Henrie also commented on the situation just hours after the news was first revealed, taking full responsibility for his mistake. He revealed that although the gun was legally owned, he should not have brought it into an airport. He also thanked law enforcement for their support and professionalism during this time.

His full statement said:

I take responsibility for the situation at LAX today. I unintentionally bought my legally owned gun which is registered in my name to the airport. I am so sorry for any trouble it caused, but I am appreciative of TSA’s efforts in implementing the safety laws that are in place to protect our beautiful country. More than anything I am humiliated and embarrassed that this even happened. But am thankful to the TSA, LAPD and all involved today for their kindness and their professionalism during this process.
