Man tries to bring loaded gun to Norfolk International Airport (KORF)

The TSA did their job.

Now for the courts to do theirs.

Another rule-buster needs to face the music. Anyone with any sense knows you must check firearms at the counter and have that baggage put in the hold below deck.

There are signs to this effect all over the place.
