HOUSTON — As if there's not enough to complain about when traveling. The TSA wants to get an even more intimate feel of travelers than ever before.

The agency is revamping pat-down procedures all in the name of security.

The new universal pat-down results from the record number of firearms found at airports across the country in February.

Seventy-nine guns were found and 21 of those were loaded!

TSA officials said the new procedure will not involve any new areas of the body that were not previously screened, but it will be more aggressive and extensive.

So next time you fly and an agent gets a little too hands on, they're just protecting the friendly skies.
