What on earth was Zonnique Pullins thinking?!

Per court docs via Us Weekly, Z.P. "attempted to go through the TSA checkpoint … while carrying a 380 Ruger semiautomatic pistol." After authorities couldn't locate a permit for the weapon, Ms. Pullins was brought to a local precinct.
Upon arrival at the station, the 20-year-old was promptly arrested and her gun was confiscated. The aspiring singer was then transported to Clayton County Jail and then released on bail.
At this point, T.I. and Zonnique's momma Tameka "Tiny" Harris have kept quiet on the scandal. Considering this has been a horrific month of gun violence, we hope they address Pullins' thoughtless actions.
We'll keep you updated as this case progresses.
