Transportation Security Officers found more than 1,800 firearms in carry-on luggage at checkpoints all over the United States in 2013.

Of the 1,813 firearms — or 5 firearms a day, on average — found at TSA check points in 2013, 1,477 or 81 percent were loaded. The number of found firearms was a 16.5 percent increase from 2012’s total of 1,556.

According to the TSA the top airports for gun discoveries were Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (111 guns found), Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (96 guns found), Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (68 guns found), Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (66 guns foud), and Denver International Airport (51 guns found).
