It's weird how I don't hear many right-wingers complaining about 'gun-free zones' on airplanes.

A record 4,239 guns were seized at U.S. airports last year. Most were loaded.

record number of firearms were discovered at U.S. airport checkpoints last year, with more than 4,200 guns found at 249 airports nationwide, according to new government data. More than 86 percent of the guns found were loaded, according to the Transport Security Administration (TSA).

The airports that saw the most firearms discovered sit along the Sun Belt, from Atlanta to Arizona, in states with looser gun laws, reports CBS News correspondent Kris Van Cleave. CBS News dug through thousands of police records trying to understand why this problem continues to grow. Our investigation found while thousands of guns are spotted by TSA screeners, some appear to be getting through.

It's hard to believe, but there are some gun nuts who are so incredibly stupid they think concealed weapons by civilians are allowed on airplanes.
