Scotty McCreery Loaded Gun Incident At Airport.

Scotty McCreery, the country singer and American Idol alum was on his way to Nashville with a gun. He has a valid license to carry. But that doesn't mean airports let you take them with you. In fact, they frown on that.

Authorities said he had a loaded 9mm handgun in his backpack while he was on his way to Nashville from Raleigh. He said he was shooting at a firing range and forgot to take it out of the bag.  He was issued a citation.

And he told the media he's sorry and he won't forget again. 

“I take gun safety very seriously.”
