The TSA has confiscated a gun at the Albuquerque Sunport Friday morning.
Agents say this was the second gun found at the airport in just two days.
The 9mm Berretta Nano was found along with two loaded magazines during a screening of a passenger’s carry-on bag.
That passenger was cited but later allowed to fly.
Agents say the average civil penalty for a loaded firearm is $3,900 and half that amount for an unloaded one.
