A central Iowa legislator has been cited for having an unauthorized gun inside the Des Moines Airport.

State Senator Brad Zaun, a Republican from Urbandale, says he accidentally left an unloaded gun inside a bag on Friday. TSA agents found it as the bag was scanned. Zaun, who has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, says it was “an innocent mistake” and he was able to make it to his flight on time.
