Firearms, ammunition, firearm parts and realistic replicas of firearms are always prohibited in carry-on baggage. However, such items can be transported in checked baggage provided the traveler declares them to the airline during the ticket counter check-in process, said Vera Adams, federal security director for Utah.

"The issue (is) that anytime you have any munitions or ordinances in checked baggage, it can cause a lot of operations to shut down," she said.
Adams noted that firearms in checked baggage must be unloaded and stored in a locked, hard-sided container.
Adams noted that in addition to facing local or state criminal charges, TSA reserves the right to levy a civil penalty against the passenger of up to $7,500 for bringing a dangerous weapon such as a firearm to the checkpoint.
She said to preclude any issues and to enhance air travel safety, passengers should do their part to avoid traveling with dangerous items.
"Make sure you check your luggage ... and it's clear of any firearms or ammo," Adams said. "Leave your firearms at home."

She cautioned passengers to make time before trying to board aircraft to "double-check the contents of your luggage.

Passengers 12 and under are allowed to keep their shoes on when going through the security check point," said Vera Adams, federal security director for the TSA's Utah division.

Passengers 75 and older can also keep their shoes on," she continued, "as well as any light-weight outer jackets."
"If they have plenty of time before their flight, they won't be stressed, they won't be rushed, and they can take their time going through the security process," Adams said.
