A loaded pistol was discovered in carry-on luggage at Tennessee's Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport this week, the Transportation Security Administration said, and the passenger was issued a citation while the weapon and ammunition were confiscated. "Passengers are responsible for the contents of bags they bring to the checkpoint," said Mark Howell, TSA spokesman. "Our advice is to look through bags thoroughly before coming to the airport to make sure there are no illegal or prohibited items."
