WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Transportation Security Administrationofficials say they stopped a man with two unloaded guns in his carry-on bag at Reagan National Airport.

TSA officers caught the Martinsburg, WV man armed with two .44 Colt revolvers at the airport on Sunday.

The TSA officer who was staffing the x-ray machine spotted the two handguns as the passenger's carry-on items passed through the checkpoint X-ray machine, officials say.

Weapons are not permitted in carry-on bags, but can be transported in checked bags if they are unloaded, properly packed and declared to the airline.
