80. It makes perfect sense actually. If you have say, 20 guns among
1.9 million passengers, then that's 1 per 10,000 - so while it happens every day, the odds that any one passenger is carrying are low. If, as noted above, most guns are carried by accident, it would make sense that it's pretty consistent. That's how statistics works.
