Former North Carolina GOP Congressman Madison Cawthorn on Friday pleaded guilty to bringing a loaded gun through a TSA checkpoint last year.
Cawthorn was a HUGE target of the left after he spoke out about the orgies and cocaine use in DC.
In April 2022, the former lawmaker was stopped at a North Carolina airport for having a loaded gun in his carry-on.
Cawthorn said he accidentally packed the loaded weapon in his carry-on.
He was charged with a third-degree misdemeanor and fined $250.
Former North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn pleaded guilty Friday to bringing a loaded handgun through a Transportation Security Administration checkpoint at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport last year, according to his attorney.
Cawthorn, whose trial was set to start Friday, entered a guilty plea for the third-degree misdemeanor charge of possession of a dangerous weapon on city property, according to his attorney Missy Owen.
The former Republican congressman was fined $250, without probation, and his firearm will be returned, his attorney said.
“Mr. Cawthorn accepted responsibility for this mistake. Law enforcement noted his cooperative attitude at every step. He chose to resolve this case in a manner that would ensure his uninterrupted right to possess a firearm. He remains staunchly committed to responsible gun ownership,” Owen added.
