Madison Cawthorn admits he "erroneously" tried to bring gun onto plane - 2021-07-31
"The incident was first revealed in audio obtained by FireMadison.com, a group trying to drive the far-right Cawthorn from the halls of Congress," reported Justin Rohrlich. "But according to the 25-year-old legislator's spokesman, the entire dustup was just a simple mistake. 'Five months ago, while boarding a flight, Rep. Cawthorn erroneously stowed a firearm in his carry-on (that often doubles as a range bag) instead of his checked bag,' Cawthorn spokesman Micah Bock said in a statement.
Bock added that the Glock was "secured and unchambered," and stressed that "Rep. Cawthorn endeavors to always follow TSA guidelines, and quickly rectified this situation before boarding his flight."
