    He wanted to draw attention to the fact that security procedures were not as effective as they should be. To do this, he went through the checks with a gun on his person or in his bag.

    If you approach a checking system,, are checked, and emerge on the other side, you go through it. You go through passport control, immigration, customs, etc,
