SOURCE - The TSA confirmed that the passenger was able to board Delta Flight DL295 in Atlanta with the firearm and made it all the way to Tokoyo Narita International Airport, according to CNN.
"TSA has determined standard procedures were not followed and a passenger did in fact pass through a standard screening TSA checkpoint with a firearm at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on the morning of January 3,” a press release said.
A very scary situation in Atlanta/Tokoyo. There has been a lot of talk about the safety of flying recently with the government shutdown. While the workers are not being paid there are a decent amount of workers that are not showing up. While you may see less TSA at the airport, they are insisting this is not an issue. But after today maybe it is..
