MEM 9mm 5-7-2014

(Memphis) A loaded gun was found in a carry on bag at Memphis International Airport around 5:30 Wednesday morning.

The gun, a 9 mm Sig Sauer, was in bag belonging to a man from Franklin, Tennessee.

The man was flying to New Orleans via Houston.

It appears the passenger forgot the gun was in his bag.

Mark Howell, a regional spokesperson for the TSA reminds people to check their bags for any banned items before leaving home.

This is the ninth gun found this year at the airport where a total of 18 were found in 2013.

    This happens all the time. This is not anything new, but it is disturbing that all these gun owners “forget” where their gun is.
