TSA(NEW YORK) — A New York man was arrested Tuesday at John F. Kennedy International Airport after a loaded gun was found in his luggage.

It’s the second time in four days a passenger at JFK has been spotted with a loaded gun in his carry-on.

The passenger was flying to Hawaii when his .22 caliber handgun was confiscated.

It followed a San Francisco-bound passenger on Saturday caught with a .40 caliber gun and two magazines each loaded with three rounds of ammunition.

Firearms are only allowed in checked baggage and only if they’re properly declared.
