TSA agents at Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) stopped a man and his loaded handgun from boarding a plane.

Officials say the man from Etters, Pennsylvania was carrying a .380 caliber handgun with seven bullets in it when he entered the X-ray machine.

The man claims to have forgotten that he had the gun with him.

This is the seventh gun caught at BWI airport this year.
