LEE COUNTY, Fla.-- No one likes to wait in long security lines at airports, but during the holiday travel season, it's basically inevitable.

Making matters worse are passengers who continue to try to clear security with one of the items TSA has prohibited.

The Transportation Safety Administration confiscated 2600 prohibited items ranging from knives to baseball bats at Southwest Florida International Airport between November 15th and December 16th.

RSW Federal Security Director Robert Cohen says they even confiscated one gun and a box cutter similar to the ones used in the September 11th attacks.

He says TSA also continues to see passengers not abiding by travel guidelines for liquids.

Remember, liquids can be no greater than 3 ounces and must be kept in a single, one-quart bag.

If you are travelling with gifts, do not wrap them as they will likely have to be unwrapped for screening.
