Jacobson offers a possible explanation behind the uptick in gun-carrying rates at airports: people who are still flying during a pandemic may be different — and more prone to carry a gun. In particular, leisure travelers have mostly stopped flying.  “People who are leisure flyers traveling with their families, they don’t bring guns to checkpoints,” Jacobson said.
