North Carolina Madison Cawthorn tried to board an airplane with a gun. It was taken by airport police and he will likely face a federal fine and loss of a special security status.
@SamuelYates @efolds I was studying him at the time so I can’t help but compare the Beauty Is and its reprise to William Blake's "Songs of Innocence and of Experience"
