Once again U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) allegedly took a gun to the airport. And once again he was cited by law enforcement.

The far-right North Carolina Republican “was cited for having a gun at Charlotte Douglas International Airport Tuesday morning,” WSOC-TV9 reports.

It appears the gun may have been loaded.

“A photo obtained by Channel 9 shows a loaded Staccato C2 was recovered at Charlotte Douglas Tuesday morning.”

Last year in February a 9-millimeter gun was also found in Cawthorn’s carryon. He did not face any criminal charges then. It is not clear he will face any charges this time either.

Cawthorn claimed he was carrying during the January 6 insurrection as well.

One of the WSOC reporters posted this photo:
