Nope. He did it on purpose so he could be in the headlines for something his cult would admire. His recent headlines have been about coke and orgie parties and wearing lingerie.

This gets him in the headlines for something american's morons will hi five him for.

Totally intentional.

They took away the weapon. They should keep it, so that it quickly becomes too expensive for Maddy to keep doing this. The confiscated gun should be donated to some poor inner city child who has no gun...

A 2k handgun? I hope you donate some serious training and range time to the kid as well so he can defend himself from all the people who would seek to relieve him of his new gun.

This guy can't stop breaking the law.

OK, I gotta ask....

What was his excuse when he was first caught with a gun at the airport? Was it along the lines of ... ~I didn't realize it was in my baggage~?

Regardless ... he was caught a second time for having a gun at the airport?

Is he unable to learn from his prior mistakes?

I mean, really....

If he was just gunning for "street cred" it would have been some cheap gun like a glock or S&W.

The kind of gun a member of the cult would be likely to have.

You can't fix stupid. This guy still needs to race Abbott down a flight of stairs.

I hate feeling this way but I hope someone pushes him down a flight of stairs. Preferably with M T Greene sitting on his lap.

Why isn't he on the "No Fly" list?

How many times before it is a felony?

Tillis vs Cawthorn:

Senator Thom Tillis
Insider trading by a member of Congress is a serious betrayal of their oath, and Congressman Cawthorn owes North Carolinians an explanation. There needs to be a thorough and bipartisan inquiry into the matter by the House Ethics Committee. #ncpol

Andrew Kerr

NEW: Multiple government watchdog groups told @dcexaminer that Madison Cawthorn may have implicated himself in an insider trading scheme.

The watchdogs said an SEC and DOJ investigation into this matter is warranted.

Ytpepo "benefit of the doubt" card.

They never leave home without it.

This is Cawthorn's 2nd firearms law violation. He has demonstrated he is not responsible to be trusted with guns and should lose his right to possess them.

Imagine the outrage we would be hearing if this Ilhan Omar. Fox news would be accusing her of wanting to hijack a plane.
