  ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - The Transportation Security Administration says a passenger at Reagan National Airport was stopped and cited after an officer found a loaded gun in his carry-on bag at a checkpoint.
 
     The TSA says the man was carrying a loaded .40-caliber handgun on his way to board a flight to Montreal on Monday morning. The Stafford, Va., man was cited on a weapons charge and permitted to board his flight after the gun and ammunition were confiscated.
 
     The TSA says the man had a concealed weapons permit and told the authorities that he had forgotten the firearm was in his carry-on bag.
 
     Passengers can travel with a firearm under certain circumstances, such as if the weapon is packed unloaded inside a piece of checked luggage and declared at the airline counter.
