Those who hate him are planting loaded guns registered in his name on him as he goes into the airport..........

Maybe the lizard people are using their transporter technology to beam the guns onto his wheelchair and hacking the databases to make it appear they are his guns.......
I'm still waiting for him to blame the democrats for him trying to carry a gun on an airplane.

Multiple violations!! Why hasn't he been arrested? At a minimum he should lose his gun license
NC does not license guns. He probably has a NC CHP (Concealed Handgun Permit) which can easily be revoked.

The fact is, very few states 'license' guns.

I am still amazed this guy gets away with this stuff.

I know some folks think he's not the guy they want to represent them. No wonder he has so many challengers for his 11th District seat.

Cawthorn's run-ins with the law
Pay wall :mad:

However my google-fu is strong tonight.

Firearms and weapons incidents

▪ Jan. 6, 2021, Washington, D.C.: Cawthorn claimed he went to Congress armed, The Asheville Citizen-Times reported, on the day a violent mob attacked the U.S. Capitol building to attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Cawthorn has not been charged.

▪ Feb. 13, 2021, Asheville: Airport security stopped Cawthorn for attempting to board a plane with a Glock 9 mm handgun and a loaded magazine, The News & Observer previously reported. Cawthorn was not charged, and security held onto the weapon for him to pick up when he got back from his flight.

▪ 2021, Multiple incidents: As Cawthorn visited school facilities around the state, he was accused of bringing a knife to at least four of those visits. There are several state laws with various levels of crimes related to knives on school property, the Citizen-Times reported, but Cawthorn has not been charged with any crimes for the incidents.

▪ April 26, 2022, Charlotte: Cawthorn was again accused of trying to go through airport security with a loaded gun, this time at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officers took away his gun and issued him a citation.

No wonder he is an irresponsible asshole.

No apology needed, I just think this needs to made visible to everyone.

9 driving infractions in 10 years! I was a road warrior for 30 years, often driving 50K a year, and my lifetime tally for 60 years of driving is maybe 5 or 6.

Cawthorn is an ass and definitely needs destorying. But, we see first hand how the Right tries to destroy people. 100% all this stuff is leaked by the Republicans.

I'm trying to figure out if he guzzled too much MAGA or not enough?

Has he really crossed a line the Trump has never crossed?
I think it's a combination of the fact that he embarrasses them, he's a freshman representative so he has no power base, and he's in a safe seat so he will be replaced by a more dependable Republican.

Take any one of those three away and maybe they are fine with him sticking around but really it's clear they've made a decision he's of no use to them.

If he gets reelected, it would be a blessing for the Democrats and the Repubs in his state know very well about it. Two more years of his shenanigans is not going to help the Repubs hide the fact that their voters want people exactly like Cawthorn, MTG et al because these cretins display the same antisocial antigov't treasonous tendencies that they adore about Trump.

How odd it is that Repubs in general despise the gov't their own politicians are an integral part of. How they can possibly reconcile this is an amazing thing to see.

The video is fratty douche nonsense not porn. He's guilty of being an immature asshole who never should have been elected to anything but the idiots of his district insisted.

He's just an ongoing embarrassment to the Republicans but you lay with clowns don't be surprised when you wake up with the big shoes on.

I’ve just now watched some of it. No sex, but it’s enough to drive the nails a little further in his coffin.
