APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) – Authorities stopped a man with a loaded handgun from boarding a plane at Appleton International Airport on Monday.

TSA reports an officer detected the gun in the local man’s carry-on bag on Monday afternoon.

Officials immediately alerted the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department. A deputy responded to the airport, confiscated the handgun, and escorted the man away from the checkpoint.

TSA stopped a woman with a loaded handgun at Appleton International Airport in early September.

Passengers are permitted to travel with firearms in checked baggage if they are unloaded, packed separately from ammunition in a locked hardback case, and declared at the airline check-in counter. Firearm possession laws vary by state and locality.
