Federal law prohibits any tag on the outside of luggage that would indicate it contains a firearm

US Code Title 18 section 922

Quote:
(e) It shall be unlawful for any person knowingly to deliver or
cause to be delivered to any common or contract carrier for
transportation or shipment in interstate or foreign commerce, to
persons other than licensed importers, licensed manufacturers,
licensed dealers, or licensed collectors, any package or other
container in which there is any firearm or ammunition without
written notice to the carrier that such firearm or ammunition is
being transported or shipped; except that any passenger who owns or
legally possesses a firearm or ammunition being transported aboard
any common or contract carrier for movement with the passenger in
interstate or foreign commerce may deliver said firearm or
ammunition into the custody of the pilot, captain, conductor or
operator of such common or contract carrier for the duration of the
trip without violating any of the provisions of this chapter. No
common or contract carrier shall require or cause any label, tag,
or other written notice to be placed on the outside of any package,
luggage, or other container that such package, luggage, or other
container contains a firearm.

(f)(1) It shall be unlawful for any common or contract carrier to
transport or deliver in interstate or foreign commerce any firearm
or ammunition with knowledge or reasonable cause to believe that
the shipment, transportation, or receipt thereof would be in
violation of the provisions of this chapter.
