The Transportation Security Administration had found 67 guns this year at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport as of last week. Across the country, officials have seized 862 guns in the first half of this year, which is likely to surpass the record last year of 1,556 weapons recovered. "It’s just mind-boggling. Just stupid," said Tasha Mosley, Clayton County, Ga., solicitor general, noting how many people insist they forgot a gun was in their bag. "You need to know where your gun is at all times."
