The TSA is reporting more than 1,500 firearms were seized at U.S.  airports last year.

Among those arrested: a Chick-fil-a executive and rapper Harold Duncan.

The majority of the guns were confiscated at the Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta.

Most of the top airports for the seizures were in gun-friendly areas of the South and Southwest.

New York’s three major airports are not in the top 20 because people in the Tri-State area are less likely to be legally carrying a concealed weapon.
