TSA Confiscates 3D Imprinted Handgun
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers at LaGuardia Airport stopped a Kansas resident from bringing the trigger and body of a 3D imprinted handgun past the security checkpoint on Wednesday, July 3.
In a statement TSA says that a TSA officer spotted the component of the handgun as the man’s roller bag entered the checkpoint X-ray machine. The item was confiscated by TSA and the man, a resident of Leawood, Kan., in Johnson County, was permitted to catch his flight without his gun and a security breach was successfully prevented.
Handguns and handgun parts are prohibited past airport security checkpoints, including 3D imprinted guns, says the report.
