Security Theater: Delta baggage handler accused of smuggling guns on flights

A baggage handler for Delta Air Lines moved a lot more than just luggage, authorities say — he also helped smuggle firearms.

And his accomplice managed to board a flight with 18 guns and ammunition in his carry-on bag, an affidavit states.

Security is only as good as its weakest link.

“Employees entering this area are not subjected to screening by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), neither at the time of entry into the employee parking lot, nor upon entry to the internal secure/restricted area at Hartsfield-Jackson,” the affidavit states.

This might be a glaring flaw in your security process, especially in this ‘post 9/11 world’
