PHOENIX -

Guns at the airport made headlines after Friday's deadly shooting at Los Angeles International airport and just this past week, Transportation Security Administration agents seized 39 guns at airports across the country -- and that's not all they found.

TSA agents seized not only guns, but loaded guns -- even right here in Phoenix and the list goes on.

Every week, TSA shows pictures of some of the items they've seized.  This week, in light of the shooting in L.A., it's all pretty chilling.

It's a scary thought -- someone walking up to a TSA checkpoint with a loaded gun, but TSA says it happens all the time.  This week, one passenger tried to conceal a pocket knife as a disposable razor.

In Phoenix, someone tried to go through security with a loaded gun, another person with a stun gun, two other passengers had novelty grenades in their carry-on bags -- but all of those items never made it past security.

TSA says just because they find these items on passengers doesn't mean the passenger meant any harm.  Sometimes people just forget to take them out of their bag.

Still, even if passengers are not arrested, they could face fines up to $7,500.

Here's the law: a lot of these items you can actually travel with, but they need to be in your checked baggage and declared at the airport.
