A woman was arrested at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank for bringing a loaded handgun in her carry-on bag.

A screener found the gun during a baggage X-ray Tuesday.

So instead of boarding a Southwest Airlines flight for Vegas, the woman was taken to jail.

It is legal to fly with firearms, but only if they are unloaded and put in checked baggage and declared to the airline.
