TSA stops passenger with a knife...shaped like a gun...trying to board a plane

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) -Last week, a passenger at Washington’s Paine Field tried to get through a TSA security checkpoint with a knife, shaped like a gun.

Every week the TSA complies a list of weapons, including guns, found in people’s carry-on bags as they try to pass through security.

When commenting on the knife, the TSA blog posted, “Maybe this passenger was on the fence about bringing a knife to a gun fight.”

For the week of Aug. 5-11 the TSA found 77 firearms in people’s carry-on bags, 66 of which were loaded and 28 had a round in the chamber.

Last week the TSA found 77 guns in travelers' carry-on bags at various airports. These are pictures of just some of the guns confiscated.

The TSA finds a wide range of knives, throwing stars, inert and replica grenades and shells every week.

Last week, TSA was also surprised by a find in a woman’s bra that set off metal detectors.

On Aug. 7 a passenger in the Nashville International Airport was found with a box cutter in her bra.

“Why!?” the TSA blog reported. "An underwire should be the only metal item in your bra. Attempting to conceal items can lead to bra-blems, including a civil penalty and possibly being arrested.

TSA agents in the Nashville International Airport, on Aug. 7, stopped a woman who set off alarms at a security check point. She had this box cutter concealed in her bra.

TSA uses the blog every week to remind people you can not carry-on any item that could be used as a weapon, especially guns which can lead to a civil penalty of up to $13,333 or an arrest.
