never permissible to pack ammo in your carry-on bag,” the TSA wrote on its blog. “You can travel with your firearms in checked baggage, but they must initially be declared to the airline.”

As 3-D printing devices become additional on the market, guns created of the machines have been controversial. Last year, the non-profit organization Defense Distribution sued the U.S. State Department after the federal government ordered the group to remove the plans for a single shot plastic pistol of the internet. So far, 3-D guns are not illegal to print.
TSA reports which airport screeners discovered 68 firearms in carry-on bags between July 29 and Aug. 4. Of those, 59 were loaded and 21 had a bullet in the chamber.
Passengers discovered with prohibited items like loaded firearms can pay fines as high as $11,000, according to the TSA.

“Just for the reason we find a prohibited item on an individual does not mean they had bad intentions; which’s for law enforcement to decide,” TSA wrote on its blog. “In most cases, folks just forgot they had these items.”
