(CHICAGO) – Illinois State Sen. Donne Trotter was arrested Wednesday for trying to bring a handgun onto a flight from Chicago to Washington.
TSA at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport found a loaded firearm in Trotter’s bag.
Trotter reportedly told investigators he didn’t realize the pistol and ammunition were still in his bag after working a security job Tuesday night.
This comes as a shock to some, as Trotter is a known gun control advocate.
