CA Lawmaker Cited for Gun in Carry-on Luggage

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – A California Republican lawmaker and outspoken gun rights advocate has been cited for trying to bring a loaded handgun onto a Sacramento-bound flight. Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez says Assemblyman Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks had a Colt .45 with four rounds in it inside his carry-on luggage at Ontario International Airport. He says another magazine with five rounds also was in Donnelly’s carry-on bag. The lawmaker was passing through a security checkpoint at 7:45 a.m. Wednesday when he was detained. In a statement released by his office, Donnelly said he forgot to remove the gun from his bag. Ontario airport police did not return phone messages seeking to clarify Donnelly’s citation.
