Kathryn_SpiropoulosThis is Kathryn Spiropoulos, a 53-year-old woman from Ewing, New Jersey. On Wednesday morning at 6:50 a.m., say police, Spiropoulos showed up at Philadelphia International Airport carrying a loaded gun and knife.

According to a statement released by the Philadelphia Police Department on Wednesday afternoon, TSA agents found the following in her purse: a .45-caliber Glock semi-automatic handgun, which contained a magazine loaded with ten rounds, and a “credit card shaped object that folded into a knife,” presumably something like this.

The statement goes on to say that Spiropoulos does not have a carry permit. She was arrested and charged with firearms violations.
