FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- 11Alive has learned about a disturbing trend in Fulton County.
Officials are catching more people bringing guns into the courthouse. Seven so far this year -- and some of them were even loaded.
Most recently, a 35-year old woman with a pink Glock in her purse. And Wednesday, a Fulton County security specialist saw a shape on the x-ray that turned out to be a small black Bersa with a 7-round magazine.
The most common excuse, people forgot the weapon was on them.
Three months into the year, the number of guns confiscated matches the number for all of 2012.
