ATLANTA (AP) - Federal authorities say more guns have been seized at security checkpoints in Atlanta's airport during 2018 than at any other airport in the nation.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that nearly 300 firearms have been found this year at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

That means it has set a record even before the year ends. Atlanta's airport has held the No. 1 spot in the nation for guns uncovered at checkpoints for the past two years.
