Handgun Arrests on the Rise at Salt Lake City International Airport

Security officials -- at the Salt Lake International Airport -- don't know how to explain it.

They just know it's happening.

Apparently forgetful air passengers are being stopped at the security gate in record numbers.

Already this year -- barely one-third of the way in -- 18 air passengers have been arrested, for attempting to carry handguns onto planes.

Last year, the total number of arrests for the entire 12 months was 20.
