The government has banned laptops and other electronics on planes flying to the U.S. from certain middle eastern countries. 

Here in the U.S., you cannot carry a gun on a plane, but you can legally travel with a firearm. 

The proper way to have the gun is unloaded in a gun case. The ammunition may be in a box or in the clip, but must be places beside the gun, then locked in the case.

You may not have the gun in carry-on luggage and it must go in your checked baggage.
