A Southwest Airlines pilot was arrested at St. Louis Lambert International Airport yesterday after he was caught carrying a loaded 9mm gun in his luggage. 

Witnesses watched the course of events take place as the 51-year-old pilot was going through TSA security checkpoint. Authorities placed the pilot in handcuffs while telling witnesses he was being taken away for possessing (loaded) firearms.

According to TMZ, one officer told one of the pilots, “We don’t mess around here.”

Passengers scheduled to travel on Southwest flight #1717 to LAX we asked to exit the plane and given a $100 airline voucher.

Thank goodness senators just introduced a bipartisan gun background check bill.
