Woman carries loaded gun on plane completely undetected

Bungling TSA airport screeners at Orlando International Airport failed to notice a loaded handgun in a woman’s carry-on bag yesterday — and she was able to fly to New Jersey with the pistol in her purse. United Flight 15 was already in the air when the passenger, an unidentified 37-year-old Florida woman, realized her .380 caliber Ruger was in her handbag, said Port Authority police spokesman Al Della Fave. The woman is an Orlando-area firefighter who is licensed to carry the gun, a source said. She didn’t tell anyone on the plane about the weapon during the flight, which left Florida at 8:19 a.m. But when she landed at Newark Airport at 10:24, she immediately told a Port Authority police officer.
