What if the TSA Finds a Gun in My Bag?

More than a dozen passengers are arrested each year for firearm possession at West Palm Beach airports. That is according to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which reports most cases of arrests involving loaded firearms discovered in carry-on luggage. Those who are caught are arrested, criminally charged, and civilly fined. But what happens to the firearms right after it was confiscated?

What You Need to Consider Before Traveling with a Firearm

Packing Firearms

It is important to note that it is completely legal to transport firearms as long as it is unloaded and is kept in a locking rifle case or a locked hard-sided container as checked-in baggage only. Finding a firearm case for traveling does not have to be difficult. Before checking in, you must declare at the check-in or ticket counter that you have a firearm inside your check-in baggage. If you do not declare, you can be prosecuted under federal and state laws.

What Happens to Firearms Confiscated by the TSA?

If you have flown on an airplane, then you are well aware of the specific rules concerning prohibited items. It is easy to get confused. However, who in their right mindset would try to board a plane or take a cruise with loaded, unlicensed guns or two-foot-long knives? As it turns out, a lot of everyday people do.  

There are vast amounts of weapons seized in airports each year. These confiscated weapons, such as loaded firearms, unlicensed guns, and dangerous weapons, are usually destroyed, kept as prosecution’s evidence, auctioned on eBay, or sold at a state surplus warehouse store.

“David W. Olson is the best lawyer I have come across. He truly will sit and listen to your story and no matter what he will fight for your rights. He is very compassionate, and understanding. He will work with you and does his job with a good heart. Mr. Olson truly has saved my life and gave me a second chance. You wont go wrong with hiring David Olson as your attorney. I highly recommend him and I am proud to have chosen him as my attorney.”


Found the Best!

“David Olson has represented me on two occasions. I have since referred two of my friends and my nephew to him, and they have all told me they’ll always be grateful for that. Mr. Olson somehow had the charges dropped in both of my cases (actually, I do know how, because he and his staff answered all my questions and explained in detail things that I never would have thought of).”


Compassionate Attorney

"My husband and I hired Mr. Olson to represent our son a Florida gun shot victim. We are New Jersey residents. From day one we felt comfortable with Mr. Olson and found him to be easy to talk to and a very good listener. This was important to us after our horrible experience with another attorney who was more concerned with hearing himself speak than our wishes."


Personable and Highly Intelligent!

“I saw David today to discuss some possible outcomes and possibilities of a probable future case. I did not know if I was going to be charged at all but I wanted to speak to someone to get a better idea of what I was looking at and what my options were. As soon as I shook his hand I felt very comfortable and respected. I laid it all out for him and asked him every last question I had, all of which were answered respectfully and intelligently.”


The Best of the Best

"I have known David Olson for over 20 yrs. now and have had my rough times in my past and unfortunately I ended up in trouble with the law and really needed help from a real lawyer. I needed someone to listen to my side of the story and really fight my cases in court for me and get the BEST results for my cases. A very close friend said the man for the job is David W Olson; So I contacted him & he came to me the very next day to hear me out and I knew he was the lawyer that would do the best for me and he did.”

Hearty Recommendation

"I hired Mr. Olson from recommendation by family member. He was immediately behind my situation and put me completely at ease. There were no false promises, very upfront as far as expectations and outcomes.

His assistant, Jessica was a joy to work with as well. They came to my house, interviewed witnesses, went above and beyond and always respond to my calls. I totally endorse this attorney."
