“I think anybody who attempts to bring a gun on a plane after 9-11 is not okay,” one traveler told Atlanta’s WSB-TV.

Another witness added, “I don’t see how you would forget that you had that type of weapon in your luggage.”

The well-known pastor currently faces jail time and civil penalties up to $7,500.
