A passenger undergoing a search at the Atlanta airport's main security checkpoint reached into a bag and grabbed a firearm, and it went off, causing chaos among travelers and prompting a temporary ground stop on flights Saturday afternoon, Nov. 20, 2021, authorities said. The TSA said the passenger fled out an airport exit. (David Goldman, AP File)
