How the TSA’s new gun-tracking system works

The TSA is moving toward tracking travelers’ guns in a way that’s easier than ever before.

A new system called “SmartGun” will automatically collect and store data on travelers’ firearms and track their movements to the TSA.

That’s an important step, because the TSA has struggled with tracking guns in the past.

The agency has struggled to track guns used to commit crimes in the United States for years, and it’s a problem that has been exacerbated by a series of mass shootings in recent months.

But the TSA is now aiming to improve its tracking capabilities, which have long been difficult to do.

In an interview with the New York Times, TSA Commissioner John Pistole said that he expects SmartGun to improve the agency’s ability to track travelers’ weapons.

“We want to be able to do a lot more,” Pistole told the Times.

“I want to see a lot of more.”

The TSA has been testing SmartGun in a limited number of airports since late 2016, and Pistole says it has proven itself to be a promising system.

Pistole also said that the new system will help to speed up the screening process for travelers who have a firearm on them.

“When you have an outstanding criminal background check, you have a great chance of not being able to be screened,” Pistoles said.

“It’s a big thing to know you can be screened for it.”

The system will automatically gather and store the data that the TSA needs to track gun users in the airport, including whether a firearm is loaded, the caliber, and the date that it was fired.

“If a gun is unloaded, we can’t track that,” Pistols said.

The system is designed to make tracking guns a more efficient process, so it doesn’t rely on the TSA tracking gun owners.

The TSA’s current system for tracking guns was designed to allow the agency to track criminals by tracking the number of times a gun was fired, and whether a gun had been recovered or surrendered.

The new system, however, will only track a firearm’s location.

The data will be collected over a two-year period.

“This is a massive undertaking,” said Andrew Weiss, senior policy adviser at the American Civil Liberties Union, which is suing the TSA over the new tracking system.

“But I think that this is the first step in a long, long line of efforts by the TSA to improve gun safety.”
