WTVM/CNN -

The number of guns confiscated at airports across the country has increased, CNN reports.

According to the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA), just over 18,000 guns were seized by airport security in 2013.

The most were found in Atlanta. Dallas-Fort Worth came in second.

TSA's policy states that firearms, ammunition and firearm parts cannot be in carry-on baggage. Unloaded firearms, stored in locked, hard-sided containers can be transported as checked baggage.
