The July Fourth weekend started off at Newark Airport security with what wasn't exactly a bang but still drew a lot of attention.

A TSA officer at a checkpoint X-ray monitor spotted a gun inside a traveler's carry-on bag, agency spokesperson Lisa Farbstein said.

It was the 10th firearm picked off at a Newark Airport checkpoint this year, she said.

The man told officials that he "forgot that he had his loaded gun with him," Farbstein said.

Port Authority police were alerted and took him into custody, Farbstein said.

“This is lining up to be what is likely the busiest travel weekend since the start of the pandemic and it’s no time to be bringing a deadly weapon such as a loaded handgun to a security checkpoint,” said Thomas Carter, the TSA’s federal security director for New Jersey.

“Not only is it illegal to carry a gun through a security checkpoint, but it is also disruptive to the security operation," Carter said. "It delays the travelers in line when a gun is detected. You can’t just toss a loaded into a carry-on bag and then head to the airport.

"This individual now faces a stiff federal financial civil penalty.”

Newark Liberty has had what the TSA and Port Authority say are an alarming amount of guns seized from passengers trying to board planes with them.

Civil fines exceed $13,000 per violation.

This applies to travelers with or without concealed gun carry permits.

If a traveler with a gun is a member of TSA PreCheck®, that individual will lose the privilege.

Then there are the criminal ramifications.

“Make no mistake,” Port Authority Chief Security Officer John Bilich said. “Those who break the law will be held accountable.”

Passengers can travel with firearms in checked bags if they are properly packaged and declared at the airline ticket counter.

Guns must be unloaded, placed in a hard-sided locked case and packed separately from ammunition. Then the locked case must be taken to the airline check-in counter to be declared.

Jordan Rodgers Reveals ‘Exact Moment’ He Knew He Was Falling for JoJo Fletcher

Getty Jordan Rodgers and JoJo Fletcher attend the CMT Artists of The Year

When JoJo Fletcher was “The Bachelorette” in 2016, Jordan Rodgers was an immediate frontrunner. He received her first impression rose, and as she told People after their finale aired, “From that first interaction, I knew I could fall in love with Jordan.” Fletcher admitted “that scared me a lot, right off the bat,” because she knew falling for him could “lead to heartbreak or something great.”

Despite her initial fears, Fletcher “took a leap of faith” and realized, “at the end of the day my heart was with Jordan.” He received her final rose, and he proposed. Fletcher noted, “To do anything other than follow my heart would be an injustice to why I did ‘The Bachelorette’ in the first place.” Rodgers quickly fell hard for Fletcher back then too, and he recently shared some candid snapshots and sweet commentary from behind the scenes during their journey. He revealed a secret signal Fletcher developed to show her love for him during, and there were plenty of other great tidbits “Bachelorette” fans would not want to miss.

Here’s what you need to know:

Rodgers Showed One Especially Powerful Moment View this post on Instagram

Rodgers initially shared the photos and notes on his Instagram stories at the end of July. Reddit captured and posted all of them, and “The Bachelorette” fans swooned over much of what he shared. The first photo showed Fletcher sitting on Rodgers’ lap as they kissed. “Before our first ‘actual date,’ aka One-on-One, and the exact moment I realized I was really starting to fall for her,” Rodgers noted of that kiss.

When Rodgers shared a photo snapped during his hometown date in California, he noted that those “little moments when the cameras weren’t rolling” were “the best and most important for us.” He noted they could really be themselves and joked around then, and “These moments are what really made us fall in love honestly.”

The Final Rose Ceremony Day Was Long & Emotional View this post on Instagram

Another photo captured a day off when Rodgers was in Los Angeles waiting for Fletcher to go through her other hometown dates. He pointed out he was wearing one of Fletcher’s hair ties on his wrist, a tidbit that really tickled many “Bachelorette” fans on Reddit.

“The hair tie… a little thing like that had to be so meaningful in this type of environment,” one Reddit fan commented.

Rodgers also included a moment from his proposal, which he noted was the “longest and most emotional day EVER” for the couple. He explained he knew production planned proposals for sunset, and because they picked him up hours before then, he was certain he was going to be dumped. “Needless to say it was a rollercoaster of emotions, which made it even sweeter,” he admitted. The final photo Rodgers shared was taken on the beach shortly after the couple got engaged. He shared they were “on an all-time high of emotions, and the most happy we had ever been in our lives.”

Ultimately, Rodgers and Fletcher beat the odds and made their romance work in the real world. They got married in May and “Bachelorette” fans really enjoyed seeing these special moments from when their love story was in its early stages.

“Omg not gonna lie – I had tears in my eyes by the time I got to the end! So sweet!!!” another person commented.
