 Posted: 11:50 AM January 15, 2014

PORTLAND — Security agents found 30 guns last year on passengers boarding planes at Portland, Eugene, Medford and Redmond.

The Oregonian reports that 21 of the guns were found by Transportation Security Administration agents at Portland International Airport. Three guns were found in each of the other airports.

The guns were most often spotted in carry-on bags at security scanners. In most cases the passengers said they simply forgot the guns were inside. The most common firearm — eight times — was a .38-caliber pistol.
