Add to this his driving without registration and not having his license. This is the 2nd time in about a year for carrying a loaded gun to TSA at an airport. Stupid would be a compliment to this moron.
Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina was cited for bringing a loaded handgun through a Transportation Security Administration checkpoint at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport, authorities said.
This is the second time in just over a year that airport authorities have stopped Cawthorn with a gun. In February 2021, agents at the Asheville Regional Airport found an unloaded gun and a loaded magazine in Cawthorn's carry-on bag, according to reporting from the Asheville Citizen-Times. Cawthorn's weapon was "secured at the airport and he retrieved it after his flight," the newspaper reported, citing the airport spokesperson. In July, when the story was published, a Cawthorn spokesperson told the Citizen-Times that the congressman had brought the gun "by mistake." He was not charged in the incident.
